Description of the course

The course starts with a gentle introduction of model-driven engineering. Domain-specific languages (DSLs) are then described (defintions, taxonomy, implementation techniques, etc.). A focus is made on external DSLs with Xtext. Techniques for metamodeling and model transformation with Xtend/Xtext are presented.

As a running example we used a configurable video generator. The last part of the course is entirely devoted to variability (modeling, reverse engineering, testing, etc.). Finally a project is proposed and consists in implementing a configurable, Web video generator using JHipster for the Web stacks.
