Overview This book describes an evolutionary software engineering process for the development of software product lines, which uses the Unified Modeling Language (UML) notation. A software product line (or product family) consists of a family of software systems that have some common functionality and some variable functionality. The interest in software product lines emerged from the field of software reuse when developers and managers realized that they could obtain much greater reuse benefits by reusing software architectures instead of reusing individual software components. The field of software product lines is increasingly recognized in industry and government as being of great strategic importance for software development. Studies indicate that if three or more systems with a degree of common functionality are to be developed, then developing a product line is significantly more cost-effective than developing each system from scratch. The traditional mode of software...
