We discuss techniques used to access legacy event generators from modern simulation environments. Examples will be given of our experience within the linear collider community accessing various FORTRAN-based generators from within a Java environment. Coding to a standard interface and use of shared object libraries enables runtime selection of generators, and allows for extension of the suite of available generators without having to rewrite core code.
