Final Thesis: Definition of a Domain-Specific Language using Qualitative Data Analysis (in German)

Abstract: The design of a domain-specific language, DSL, requires extensive technical and professional know-how. Essential is not only the creation of syntax, semantics and related tools of language, but also an extensive knowledge of the domain. In order to acquire the knowledge of domain experts, we present an approach based on qualitative data analysis (QDA). We illustrate the process of creating a DSL based on the derivation of a domain model of qualitative analyzed interviews with domain experts. We then present the integration of the acquired specialized concepts and activities in a DSL. Qualitative feedback from domain experts could confirm the successful implementation of the DSL and according to that also the entire process.
