What is EGL?
EGL is IBM's latest programming language, developed specifically with business environment in mind.
Just as COBOL, when it appeared in 1960's, simplified business application development,
thereby enabling significant increase in productivity in comparison with previously
used assembly languages, nowadays EGL offers a simpler and more productive means of
developing cross-platform and network-enabled business applications for
distributed IT environments.
Business environments are in a constant state of flux; production platforms,
application architecture and infrastructure are all changing continuously. This leads to
an ever-increasing number of different languages, tools and processes. With this in mind,
EGL has been constructed in such a way as to support the use of application development
abstractions which enable programmers to avoid the multiformity and complexity of evolving
technical interfaces of different platforms, allowing them to focus on building business functionality.
In order to achieve this level of platform-independence, EGL does not employ virtual machine
or interpreter technology; but instead, translates the program into languages which assure
compatibility with the intended platform. In effect, EGL supports code implementation by means
EGL is easy to learn, regardless of your prior programming experience, whether in procedural
or object-oriented programming. We recommend you join the growing number of EGL users and discover
the ways in which this revolutionary technology can help you speed up the development of innovative
