A DSL For Logistics Clouds

Karakostas, B. & Katsoulakos, T. (2013). A DSL For Logistics Clouds. Paper presented at the The Fourth International Conference on Cloud Computing, GRIDs, and Virtualization, 27 May - 01 June 2013, Valencia, Spain.


Cloud is a new area of specialization in the computing world, and, as such, it has not been explicitly addressed by traditional programming languages and environments. Therefore, there is a need to create Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) for it. This paper presents such a DSL that targets logistics clouds, i.e. networked resources and systems of logistics organisations. The DSL is implemented on top of the functional concurrent language Erlang and its distributed data management system Mnesia. The paper presents features of the DSL that implement commonly occurring use cases in the logistics cloud such as message exchange, document sharing and notifications. We show how program features in this DSL map to the underlying Erlang/OTP runtime.
