A domain-specific language is a specialized and problem-oriented language. Successful application of a DSL largely depends on provided tools, so called language workbenches that support end-programmers creating, editing, and maintaining programs written in a DSL. In this paper, we describe four different tools supporting the creating of language workbenches, identify commonalities and differences and compare these tools by means of a set of criteria.
