Domain-specific diagram language grammar definition method

N.G. Keberle, D.V. Chesanovsky
Annotations languages:

Ability to create syntactically correct diagrams using some domain-specific diagram language is achieved either procedurally – via embedding of syntax checking means into the visual editors, or declaratively - defining a domain-specific diagram language grammar. The paper introduces one method of declarative definition of domain-specific diagram grammar. Shown is the applicability of the method to the language of ER diagrams.
