A SCALA-BASED DOMAIN SPECIFIC LANGUAGE FOR STRUCTURED DATA REPRESENTATION

Kazuaki Maeda

Abstract

This paper describes Sibon, a new representation written in a text-based data format using Scala syntax. The design principle of Sibon is good readability and simplicity of structured data representation. An important feature of Sibon is an executable representation. Once Sibon-related definitions are loaded, the representation can be executed corresponding to the definitions. A program generator was developed to create Scala and Java programs from Sibon definitions. In the author’s experience, productivity was improved in the design and implementation of programs that manipulate structured data.
