Comparison Between Different Abstraction Level Programming: Experiment Definition and Initial Results
Domain-specific languages and especially Domain-Specific Modeling Languages (DSML) are mentioned to achieve 5-10 times performance gains compared to traditional software development practices due to raising the level of abstraction. The data for the cases where these gains have been witnessed is usually not available. Therefore, in this paper, the authors introduce a simple but comprehensive and affordable experiment framework which can be utilized for measuring the benefits and drawbacks of DSMLs in an open fashion, i.e. publishing the data and the results and enabling a possibility to repeat the experiment by others.
