Domain specific languages for model transformation have recently generated significant interest in the model-driven engineering community. The adopted QVT specification has normalized some scheme of model transformation language; however several different model transformation language paradigms are likely to co-exist in the near future, ranging from(More)
Various forms of pervasive computing environments are being deployed in an increasing number of areas including healthcare, home automation, and military. This evolution makes the development of pervasive computing applications challenging because it requires to manage a range of heterogeneous entities with a wide variety of functionalities. This paper(More)
By nature, ubiquitous computing applications are intimately intertwined with users' everyday life. This situation is challenging because it requires to make the development of applications accessible to end-users. Furthermore, ubiquitous computing consists of a variety of areas, including home automation and assisted living, raising a need for an open-ended(More)
Home automation environments are dedicated to helping users in their everyday life and are being deployed in an increasing number of areas, including home security, energy consumption, and assisted living. The range of situations to be addressed makes the development of home automation applications challenging: it requires to manage heterogeneous entities(More)
Networked technologies, omnipresent in our surroundings, have increasingly more computing power offering interfaces to easily access their functionalities. These technologies offer a wide testing ground for research, especially in applied computer science. Because people are permanently interacting with these technologies, they form an evident platform to(More)
A range of methodologies and techniques are available to guide the design and implementation of language extensions and domainspecific languages. A simple yet powerful technique is based on source-tosource transformations interleaved across the compilation passes of a base language. Despite being a successful approach, it has the main drawback that the(More)
This paper presents the formal definition of a domain-specific language, named Pantagruel, following the methodology proposed by David Schmidt for language development. This language is dedicated to programming applications that orchestrate networked entities. It targets developers that are professionals in such domains as building management and assisted(More)
