Item description for Software Product Line Engineering: Foundations, Principles and Techniques by Klaus Pohl, Gunter Bockle & Frank Van Der Linden...

This textbook addresses students, professionals, lecturers and researchers interested in software product line engineering. With more than 100 examples and about 150 illustrations, the authors describe in detail the essential foundations, principles and techniques of software product line engineering.

The authors are professionals and researchers who significantly influenced the software product line engineering paradigm and successfully applied software product line engineering principles in industry. They have structured this textbook around a comprehensive product line framework.

Software product line engineering has proven to be the paradigm for developing a diversity of software products and software-intensive systems in shorter time, at lower cost, and with higher quality. It facilitates platform-based development and mass customisation. The authors elaborate on the two key principles behind software product line engineering: (1) the separation of software development in two distinct processes, domain and application engineering; (2) the explicit definition and management of the variability of the product line across all development artefacts.

As a student, you will find a detailed description of the key processes, their activities and underlying techniques for defining and managing software product line artefacts. As a researcher or lecturer, you will find a comprehensive discussion of the state of the art organised around the comprehensive framework. As a professional, you will find guidelines for introducing this paradigm in your company and an overview of industrial experiences with software product line engineering.

Reviews - What do customers think about Software Product Line Engineering: Foundations, Principles and Techniques?

For the classroom only...  Nov 29, 2005
This book is an excellent classroom book, but not practical for PLE in the field. It does an excellent job of laying out a framework for a PLE process and it does an excellent job of teaching variability. The main problem with the book is that it uses the Orthogonal Variability Model to trace the variability in the project's artifacts, and there are no tools to support an Orthogonal Variability Model. It is a perfect way to teach variability, and the Orthogonal Variability Model works well in a text book context, but would not be practical on a real project.

The book makes reference to SEGOS-VM Tool, which is being developed to support the authors Orthogonal Variability Model, but it is no where to be found on the web.

So I would suggest this book only if you are interested in becoming "book smart" about PLE, it does do an excellent job of teaching the topic, but it's process holds little value for real projects.
