This paper presents the current state of the DOMAINS Management Language (DML) which was in its first version developed in the ESPRIT project DOMAINS and enhanced thereafter. DML is an extension of the ISO standard GDMO offering a formal and executable behaviour. The language features, the corresponding compiler and the embedding management architecture are explained. In addition, experiences gained with employing DML for non-trivial applications is reported on. Although DML has not yet reached

The approach of combining a specification language with an implementation language proved to be very helpful: It allowed to use already standardised GDMO specifications and to convert them into executable programs with relatively little programming effort.
