Textual Approach for Designing Database Conceptual Models: A Focus Group

Jonnathan Lopes, Maicon Bernardino, Fábio Basso, Elder Rodrigues

Abstract

Different approaches to software development are based on at least three database models: conceptual, logical, and physical, requiring distinct abstraction levels to represent complementary concepts. The selection of a conceptual database modeling approach, among other things, depends on the problem domain, knowledge, and preferences of the developer. This paper presents a new domain-specific textual language devoted to the conceptual relational database modeling, i.e., entity-relationship modeling. Furthermore, we present a preliminary evaluation conducted to analyze our proposed DSL, comparing two grammar versions in a focus group research method.
