Like model-based approaches, domain-specific languages (DSL) are becoming increasingly popular in modern development projects. The use of DSL-based technologies enables completely new functionalities to be implemented in software development projects, since this makes complex logical relationships machine-readable and can therefore be processed automatically.
Domain-specific languages (DSL). A DSL is always the opposite of a universal programming language, such as C ++ or Java. It can only be used for a very specific and well-defined domain, so it always focuses on a very specific problem. By modeling a formal language, complex issues can be modeled in a machine-readable manner.
JetBrains MPS. The Meta Programming System (MPS) from JetBrains has established itself as one of the most professional and modern development frameworks around the subject complex of domain-specific languages. This framework impresses with its concept, which allows working in the form of projecting editors directly on the underlying language model (the abstract syntax tree). This completely eliminates the need for formal grammars, lexers, scanners and parsers, which are always required in traditional software development for the interpretation of domain-specific languages and which have to be implemented and maintained with great effort. Since the tool chain is also based on the Java programming language, DSL-specific functionalities can also be expanded programmatically at any time using MPS. Alternatively, language models generated with MPS can be reused directly in existing applications.
