In previous work, Rajan and Leavens presented the design of Ptolemy, a language which incorporates the notion of quantified, typed events for improved separation of concerns. In this paper, the authors present an empirical study to evaluate the effectiveness of Ptolemy's design by applying it to a series of architectural releases of a Software Product Line (SPL) for handling multimedia on mobile devices, called MobileMedia, and the comparison and contrast of their findings with a previous in-depth analysis by Figueiredo et al of the object-oriented and aspect-oriented designs of the same system.
