Current modeling languages provide surprisingly little, if any, support for product line development. They are either based on the code world using the semantically well-defined concepts of programming languages (e.g. UML, SA/SD) or based on an architectural view using a simple component-connector concept. In both cases, the languages themselves say nothing about a product family or its variants. This situation could be compared to that of a programmer being asked to write object-oriented programs where the language does not support any object-oriented concepts.
