  Fusion: A System For Business Users To Manage Program Variability
Weber S., Chan H., Degenaro L., Diament J., Fokoue-Nkoutche A., Rouvellou I. IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering 31(7): 570-587, 2005.  Type: Article

This paper deals with the problem of changing software application behavior without changing the code, but by customizing external business rules. The topic is very practical, since program maintainability costs much more than designin...
