We start the academic posts series with the glossary of terms of the methodology.

AOP

Different aspects, such as security, accounting log, notifications, etc. can be defined in isolated areas. The final comprehensive behavior of the system would be obtained using a weaving process.

FM
Feature Model. Model to represent the communes and optional parts that can have a product of a product line. Used in PLE.

LW
Language Workbench. Tool that allows defining and using formal languages: abstract and concrete syntax and static and dynamic semantics. It could be consider as a tool for designing the language, the compiler and the IDE.
MDA
Model Driven Architecture. OMG standard for software development based on model. It can be considered as a particular case of MDSD.
MDSD
Model-driven Software Development. Programming paradigm focused on software development at the level of the models.
Meta-model
Rules, buildings, relationships, etc. that define the models that can build in a given domain.
PLE
Product Line Engineering. Discipline for the creation of software through product lines (SPL).
