Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs)--languages geared to specific vertical or horizontal areas of interest--are generating growing excitement from software engineers and architects. DSLs bring new agility to the creation and evolution of software, allowing selected design aspects to be expressed in terms much closer to the system requirements than standard program code, significantly reducing development costs in large-scale projects and product lines. In this breakthrough book, four leading experts reveal exactly how DSLs work, and how you can make the most of them in your environment.
With , you'll begin by mastering DSL concepts and techniques that apply to all platforms. Next, you'll discover how to create and use DSLs with the powerful new WeiRuan-->WeiRuan DSL Tools--a toolset designed by this book's authors. Learn how the DSL Tools integrate into Visual Studio--and how to define DSLs and generate Visual Designers using Visual Studio's built-in modeling technology.
In-depth coverage includes
Determining whether DSLs will work for you
Comparing DSLs with other approaches to model-driven development
Defining, tuning, and evolving DSLs: models, presentation, creation, updates, serialization, constraints, validation, and more
Creating Visual Designers for new DSLs with little or no coding
Multiplying productivity by generating application code from your models with easy-to-use text templates
Automatically generating configuration files, resources, and other artifacts
Deploying Visual Designers across the organization, quickly and easily
Customizing Visual Designers for specialized process needs
