Visualization Support for Software Product Line Modeling


Stoiber, R; Reinhard, T; Glinz, M (2008). Visualization Support for Software Product Line Modeling. In: 2nd International Workshop on Visualization in Software Product Line Engineering, Limerick, Ireland, 8 September 2008 - 12 September 2008, 313-322.

Abstract

Product derivation from a product line model is a central activity in product line requirements engineering. A product line framework and/or approach should provide sophisticated visualization and product derivation support, otherwise large product lines become very hard to handle. In this paper we first present how we can benefit from existing single-system visualization techniques in product lines. Then we introduce new visualization aids and concepts that support the analysis of variability and the derivation of products in software product line engineering. We expect that these new visual support mechanisms will significantly ease the work of stakeholders and requirements engineers when negotiating a new product based on a software product line.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
