Surf the AppWave here!


  1. Sounds interesting, I want to try it... wait, what????
    405MB download? For an App catalog? Even the horrible iTunes is smaller!

  2. You need to download an app to use this thing?!?

    iTunes is ridiculous enough. Imagine having to install an amazon app, an eBay app, a HMV app, a digitec app, a Yamaha app, a....

  3. Is this thing written in Delphi?

    I was going to download it (actually started the download), but it turns out that you need to activate via your e-mail, and that it's only a 30-day trial.

    Besides a bloated 405MB start-menu, what do I get, really?
    Am I missing something?

    Fuck that... I cancelled the download.


  4. Ok, after reading about this on other websites too, I couldn't resist my curiosity, and downloaded it anyway.

    If you're in doubt: don't bother.

    It messes your machine up with full installations of Java, Apache, TomCat and Interbase, and who knows what else, and it claims 3 TCP ports.


    I don't see why anyone would want to have this. Maybe some system administrators would like the idea of it?

    Why didn't they make this with Delphi? At least it would be lean and mean.

  5. The AppWave browser is a Delphi app. The AppWave backend is Java.

    Start using and see how great it is :)

  6. AppWave is interresting but a 405 MB monster download? Nobody won't that!
    Why not build that tool completly with you're own developer tools Delphi or C++ Builder? and have small, fast and smart executables?

    It will be interesting to see how this goes. I started basic design on a similar product about 18 months ago but shelved the idea when MS hinted that a Windows integrated package manager / app store was on the way. As it hasn't appeared yet I assume it will be in the Windows 8 time-frame. Emb will need to get some traction on AppWave RSN and integrate with the Windows feature when it is released.

  8. I really don't like to say 'RTFM', so I'll just say: watch the intro video:

    In 405 MB you'll get:
    * server: for managing applications, users, licenses
    * client: for browsing and launching applications

    It's more than just a private app store. Because you don't install any other program. You just click the app and it runs.

    Give it a try.

  9. phantastic this "intro"

    the usual hollow ad-phrases, no info. time wast. fire the manager in charge

    what about:
    -who may contribute?
    -which tools you need/ able to contribute?
    -what when MS will come with similar stuff?

    i hate this methods stealing my time

  10. In my opinion they should be making sure they get a DEBUGGED and FULLY WORKING 64 Bit Delphi out of the door first given that its YEARS late rather than diverting the resources on things like Appwave.

    Not that I am suprised given alot of the same old faces in charge from the Borland days and What a marvellous job they did ;)

  11. Very true remark from PascalBoy:
    "In my opinion they should be making sure they get a DEBUGGED and FULLY WORKING 64 Bit Delphi out of the door first given that its YEARS late rather than diverting the resources on things like Appwave."

    I hope the next D version will comprise 32 AND 64 bit AND a lot off error cleaning and feature implementing as requested in the QC-DB

  12. I am really interested by downloading the Appwave, but kind of reluctant since I saw it's 405 MB in size, I think it's too much
