Visual Ajax Studio 3.2
WaveMaker has released the v3.2 update to Visual Ajax Studio, its development tool for both Ajax- and Java-based web applications. As with many visual tools, the software allows users to avoid entering custom code, forms or frameworks; VAS, though, is a free and open-source program, with a drag-and-drop interface. It is nevertheless intended for enterprises, and when combined with the Rapid Deployment Framework can quickly deploy apps to IT architectures such as Apache Tomcat and J2EE.
Version 3.2 is said to be first version of the software for the Mac, and is now available as a beta installer for Mac OS X Leopard. The software also contains "full" support for Apple's Safari browser, where previously it only supported Firefox and Internet Explorer. VAS 3.2 is a 57MB download.
