Legacy Applications

Legacy applications are normally considered to be authored in first or second generation programming languages.

COBOL, Fortran, Assembly, C and Pascal function on mainframe computer that fall into the category of Very Large Machines (VLM’s) like IBM’s Multiple Virtual Systems(MVS) or Virtual Machines (VM) another IBM incarnation.

The majority of these applications are procedural in nature. In their prime no such “objects” existed and there were usually monolithic applications.
