Designing a DSL solution for the domain of Augmented Reality Software applications Specification

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Code repetition, lack of reuse and basic errors are typical problems in the industry that decrease the productivity during the software development process, and this is no exception in the domain of interactive applications with focus on Augmented Reality (AR). In this paper, we describe a new Domain-Specific Language (DSL), based on an existing AR software framework that tackles this problem by adding a new abstraction layer for product specification. The proposed language’s abstract syntax covers the definition of application logic’s organization, its configuration, objects construction and behaviour definition. The language’s concrete syntax was implemented using a metamodeling language workbench. A real case study within the context of an AR software house was used for validation purposes.
