In case you missed it Tuesday, the consolidation trend taking over the open source world is continuing. But this time, it's a little different. Instead of an open source start-up being swallowed by a large proprietary company, SpringSource's purchase of Covalent brings two open source companies together.

 

eWEEK reports:

[SpringSource's] acquisition of Covalent, announced Jan. 29, brings together two open-source market leaders and addresses widespread demand for a simplified application infrastructure based on the Spring Portfolio and Apache projects such as the Apache Tomcat application server, said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource and a co-author of the Spring Framework.

Covalent will become a division of SpringSource, the story says, and the Covalent brand will continue to exist.
