Developing and maintaining complex, large-scale, product line of highly customized software systems is difficult and costly. Part of the difficulty is due to the need to communicate business knowledge between domain experts and application programmers. Domain specific Model Driven Development (MDD) addresses this difficulty by providing domain experts and developers with domain specific abstractions for communicating designs. Most MDD implementations take a generative approach. In contrast, the authors adopt an interpretive approach to domain specific model driven development.
