Abstract

Web 2.0 communities emerge regularly with the
growing need for domain-specific programming over Web
APIs. Even though Web mashups provide access to Web
APIs, they ignore domain-specific programming needs. On
the other hand, developing domain-specific languages (DSLs)
is costly and not feasible for such ad hoc communities. We
propose User Language Domain (ULD): an intermediate Webbased architecture using a domain-specific embedded languages
approach that reduces the cost of DSL development to plugging
the Web APIs into a host end user programming language. We
have implemented the proposed architecture in the context of
smart devices, where we plug the functionality of different Lego
Mindstorms devices into a Web-based visual programming
language. We expect that several domains, such as smart homes
or wearable computers can use the ULD architecture to reduce
development effort
