This is a workshop poster submission.
Abstract of the workshop:
With the introduction of software product line approaches into the practice, variants and variability add a new dimension of complexity to the software development process. The combinatorial explosion of possible variants in systems with a high degree of variability requires improved and changed concepts for specifying, modeling, and implementing these systems to assure quality and functionality.
Current OO technologies and standardized design languages fall short in offering appropriate support for designing and implementing variabilities. Additionally the integration of design tools and implementation technologies concerning variants is still poor.
The main goal is to discuss and identify efficient ways for dealing with highly variable software systems on design and code level by evaluating existing approaches and new ideas from the research community and industrial practice
