Program comprehension for domain-specific languages
Maria João Varando Pereira, Marjan Mernik, Daniela Da Cruz, Pedro Rangel Henriques, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: In the past, we have been looking for program comprehension tools that are able to interconnect operational and behavioral views, aiming at aiding the software analyst to relate problem and program domains in order to reach a full understanding of software systems. In this paper we are concerned with Program Comprehension issues applied to Domain Specific Languages (DSLs). We are now willing to understand how techniques and tools for the comprehension of traditional programming languages fit in the understanding of DSLs. Being the language tailored for the description of problems in a specific domain, we believe that specific visualizations (at a higher abstraction level, closer to the problem level) could and should be defined to enhance the comprehension of the descriptions in that particular domain.

Comparing general-purpose and domain-specific languages : an empirical study
Tomaž Kosar, Nuno Oliveira, Marjan Mernik, Maria João Varando Pereira, Matej Črepinšek, Daniela Da Cruz, Pedro Rangel Henriques, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: Many domain-specific languages, that try to bring feasible alternatives for existing solutions while simplifying programming work, have come up in recent years. Although, these little languages seem to be easy to use, there is an open issue whether they bring advantages in comparison to the application libraries, which are the most commonly used implementation approach. In this work, we present an experiment, which was carried out to compare such a domain-specific language with a comparable application library. The experimentwas conducted with 36 programmers, who have answered a questionnaireon both implementation approaches. The questionnaire is more than100 pages long. For a domain-specific language and the application library, the same problem domain has been used - construction of graphical user interfaces. In terms of a domain-specific language, XAML has been used and C# Forms for the application library. A cognitive dimension framework has been used for a comparison between XAML and C# Forms.
