Product Line Requirements: Multi-Paradigm Variability Models

Miguel A. Laguna, Bruno González-Baixauli
2008 Workshop em Engenharia de Requisitos  
One of the most important issues in the development of software product lines is the elicitation, management, and representation of the variability. In this context, one of the most used instruments is the feature model. But a feature model (due to the open definition of feature) usually contains an amalgamation of various different variability aspects as structural, behavioral, non-functional, or platform variability. We propose to separate these variability aspects of the product line, using

The second part of the article explores the possibilities of identifying mappings between the feature models and the correspondent architectural counterparts. With these mappings, the automated creation of traceability links between the product line models is possible and hence the productivity in the development process of the product line will be enhanced. This approach also simplifies the separation in several development stages, using the appropriate paradigms as goals, features, package models, platforms...
