Abstract
Software vendors often need to vary their products to satisfy customer-specific requirements. In many cases, existing code is reused and adapted to the new project needs. This copy&paste course of action leads a multiproduct code-base that is hard to maintain. Software Product Lines (SPL) emerged as an appropriate concept to manage product families with common functionality and code bases. Evolutionary SPLs, with a product-first-approach and an exposed product line, provide advantages such as a reduced time-to-market and SPLs based on evaluated and proven products.
