During the last years Feature Modeling has become the "standard" for variability management in the field of Software Product Lines. Feature Models are easy to understand and provide a generic way to represent variability information, independent of a specific application domain. A brief description of feature models can be found at Wikipedia
The EMF Feature Model project will define a standard representation of Feature Models inside the Eclipse platform. The intent is to provide a uniform representation for variability information for tools based on the Eclipse Modeling Framework. This will allow easy and consistent access to variability-related information, such as variation points and variant decisions, in DSLs, M2M transformations, and other contexts where variability information is produced or consumed.
The objectives of the EMF Feature Model project are the following:
Define Feature Meta Model
Provide a graphical Feature Diagram Editor
Define an extensible Evaluation Engine Framework and provide an exemplary engine implementation
Provide extensible Editors and Visualizations for the EMF Feature Models.
