Abstract

Today, kiosk automata (kiosks, for short) are used for variety of services: from all sort of kiosks for providing informations, to kiosks for paying tickets and ATM's. Kiosks are usually programmed either using high level programming languages, like C++, or using HTML in conjunction with web browser. In this paper, we analyzed a vast range of kiosk automata and derived common characteristics. We present approach for programming kiosk applications based on Domain Specific Language (DSL), designed specifically to meet the needs of developing kiosk applications that are usually programmed using high level programming languages and are deployed on kiosks with touch-screen monitors. Our goal is to make development of such kiosk applications more rapid, while minimizing number of programming errors.

Key words

domain specific language; rapid application development; code generation; kiosks
