Software and Systems Modeling theme issue on


Domain-specific modeling (DSM) provides a modern solution to demands for higher productivity by constricting the gap between problem and solution modeling. In the past, productivity gains have been sought from new programming languages. Today, domain-specific modeling languages provide a viable solution for continuing to raise the level of abstraction beyond coding, making development faster and easier.

In DSM the models are constructed using concepts that represent things in the application domain, not concepts of a given programming language. The modeling language follows the domain abstractions and semantics, allowing developers to perceive themselves as working directly with domain concepts. The models represent simultaneously the design, implementation and documentation of the system (which can be generated directly from the models). In a number of cases the final products can be automatically generated from these high-level specifications with domain-specific code generators. This automation is possible because of domain-specificity: both the modeling language and code generators fit to the requirements of a narrowly defined domain.

The Journal of Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM, invites original, high-quality submissions for its theme issue on “Domain-Specific Modeling” that is focused on topics related to DSM, including:

- Software development processes with DSM

- Experience reports describing success/failure in implementing and using domain-specific languages/tools

- Approaches to define DSM languages

- State of the art descriptions of tools for DSM

- Metrics for productivity using DSM techniques

- Novel approaches for code generation from domain-specific models

- Issues of support/maintenance for systems built with DSMs

- Testing, system confidence, test case generation, validation and verification within the DSM context

- Impact of DSM on software architecture

- Evolution of languages in accordance with domain

- Metamodeling frameworks and languages
