Glue Language

Definition - What does Glue Language mean?

Glue language refers to a programming language that is designed specifically to write and manage program and code, which connects together different software components. It enables interconnecting, support and the integration of software programs and components created using different programming languages and platforms.

Techopedia explains Glue Language

Glue language primarily enables creating glue code. The glue code written in glue language doesn’t provide any functional value to the core software, but enables connecting the processes and features of multiple smaller and directly incompatible components. The gluing of these components provides enhanced features and functionality to the base software / solution.

Glue language is very useful in rapid prototyping environments where multiple software utilities are glued together quickly before being developed in a single programming language or framework.

VBScript, Ruby, Python, Perl and PHP are popular examples of glue languages.
