ABSTRACT
This article presents a case study for applying the domain-specific languages (DSL) approach to building a configurable customs information system. The use of DSLs let Customs Engine's developers follow a highly iterative and reuse-oriented design method. Analysts benefited from the ability to specify system behavior directly, instead of relaying this information to programmers via lengthy human-language documentation. However, the developers encountered problems when trying to enable nontechnical domain experts to write or modify DSL programs by themselves.
