Delta-Oriented Programming of Software Product Lines
Feature-oriented programming (FOP) implements software product lines by composition of feature modules. It relies on the principles of stepwise development. Feature modules are intended to refer to exactly one product feature and can only extend existing implementations. To provide more flexibility for implementing software product lines, we propose delta-oriented programming (DOP) as a novel programming language approach. A product line is represented by a core module and a set of delta modules. The core module provides an implementation of a valid product that can be developed with well-established single application engineering techniques. Delta modules specify changes to be applied to the core module to implement further products by adding, modifying and removing code. Application conditions attached to delta modules allow handling combinations of features explicitly. A product implementation for a particular feature configuration is generated by applying incrementally all delta mo...
