Google Acquires Developer Tools Provider Instantiations

By: Chris Crum - August 5, 2010

Google has apparently acquired yet another company – Instantiations. This is a provider of Java and Ajax development tools.

As MG Siegler (who first reported the news) points out, the company is known for its Google Web Toolkit designer, which is likely the reason for the acquisition.

Instantiations greets its site visitors with the following message:

No word yet from Google on this. Perhaps they’re waiting until tomorrow to announce it along with the reported Slide acquisition. You have to wonder if any other acquisition announcements are in store from the company.

The price tag on Instantiations is as of yet unknown.

    It will be very exciting. I hope Google to release WindowsBUilder freely available (as other Google development tools) or contribute the SWT/RCP/Swing editors to the Eclipse Project (Visual Editor is dead…). They are focusing on GWT, as it is suggested from the future announcements on the GWT blog. Hope to see a great visual SWT designer to be free!
