Interface21, the company behind the Java-based Spring Framework, said on Thursday that it has received $10 million in venture funding from Benchmark Capital.
The funding will be used to expand the company's sales and support infrastructure.
The Spring Framework is a popular open-source tool for speeding up development of corporate server Java applications. Interface21, which makes money providing support and training around Spring, said that the framework is more widely deployed in a single Java application server.
Benchmark Capital has had a good track record of spotting successful open-source firms, having invested in Red Hat, MySQL and JBoss.
