Managing in a generic way the evolution process of feature-oriented <i>Software Product Lines</i> (spls) is complex due to the number of elements that are impacted and the heterogeneity of the spls regarding artifacts used to define them. Existing work presents specific approaches to manage the evolution of spls in terms of such artifacts, <i>i.e</i>.,(More)
As <i>Software Product Lines</i> (SPLs) are now more widely applied in new application fields such as IT or Web systems, complex and large-scale configurations have to be handled. In these fields, the strong domain orientation leads to the need to manage interrelated SPLs and multiple instances of configured sub-products, resulting in complex configurations(More)
Managing continuous change in a <i>Software Product Line</i> (SPL) is one of the challenges now faced by the SPL engineering community. On the one hand, the SPL paradigm captures the intrinsic variability of a software based on a systemic vision of the software to model. On the other hand, Agile Software Development advocates the incremental development of(More)
As Software Product Lines (SPL) are inevitably moving towards a multiple form to tackle issues of reuse and complexity, variability management across the composed SPLs is still addressed with basic inter-constraints. Based on two disjoint case studies (digital signage and cloud computing), we identified this challenging problem for the SPL community. In(More)
With the advent of Web 2.0, the growth of developer teams and user communities increases the number of software ecosystems: software platforms developed and maintained in a decentralized way by external contributors. As complexity grows, these large software systems become more and more complex to manage and to adapt to specific user needs. In this paper,(More)
In Software Product Line (SPL) engineering, Feature Models (FMs) are widely used to capture and manage variability in a sound and organized fashion. Though semantics, notations and reasoning support are well established, maintaining large FMs is still an open problem. As large FMs naturally contain different concerns, some related to domains, others being(More)
Teaching software engineering is an activity that needs to constantly evolve to cope with new paradigms, principles and techniques. In this paper, we briefly report on several years of experience in teaching both generative techniques in a model-driven engineering context and variability modeling related to software-product line engineering. Our current(More)
Software Product Lines (SPL) allows to build software at lower cost by reusing domain-specific software assets [5]. These artifacts are both common and variant parts of a software family. Variability is usually managed considering all software variants come from the same root. However, building software by assembling external components from different(More)
