The Collaborative Research Centre "On-The-Fly Computing" works on foundations and principles for the vision of the Future Internet. It proposes the paradigm of On-The-Fly Computing, which tackles emerging worldwide service markets. In these markets, service providers trade software, platform, and infrastructure as a service. Service requesters state requirements on services. To satisfy these requirements, the new role of brokers, who are (human) actors building service compositions on the fly, is introduced. Brokers have to specify service compositions formally and comprehensively using a domain-specific language (DSL), and to use service matching for the discovery of the constituent services available in the market. The broker's choice of the DSL and matching approaches influences her success of building compositions as distinctive properties of different service markets play a significant role. In this paper, we propose a new approach of engineering a situation-specific DSL by customizing a comprehensive, modular DSL and its matching for given service market properties. This enables the broker to create market-specific composition specifications and to perform market-specific service matching. As a result, the broker builds service compositions satisfying the requester's requirements more accurately. We evaluated the presented concepts using case studies in service markets for tourism and university management.
