Software development industry heavyweight Rational Software Corp. has acquired NeuVis Inc. of Shelton, Conn., a provider of development tools for building Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and .Net applications and Web services. Rational did not disclose the amount it paid for privately held NeuVis.
NeuVis' product line, including its NeuArchitect rapid application development toolset, is aimed at corporate IT developers who need to build J2EE and .Net applications, but lack experience in those development architectures. Developers who build application models using Rational's Rational Rose modeling tools will be able to use those models to drive application development with the NeuVis products, according to the company. But a Rational spokesman says the company is still working out the details of the best way to integrate the two companies' product lines.
A total of 26 NeuVis employees, including its development team, will join Rational, which is based in Lexington, Mass. The company employed between 30 and 40 people, and some administrative employees are being laid off. The Rational spokesman says the acquisition has been completed.
