Software variability modeling is a complex task. To manage this complexity, we introduce an approach called Svamp. The main contribution of Svamp is to model concepts through ontologies and offer tool support for capturing functional and quality variability in software product family architectures. Variability description languages are defined by different ontologies that provide meta-models. For structural and functional descriptions, the concepts, properties, and rules are defined by Kumbang ontology. Quality Attribute ontology defines the domain knowledge of a specific quality attribute, while Quality Variability ontology provides the concepts and rules related to quality variation. The approach is exemplified by our integrated tool suite, provided as a plug-in for the Eclipse platform.
