Tools for Creation Text Domain-specific Languages: Syntax Checking Component Development
Domain-specific languages are languages designed to create programs in terms of a specific subject area. Such languages are able to involve experts of the subject area in the process of creating systems. A special kind of software (language tools) is used to create the DSL. The present work is devoted to consideration of the approach to developing the component syntax check for the language tools. This feature enables users to perform testing of a model on lexical and syntactic correctness relative to the built meta-model. Methods for constructing an abstract syntax tree, recursive descent parser for language analysis and programs, object-oriented programming for the development and integration of a component, and the theory of formal languages and grammars to generate designs meta-language are proposed to be used in this work. Thus, this study shows how component syntax check can be implemented and how it can help users to validate the program, increase the efficiency of their work in the process of using with the DSM platform.
