Comments (2) Visits (3426)
Today IBM announced it has acquired Gluecode Software, a privately-held company known for developing open source application infrastructure software based on Apache Geronimo, the open source Web application server platform.
I'm pleased to see IBM take another step to demonstrate that it values open source and open standards. IBM's support of Apache projects continues to grow, and with this move IBM effectively commits to Apache Geronimo as the open source application server of the future, which combined with WebSphere gives IBM a rich set of technology to serve a variety of clients' needs.
The Gluecode acquisition also shows that developers who work on open source projects get rewarded. I'd imagine a few of you are happy to see such activities.
