The project LEA-xDSML - Language Engineering for Analyzable Executable Domain-Specific Modeling Languages resides in the context of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), which proposes the use of domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) to reduce the complexity.
LEA xDSML is a research project concerned with language engineering methods for executable modeling languages. This project started in July 2018 at TU Wien and was moved in January 2019 to JKU Linz. Currently, it is carried out by the Software Engineering Department at JKU and funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. This project will run for three years.
LEA xDSML resides in the context of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), which proposes the use of domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) to reduce the complexity associated with the development of complex software-intensive systems, as, for instance, found in the automation domain, production domain, and automotive domain.
DSMLs are increasingly being developed to continuously leverage the domain-specific expertise of the various stakeholders involved in the development of complex system. Thereby, the integration of domain-specific knowledge into DSMLs can significantly improve the productivity of the development process and the quality of the final system. However, the development of DSMLs has also been recognized as a challenging and significant software engineering task itself.
