VMware Enters Cloud Development Fray the Easy Way

Think writing a cloud apps takes tons of pizza, Mountain Dew and years of C programming skills? VMware wants you to think again. It just announced its intention to buy Wavemaker, a company that makes Java tools it claims are so easy, even I could use them!

The company targets developers who aren't really developers, but on a lower rung -- opting for visual tools that help the apps build themselves.

The drag-and-drop Wavemaker tool can build apps that run through all popular browsers, and can be hosted on OpSource, RackSpace or Amazon EC2 clouds.
