Abstract

Domain-specific modeling is an approach of using customized, domain-specific languages tailored for the domain as a basis for modeling the target system.
The intent is to provide a means for domain experts to work with tools and a
language closer to their domain knowledge, while abstracting
away excess detail.
This should provide more effective communication and ease the work done by providing a higher abstraction level.
In the test automation domain, this means providing the domain experts with means to effectively create test cases based on their domain knowledge, and to communicate with the test automation experts.
Despite the potential benefits and its applications, this viewpoint domainspecific modeling has received little consideration so far in test automation research.
This paper reviews different approaches to applying concepts from domain specific modeling to test automation to provide a basis for further work in the area.
