Abstract:

This thesis presents an XML-based representation of source code, called SrcML, which is used as a basis for Intentional Programming. The combination of SrcML and Intentional Programming is investigated with a focus placed on extensibility. Three exemplary extensions are provided: the addition of a new statement to the Java programming language, a Lisp-like syntax for Java source code, and the creation of control flow graphs in extensible environments.
