Abstract

A Software Product Line (SPL) is a family of similar programs generated from a common artifact base. A Multi SPL (MPL) is a set of interdependent SPLs that are typically managed and developed in a decentralized fashion. Delta-Oriented Programming (DOP) is a flexible and modular approach to implement SPLs. This paper presents new concepts that extend DOP to support the implementation of MPLs. These extensions aim to accommodate compositional analyses. They are presented by means of a core calculus for delta-oriented MPLs of Java programs. Suitability for MPL compositional analyses is demonstrated by compositional reuse of existing SPL analysis techniques.
