A Web Specific Language for Content Management Systems
Source: University of Oxford
Many web applications can be specified in terms of the content-types and security policies they provide. Some web frameworks aim to ease the implementation of this family of programs. The authors propose an extensible domain-specific language to specify these programs, and methods to synthesize the applications from their specification. This allows domain experts, notably web designers, to describe the business domain at higher level than code and automate the implementation process. They target a software product line architecture for content-management systems. This allows new features of the product line to be derived on demand rather than limiting the variability of new products to existing features.
