Combined Reuse: Product Line Engineering Meets Service-Oriented Architecture

May 2012 Presentation
Georg Leyh (Siemens AG)

A presentation from the Large Scale track at SATURN 2012, May 7-11, 2012, St Petersburg, FL.


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.
