Abstract. Feature-oriented programming (FOP) is an extension of ob-
ject-oriented programming to support software variability by refining
existing classes and methods. In order to increase the reliability of all
implemented program variants, we integrate design by contract (DbC)
with FOP. DbC is an approach to build reliable object-oriented soft-
ware by specifying methods with contracts. Contracts are annotations
