May 1, 2013

It is my pleasure to announce that as of May 1, 2013, Pramati, a software technology firm that offers its customers products and services for software development, especially for Java and cloud platforms, has acquired certain assets of WaveMaker from VMware.

Founded in 1998, Pramati is a software engineering company with over 600 skilled engineers that has a long heritage in Java development. Over the years they have been recognized by Gartner and other respected names as a leader in Java technologies. Pramati’s stated goal is to provide its customers with fast, flexible, and easy-to-use Java development tools that can help them rapidly build enterprise applications and take advantage of business opportunities in fast moving markets. As part of this goal, Pramati will continue to support all WaveMaker users and customers.

Michael and I have been helping the Pramati engineers get up to speed with the WaveMaker code base as they prepare to take over management of the WaveMaker project and this website. We are excited to welcome Samir, Deepak and the entire CloudJee team to the WaveMaker community.

Our sincere thanks for everyone’s support, business and interest in WaveMaker over the years. We are are confident that WaveMaker and its awesome community are in very good hands with Pramati.

All the best,

    Hi EdC,

    Some questions we have in mind…
    Why This change of the owner?.
    Are you going to be involved in next future with Wavemaker?.
    What about the technical team?.
    What are the future plans for Wavemaker..
    Headquarters will be in USA?.
    The Open Source project will continue or are you going to change this policy?.
    I know there are many loose ends at this time, but it’s important for the community members to understand the new situation. Also we have invested a lot of time in WaveMaker..

    Your Sincerely,

    Alfonso

    I would like to propose that wavemaker should use ebean instead of hibernate, hibernate is too complex and clumsy to run, ebean has simple api for database access and manipulation,.

    secondly it should drop the use of spring and and embrace play framework instead. they have tons of modules to support including websockets , etc,

  9. Rajibul says:

    Its a great news that WM is alive. Will wavemaker remains open source and free? When we expect the next release?

  10. Congrats on acquisition. Long live WaveMaker!

    Is it possible to fork Wavemaker codebase, so it is still made available as opensource, when Pramati decides to not opensource in future.
