Appcelerator said today it has acquired Aptana, an integrated development environment for building web applications.
Aptana provides web developers with an enterprise grade development platform to build rich native applications that integrate with the cloud.
“We have always focused on enabling the best possible native application experience,” commented Jeff Haynie, CEO, Appcelerator.
“This announcement furthers that vision by empowering our growing community of developers to build, test, and deploy native, cloud-connected mobile applications faster and with higher quality than ever before. We are also excited to introduce Aptana’s millions of developers to the mobile innovation wave that we have been riding and supporting as a company over the past two years.”
Appcelerator will begin offering a free beta of its integrated Appcelerator/Aptana offering in late Q1, 2011. This release will include a full debugger, auto-complete, and robust editing tools for Titanium-based applications.
