Level of study:
Course completion requirements:
Assessment and completion of the course: Credit test and examination
Continuous assessment: Student passes the continuous assessment and receives credits when he or she meets the requirement to obtain at least 21% out of 40%.
Credit test
Final assessment: Student passes the final assessment and passes the examination when he or she meets the requirement to obtain at least 31% out of 60%.
Overall assessment: Overall assessment is the sum of the assessments obtained by students in the assessment period. The overall result is determined in accordance with the internal regulations of the Technical University in Košice. (Study Regulations, the internal regulation principles of doctoral studies)
Learning outcomes:
The subject unifies the principles of domain engineering and metaprogramming, property modeling, and software factories. It provides an opportunity to understand how these techniques are related and how to use them in practice. The student will become familiar with the field of domain-specific languages, their design, implementation, and testing.
Brief course content:
1. Models vs. programs, domain-specific languages.
2. Model-driven software development.
3. Software factories and software lines.
4. External and internal domain-specific languages.
5. Generators of syntactic analyzers.
6. Graphical modeling languages.
7. Defining constraints and validating models.
8. Generation of artifacts from models.
9. Optimization of generated artifacts.
10. Developmental language environments.
11. Testing domain-specific languages.
12. Composition and evolution of domain-specific languages.
