ABSTRACT
Software product lines can be implemented with many different
approaches. However, there are common underlying mechanisms
which allow a classification into compositional and annotative ap-
proaches. While research focuses mainly on composition approaches
like aspect- or feature-oriented programming because those sup-
port feature traceability and modularity, in practice annotative ap-
proaches like preprocessors are common as they are easier to adopt.
In this paper, we compare both groups of approaches and find com-
plementary strengths. We propose an integration of compositional
