Software programmers no longer expect to make software that only works on PCs and servers. An advantage of using DSL for their software development is that they can achieve a high efficiency compared to their development investment. However, previous research works have not conducted detailed workflow and DSL for web-development reflecting current prosperous web and mobile technology. In this paper, we propose an integrated language driven development (LDD) framework especially for the real time game server development. Using LDD framework, expert developer can make DSL language, so that novice developer or non-programmer can utilize the DSL for their easy programming works. We illustrate detailed LDD framework with our simplified game server language. With our framework, even novice programmer can program massive game server programming works during game development process, utilizing composed DSL written by expert programmer. This paper contributes to increase development productivity and ease of maintenance in game development process. Our workflow helps developers build their own language and can use in their software implementation for rapid prototyping. Using our LDD framework, many developers can build various domain applications not limited to games, including chatting applications, real-time monitoring and much more.
