"Covers a lot of ground...not only widely but deeply."
Your success—and sanity—are closer at hand when you work at a higher level of abstraction, allowing your attention to be on the business problem rather than the details of the programming platform. Domain Specific Languages—"little languages" implemented on top of conventional programming languages—give you a way to do this because they model the domain of your business problem.
DSLs in Action introduces the concepts you'll need to build high-quality domain-specific languages. It explores DSL implementation based on JVM languages like Java, Scala, Clojure, Ruby, and Groovy and contains fully explained code snippets that implement real-world DSL designs. For experienced developers, the book addresses the intricacies of DSL design without the pain of writing parsers by hand.
