Natures and Perspectives


“Nature” and “Perspective” have similar meaning for Eclipse developers and for personnel in a software product line organization. The nature of product line work differs from one part of the organization to another. A developer using Eclipse switches among perspectives to have ready access to the specific tools needed for the nature of the current work such as testing, modeling, or plug-in development. The product line developer has many reasons to switch among different perspectives on the product line. In this issue of Strategic Software Engineering I will explore the fundamental natures in a product line organization and the perspectives required for the success of a software development organization.
