Its a day of Acquisitions – Oracle to Acquire BEA and SUN to Acquire MySQL

Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on January 16, 2008

What more does one need after a nice little vacation. News of acquisitions of course :-). Well it looks like a day of acquisitions. I am not sure how many of these is true. Use your own discretion to validate these since i am just pointing you to some market news of which i have absolute no knowledge before hand or even now for that matter. If it is indeed true wonderful days ahead for the entire Java, SOA and BI community. We would have the best of breed of everything interacting with each other seamlessly. I am thinking far too ahead of course but again i am entitled for free thoughts aint i? :-). Coming to the actual acquisitions themselves following are some news articles.
