FORMS: Feature-Oriented Reverse Engineering-based Middleware Specialization for Product-Lines

Supporting the varied software feature requirements of multiple variants of a software product-line while promoting reuse, forces product line engineers to use general-purpose and feature-rich middleware platforms. However, each product variant now incurs memory footprint and performance overhead due to the feature-richness of the middleware along with the increased cost of its testing and maintenance. To address this tension, this paper presents FORMS (Feature-Oriented Reverse Engineering for Middleware Specialization), which is a framework to automatically specialize general-purpose middleware for product-line variants.
