This is also true for DSLs. Let’s look at the price you have to pay to get all the benefits described above. 1 Effort of Building the DSLs Before a DSL can be used, it has to be built37 . If the DSL has to be developed as part of a project, the effort of building it has to be factored into the overall cost-benefit analysis. g. a large class of web or mobile applications can be described with the same DSL), so here the investment is easily justified. g. pension plan specifications) are often very narrow in focus, so the investment in building them is harder to justify at first glance.

55 UML can be seen as an integrated collection of DSLs that describe various aspects of software systems: class structure, state based behavior, or deployment. However, these DSLs still address the overall domain of software. 56 It is interesting to see that even these sectors increasingly embrace DSLs. I know of several projects in the aerospace/defense sector where UML-based modeling approaches were replaced with very specific and much more productive DSLs. It is also interesting to see how sectors define their own standard languages.
