Abstract

Given all the different benefits that domain specific languages are reported
to produce, why are they not a widely adopted practice? The essence of the
question has roots in industrial experience of the two authors of this report,
but it was put out as a discussion starter at OOPSLE 2020. During the
discussion session itself, there were some possible reasons voiced and
possibly related concerns expressed. In this report, we try to condense those
in a short coherent text. Not claiming any generality and fully acknowledging
the anecdotal nature of our evidence, we still think that such a conversation
is useful to have within the SLE community.
