Programming languages that support Language Oriented Programming (LOP) allow developers to extend the host language with new programming features. The extensions include new concrete syntax constructs that are both re- placements for and interleaved with the host language. This paper describes the general features that are re- quired in order to support the LOP approach in a lan- guage. The paper shows how many of the features are implemented in the XMF language system, describes the shortcomings of the implementation and outlines an ex- tension to Java that would address these shortcomings.
