Combined Reuse: Product Line Engineering Meets Service-Oriented Architecture
This presentation was created for the SATURN conference series and does not necessarily reflect the positions and views of the Software Engineering Institute.
In recent decades, reuse has been the holy grail of software engineering. Nearly every organization is searching for an effective way of achieving software reuse, but few succeed.
Today, service-oriented architecture (SOA) and product line engineering (PLE) are among the most promising and popular approaches to achieving reuse. However, these approaches are seldom used together. The European research project INDENICA seeks to develop approaches to use and adapt PLE for the SOA world. This presentation will give an overview of the INDENICA approaches developed so far and early results from the first case studies.
