About DSL Tools V1

Domain Specific Language (DSL) Tools Version 1 is a set of tools for creating graphical designers hosted in Visual Studio. Using these tools, it is possible to create a fully-functional graphical designer with little or no coding. Then the tools automate the process of packaging the designer in an MSI file for deployment to users’ machines. Also included is a text templating engine, which interprets templates to generate text artifacts from information in models edited using the designers. One application of this is code generation.

The primary audience for these tools are systems integrators and large enterprises who want to automate aspects of their software development processes by generating code and other implementation artifacts from models expressed in domain specific languages.
