Abstracting Data and Image Processing Systems using a Component-based Domain Specific Language

Thomas Hoegg, Christian Koehler, Andreas Kolb

Abstract

This work proposes a textual and graphical domain-specific language (DSL) designed especially for modeling and writing data and image processing algorithms. Since reusing algorithms and other functionality leads to higher program quality and mostly shorter development time, this approach introduces a novel component-based language design. Special diagrams and structures, such as components, component-diagrams and component-instance-diagrams are introduced. The new language constructs allow an abstract and object-oriented description of data and image processing tasks. Additionally, a compatible graphical design interface is proposed, giving modelers and architects the opportunity to decide which kind of modeling they prefer (graphical or textual, including round-trip engineering).
