I’ve attended the session on Domain-Specific Modeling @ MoDELS ‘08. It’s nice to see the latest scientific efforts on this subject. It’s even nicer to see the similarities between these efforts and the features of the Mendix technology.
In short the sessions did emphasize the importance of language integration (e.g. multiple connected DSLs describing a full application) and the management of this integration, so-called multi-model management.
At Mendix we have already been working for more than three years on this topic, which has resulted in a modelling environment supporting multiple DSLs describing different system aspects. Key elements of our multi-model approach are:
For more information on our DSLs and the supporting tooling see our technology overview. For some background theory of MDE and DSL check out DSL and MDE, necessary assets for Model-Driven Approaches.
