In this talk Sven Efftinge, original creator of Xtext, will present how you can easily create your own text based domain-specific languages (DSLs) with Xtext. We will explain what DSLs are and how you can benefit from them in today's software development projects. Language development is no longer rocket science.
Given a grammar, Xtext derives a parser and an IDE with syntax highlighting, code completion, outline view, real-time error reporting, among other standard IDE features.
Xtext is often used together with Xpand code generator. Also it is of course perfectly ok, to have no code generator at all but use the models dynamically at runtime.

Patrik Nordwall and Andreas Källberg will also introduce Sculptor, which is a productivity tool based on Xtext. You express your design intent in a textual DSL, from which Sculptor generates high quality Java code and configuration.
Sculptor is useful when developing typical enterprise or web applications that benefit from a rich and persistent domain model. Sculptor also provides a sophisticated CRUD GUI for administrative sections of the application or to serve as a scaffolding for your manually created pages.

Xtext is available at http://www.eclipse.org/Xtext/
