Today's applications require mixing and matching languages, platforms, and paradigms, which increases a solution's complexity. The authors propose a lighter approach that borrows a desired paradigm and incorporates it as an integral part of a preferred development environment. They've applied metaprogramming to internalize the ontology-modeling paradigm into a programming environment that's based on the Java ecosystem. Their method is also lightweight and suitable for small teams. They implemented an embedded domain-specific metalanguage, called Magic Potion, in the Clojure development environment, where it blends ontology, functional, object-oriented, and concurrent paradigms.
