Every domain of the business world, from sales to warehousing to

shipping, has a language all its own. A DSL, or domain specific

language, is a computer programming language that is created with a

particular domain in mind. Because it uses familiar terminology, and

because it is designed to be simple, a DSL can be used by nontechnical

business people to write or at least change existing programs.

DSLs are developed from normal programming languages, and the

examples in this book are about a subset of those that run on the Java

Virtual Machine, such as Java itself, Ruby, or Scala. DSLs in Action

uses real-world examples to thoroughly guide the reader through the

process of building a DSL.


F In-depth techniques of DSL implementation.

F Highly practical.

F Uses real-life applications for illustration.

F Author is a well-known DSL blogger and expert.

This book is written especially for developers familiar with JVM-based

languages, but many of the techniques presented will work in other

programming environments as well.
