What you can do with DSLs

Domain-Specific Language Tools lets you create a domain-specific language that has your own graphical designer and your own diagram notation, and then use the language to generate appropriate source code for each project.

A typical application of a DSL is to generate program code or other artifacts. When you define your DSL, you can define text templates that read a model of the DSL and generate text files.

Typically, a domain-specific language is created when a development team has to write similar code for several products. For example, a company that specializes in baggage handling systems might define a baggage track DSL from which they can generate some of the code for each installation. The benefits of the DSL are that it can be understood by their customers, that the code generated from it is reliable, and that the system can be rapidly updated if the customers' requirements change.
