red5 writes "Internet application testing vendor RadView plans to migrate its flagship product to an open source model using the General Public License (GPL), internetnews.com has learned. The announcement is expected to be made on Wednesday April 11.
The move to open source its products could have implications for commercial vendors in the sector.
On one hand, it could be a strategic play against Mercury Interactive, which HP bought for $4.5 billion last July. On the other hand, according to one analyst, the move could just be a reactive mode by RadView to fend off competition from other open source providers of these software tools."
