SpringSource - JBoss past, app server future?

"Exclusive SpringSource, steward of the ever-popular Spring open source Java framework, is getting an operations specialist from the investment community with an application-server background.

The position of president and chief operations officer has apparently been created and awarded to Rob Bearden, an entrepreneur in residence with Benchmark Capital. Bearden is former chief operations officer for JBoss, now owned by Red Hat.

Benchmark has been an investor in SpringSource since May 2007, committing $10m in Series A funding. Since then, Benchmark's been joined by Accel, with the companies jointly putting $15m in Series B funding earlier this year."
