This is a book that will interest readers with specific needs in the fields of software product development. It is mainly concerned with the guidelines for implementing what is now referred to as domain-specific modeling (DSM). and in particular:

  • How to identify the necessary language constructs?

  • What options are available for code generation?

  • What tools are available for a new DSM language?

The text has the advantage of including DSM example cases that are described in the book on an accompanying CD which is, the publishers say, paired with an evaluation copy of the MetaEdit+tool to examine and use for modeling languages and code generators. It is worth noting that evaluation versions are also included for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
