A feature-oriented product line is a family of programs that share a common set of features. A feature implements a stakeholder’s requirement and represents a design decision or configuration option. When added to a program, a feature involves the introduction of new structures, such as classes and methods, and the refinement of existing ones, such as extending methods.
