Application development today, particularly for the web and mobile, is complicated by an ever-changing world of languages, frameworks, and technologies. Further compounding the problem is the need to support the myriad of runtime platforms, devices, and middleware layers that are typically in the mix. EGL, a programming language that was recently open sourced on Eclipse.org as part of the EDT (EGL Development Tools) project, addresses these complexities by providing a common, extensible language and programming model across the various aspects of the application. Inherent in EGL is a cross-platform compiler that allows a single language to be used to deploy code to the diverse platforms that exist today in most enterprises. EGL also allows the retargeting of code to different platforms and frameworks as these technologies evolve or as new technologies appear.
Come learn about EGL, how it is architected, and how it can be extended through the use of stereotypes and annotations. Also learn how you can use EGL today to simplify development of modern applications for the web, mobile, and enterprise systems.
Will Smythe is the Product Line Manager for EGL and EGL-related tools and solutions from IBM, including IBM Rational Business Developer and Rational Migration Extension
