Overview of this book

Developers of all levels can now easily develop custom, responsive, and rich web application clients with secure, scalable servers utilizing relational databases and RESTful services using WaveMaker Studio. Whether you need a departmental business application or a form application for your weekend club, this book will show you how to design, develop, and deploy professional grade web applications with WaveMaker. Easy Web Development with WaveMaker will help you use WaveMaker to design, develop, and deploy rich, responsive web applications, even if you are not a programmer. If you need to build a data-driven web application, but you only know ‘enough to be dangerous,' you need this book. This book examines every angle of using WaveMaker to build applications, from dissecting examples to customizing, deploying, and debugging your own applications. This book enables the non-professional programmer to become comfortable not only with using WaveMaker Studio itself, but also with the artefacts produced by the studio as well as the runtime and services provided by the WaveMaker framework. You will learn everything, from how customize the user experience with JavaScript and CSS to integrating with custom Java services and the Spring Framework server-side. Easy Web Development with WaveMaker 6.5 is packed with examples, code samples, screenshots, and links to equip you to be successful with WaveMaker Studio.

In our runtime read example, com.custpurchasedb.data.Lineitem is both the package and class name of the imported Hibernate entity and the type name for the line item entity in the project.

Maintaining type information enables WaveMaker to ease a number of development issues. As the client knows the structure of the data it is getting from the server, it knows how to display that data with minimal developer configuration, if any. At design time, Studio uses type information in many areas to help us correctly configure our application. For example, when we set up a grid, type information enables Studio to present us with a list of possible column choices for the grid's dataset type. Likewise, when we add a form to the canvas for a database...
