Domain Feature Model Recovery from Multiple Applications Using Data Access Semantics and Formal Concept Analysis
Feature models are widely employed in domainspecific software development to specify the domain requirements with commonality and variability. A feature model is usually constructed by domain experts after comprehensive domain analysis. In this paper, we propose a method to recover an initial domain feature model from multiple existing domain applications using data access semantics and formal concept analysis (FCA). In the method, we first establish mappings among the database schemas of all the reference implementations. Then, we capture the data access semantics of each method in each reference implementation. Based on the pre-established data mapping, we can mix methods from different applications together and conduct formal concept analysis with the data access semantics as intention. After that, further concept merging/pruning and variability analysis are performed to produce the domain feature model. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of our method, we conduct a case study ...
