One response to the trend toward object orientation in programming languages has been the inclusion of object orientation to COBOL. Additionally, graphical user interfaces have been added to existing batch and interactive COBOL programs. This has been accomplished through COBOL compilers and the addition of GUIs created in other languages. An expansion of both of these additions to legacy COBOL programs has been the incorporation of COBOL into Microsoft's .NET Framework. Through this process old legacy COBOL programs can appear as if they were written in a contemporary language such as C#.
