Modigen : model-driven generation of graphical editors in Eclipse

  • Domain-specific modeling is more and more understood as a comparable solution compared to classical software development. Textual domain-specific languages (DSLs) already have a massive impact in contrast tographical DSLs, they still have to show their full potential. The established textual DSLs are normally generated from a domain specific grammar or maybe other specific textual descriptions. And advantage of textual DSLs is that they can be development cost-efficient. In this paper, we describe asimilar approach for the creation of graphical DSLs from textual descriptions. We present a set of specially developed textual DSLs to fully describe graphical DSLs based on node and edge diagrams. These are, together with an EMF meta-model, the input for a generator that produces an eclipse-based graphical Editor. The entire project is available as open source under the name MoDiGen.
