UNDERSTANDING PRODUCT LINES THROUGH DESIGN PATTERNS

Daniel Cabrero, Javier Garzás, Mario Piattini

Abstract

Many proposals concerning design and implementation of Software Product Lines have been studied in the last few years. This work points out how and why different Design Patterns are used in the context of Product Lines. This will be achieved by reviewing how often those patterns appear in different proposed solutions and research papers for Product Lines for a given set of sources. This information will help us identify which specific problems need to be solved in the context of Product Lines. In addition, we will discuss how this information can be useful to identify gaps in new research.
