WaveMaker logo About two years after taking over WaveMaker, a company that develops Java tools, VMware has now sold the trademark and the technologies behind it to India-based Enterprise Java firm Pramati for an undisclosed sum. WaveMaker is a development tool that automates many programming steps; it is designed to provide even non-expert developers with a quick way of creating web applications.

Written in Java and JavaScript, the development platform integrates open source technologies such as Spring Framework, Spring Security and Dojo Toolkit, as well as WaveMaker's Visual Ajax Studio for developing Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) with a Java application server. When taking over the company two years ago, VMware had emphasised the platform's close integration with the Spring application framework. At the time, the company said that programs created with WaveMaker would ultimately be Spring applications, allowing experienced developers to build on them without having to reimplement them from scratch when making adjustments at a later date.

When, at the end of last year, VMware's parent company EMC announced the foundation of the Pivotal Initiative, a venture that includes VMware's Greenplum, SpringSource, Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Labs divisions, no mention of WaveMaker was made. Pramati has said that it intends to use the acquisition to grow and enhance the support of Java standards in cloud computing.
