Apologies if this is old news:
"WebGain Inc is selling its TopLink Java/database connectivity business to application server wannabe Oracle Corp in a deal that also sees the Java IDE leader exit the tools market"
This piece of news and together with HP's decision to drop support for their application server are quite some hot news that will probably influence a lot the app server market. Consolidation is coming and the companies start to fight. Big question still is: who will buy BEA?
