fmp: Feature Modeling Plug-in

The Feature Modeling Plug-in (fmp) is an Eclipse plug-in for editing and configuring feature models. Fmp can be used standalone in Eclipse or together with fmp2rsm plug-in in Rational Software Modeler (RSM) or Rational Software Architect (RSA). fmp2rsm integrates fmp with RSM and enables product line modeling in UML.

Fmp is an open-source project hosted on SourceForge.

Current Version: 0.6.6 - research prototype

Examples are attached to publications.

Project status: Completed
The project has been completed and the tool is no longer maintained. See Clafer for our current work on feature modeling.
