Abstract

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.
