The Object Rexx programming language is an object-oriented scripting language initially produced by IBM for OS/2. It is a follow-on to and an extension of the "Rexx" language originally created for the CMS component of VM/SP and later ported to MVS, OS/2, PC DOS and Windows 95. The OS/2 version of IBM Object Rexx is deeply integrated with SOM.
On October 12, 2004, IBM released Object Rexx as open source software, giving rise to Open Object Rexx (ooRexx), available for Linux, Solaris and Windows, including a WSH Scripting Engine for Rexx. The released sources however didn't include significant piece of the SOM support, Object Rexx for OS/2, nor the IDE of IBM Object Rexx for Windows.
