    As I planned some time ago, I installed the first WaveMaker 6.6.0 Release on an test server on which Debian 7.3 Wheezy, Dovecot, Postfix, Apache2 etc together with ISPConfig 3.0.53 is running. Everything is just working well, no any problem (till now) so far.

    WaveMaker is an RAD (Rapid Application Development) Apps which fully run on visual base. It works with quite a bit of different Database incl. MySQL, SQL, ACCESS, and many others. Unlike most of the other such applications, WaveMaker is Freeware and Open Source.

    While installing on Debian Linux Server (and other for sure), you'll need to have at least 3 ports for using available:
    1. Server Port: 8094
    2. Shutdown Port: 8019
    3. SSL Port: 8443

    For Database you could use the already in use Database apps like MySQL etc. with their respective ports and access.

    The Installation Procedure is easy. A must is, that JAVA JDK 6U45 need's to be installed upfront of install of WaveMaker. Java could be downloaded for free from Oracle. On the Debian Linux Server, the default download location should be /opt because JAVA need's to be installed there as well as WaveMaker.

    After downloaded JAVA JDK 6u45.bin, run the following command as root:
    chmod +x jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin #Adding execute permission
    This is for 64 bit installation of JAVA, for 32bit please change the code/command to:
    chmod +x jdk-6u45-linux-i586.bin
    Now you'll have to update the Path and add JAVA_HOME env variable:
    echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/opt/jdk1.6.0_45/bin' >> ~/.bashrc
    echo 'export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_45' >> ~/.bashrc
    source ~/.bashrc
    JAVA should now be installed correctly and work with no problems. Download WaveMaker now also to /opt and rund the following command:
    dpkg -i wavemaker_6.6.0.RELEASE_amd64.deb
    For 32bit installation, change the code/command to:
    dpkg -i wavemaker_6.6.0.RELEASE_i386.deb
    This will install WaveMaker 6.6.0.Release. To start WaveMaker on Server, use the following command:
    Now open your Browser and use your Server URL or IP: http://{serverIP}:8094/wavemaker
    At the first start you'll need to run the configuration tool, just proceed with that and it will download and install some required components. After that is done, Wavemaker will return to it's normal start screen. In this first screen you'll see the following (see picture) and from there you could start to observe Wavemaker or run the tutorials videos etc. to get your first informations.


    That's all and you could now start for to test or build your first application.

    NOTE: I'll add the downloads links a bit later today because I'm still on uploading to Mega. Thanks.

    Edit: Added the command for 32bit installation of either JAVA and WaveMaker 6.6.0.Release

    All downloads could be done from Oracle and WaveMaker itself. For to have all directly together I uploaded the required files to Mega and here we are:

    For 32bit installation:

    For 64bit Installation:

    There's also an Windows Version of WaveMaker which could be downloaded from Wavemaker too: http://wavemaker.com/

    The latest News are a free version of WaveMaker Cloud (ver. 7.0) which gives you an limited space on their Server. But I suggest, before using that Cloud version, check out all limits first!!
