Recently, several cloud modeling approaches have emerged. They address the diversity of cloud environments by introducing a considerable set of modeling concepts in terms of novel domain-specific languages. At the same time, general-purpose languages, such as UML, provide modeling concepts to represent software, platform and infrastructure artifacts from(More)
A multitude of Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) have been implemented with XML Schemas. While such DSLs are well adopted and flexible, they miss modern DSL editor functionality. Moreover, since XML is primarily designed as a machine-processible format, artifacts defined with XML-based DSLs lack comprehensibility and, therefore, maintainability. In order to(More)
Today, modeling and programming constitute separate activities carried out using modeling respectively programming languages, which are neither well integrated with each other nor have a one-to-one correspondence. As a consequence, platform and implementation details, such as the usage of existing software components and libraries, are usually introduced on(More)
Model-driven software development and systems engineering rely on modeling languages that provide e cient, domain-speci c abstractions for design, analysis, and implementation. Models are essen-ions for design, analysis, and implementation. Models are essential for communicating ideas across the engineering team, but also key to the analysis of the system.(More)
The introduction of Extensible Markup Language (XML) represented a tremendous leap towards the design of Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs). Although XML-based languages are well adopted and flexible, their generic editors miss modern DSL editor functionality. Additionally, artifacts defined with such languages lack comprehensibility and, therefore,(More)
The advances of domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) and their editors created with modern language work-benches, have convinced domain experts of applying them as important and powerful means in their daily endeavors. Despite the fact that such editors are proficient in retaining syntactical model correctness, they present major shortages in(More)
The maintenance of modern systems often requires developers to perform complex and error-prone cognitive tasks, which are caused by the obscurity, redundancy, and irrelevancy of code, distracting from essential maintenance tasks. Typical maintenance scenarios include multiple branches of code in repositories, which involves dealing with(More)
The necessity of software evolution caused by novel requirements is often triggered alongside the advancement of underlying languages and tools. Although modern language workbenches decrease the opportunity cost of creating new language implementations, they do not offer automated and complete integration of existing languages. Moreover, they still require(More)
