Chapter 14. Electronic Commerce Software Product Line Case Study

The electronic commerce software product line case study is a highly distributed World Wide Web–based product line that handles business-to-business (B2B) as well as business-to-consumer (B2C) systems. Because there are two main systems—B2B and B2C—the reverse evolutionary engineering strategy is applied first to each type of system, from which the product line commonality is determined, followed by the product line variability. The solution uses software agents as intermediaries between user interface clients and servers. In addition, object brokers provide a standardized interface to several heterogeneous legacy databases.

The problem is described in Section 14.1. Section 14.2
