Lua is a programming language that has been well accepted by the game development community as a script language. That is because Lua offers a series of methods to allow the use of C functions inside Lua code and vice-versa. When developers choose to code a game in Java, apparently Lua is not an option anymore. The objective of this work is to show that Lua can also be used as script language for games coded in Java. For that developers just need to know the LuaJava library and a few tips. 
Modularizing and Evolving Applications using Scripting Modeling Languages
Domain-Independent Models are mainly used for documentation purposes and are most of the time too generic to be directly executed, even by code generation. Domain-Specific Models can sometimes beExpand
