Research in Domain Specific Languages

My research colleague Vassilis Karakoidas is working on better programming support for domain specific languages (DSLs). Today he claimed that DSLs were hyped during 1998-2002, and now interest has waned.

To verify his claim I queried the ACM Digital Library for articles containing the word sequence "domain-specific language" for successive yearly periods.

My results (number of hits per year) indicate that there was indeed a spike in publications in 1999, but, that by and large, this research field is exhibiting a healthy growth.
