Quite some time ago I saw an MS video where they were trying to explain their DSL-making tools. Suffice to say it was so technical that they totally failed to sell it to me. I can only find a download from 2005, seems like they abandoned the whole thing. Have you ever looked into that stuff?

Briefly enough to know that I don't like it.

MS didn't abandoned the DSL tools. They are a part of the Visual Studio Extensibility package (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vsx/default.aspx) as well as other stuff for VS 2008.

Int the middle of the page there is a link to their Domain-Specific Language Tools Documentation.

Never used this one. I will give it a try. The name reminds me of MonoDevelop which I've at least opened on Linux ;-)

Hi,

Have you seen some of the free frameworks that Francois Vanderseypen has been working on over the last few years?

Unfold (WPF)

Netron (winforms):

simply awesome stuff.

Think of Microsoft's DSL Tools (part of the Visual Studio SDK) as a Designer Designer. Basically, you use DSL Tools to design a designer for a DSL. Some examples of solutions built using DSL tools include the designers for LINQ to SQL, Entity Framework, and the 2008 Class Designer. There is a designer for nHibernate that uses DSL Tools to generate your hbm files.

Yes I know that 3 of the 4 examples I just gave were for O/RM tools but it's a perfect example of a solution that can be addressed with DSLs.
