Speak the language of domain - part 2

While researching for post - speak-language-of-domain i spent some time building external DSL and experimented with parser and compiler.

Parser & compiler are important components for external DSL because it converts external DSL to executable.

We will take a few examples of external DSL and look at what is required to build a full solution.

Rule Engine

I will use below DSL as external dsl and try to convert it into an executable.  

We allow users to upload dsl files and change the behavior of the system at runtime based on rules in the dsl file. Such a type of feature will make the system very flexible and powerful.
Remember Peter Parker principal "With great power comes great responsibility" , so use such things in the production system at your risk!
