VMware acquires Wavemaker

VMware announced the acquisition of WaveMaker, one of the most widely used tools for quick web development, with 135.000 downloads a month.

The acquisition fits in VMware’s Platform as a service strategy, building on top of the Spring framework to provide easy-to-use development tools to non- professional or non-coding developers.
With this acquisition, VMware aims to bring many more business users to the Spring based cloud vision, Code2Cloud, while building sinergy with its existing Spring Roo tool.
