We’re excited to announce that Instantiations is now part of Google!
Yes it’s true. Instantiations’ award-winning Java and Ajax development tools and our
incredible Eclipse team have been acquired by Google. We are all very excited about
taking our technology and team to the next level - and there is no bigger step up
We very much appreciate your patronage and interest through the years. As part of
Google, we look forward to continuing to work with you. Please stay tuned for exciting
new announcements coming soon on the Google Web Toolkit blog.
Instantiations Java development products and people have a new home at Google, but VA
Smalltalk™ is staying put - with the same people, same products, and same dedication
to our customers and to Smalltalk.
Instantiations主要产品为基于Eclipse的Java、SmallTalk商业开发工具，比如GWT/Swing/SWT/RCP Designer、Window Builder Pro、CodePro、Window Tester Pro等，Google此次收购，未包含SmallTalk产品线及相关开发团队。“新的”Instantiations公司继续保持独立，主要进行SmallTalk相关产品线相关业务，其原Java/AJAX开发工具产品线及开发团队将通过此次收购进入Google。
个人认为Google的主要目的在于该公司的GWT Designer，这将为GWT提供强大的可视化开发工具，而通过此次收购，Google不仅仅是收获了GWT Designer及其团队，更是得到了一个强大的可视化开发工具开发团队。难道你不期待或者希望有Android Designer吗？
