Software Description

EGL (Enterprise Generation Language), originally developed by IBM and now available as the EDT (EGL Development Tools) Open Source project under the EPL (Eclipse Public License) , is a programming technology designed to meet the challenges of modern, multi-platform application development by providing a common language and programming model across languages, frameworks, and runtime platforms. The language borrows concepts familiar to anyone using statically typed languages like Java, COBOL, C, etc. However, it borrows the concept of Stereotype from UML (Universal Modeling Language) that is not typically found in statically typed programming languages. In a nutshell, EGL is a higher-level, universal application development language.
