The pure::variants family consists of several products, each matching the needs of specific user groups. The main pure::variants products (Community, Professional, Enterprise) are for use in all development phase. The pure::variants Feature Modeler products provide rich modeling in the problem domain.

The following sections describe the main products in more detail.

pure::variants Community

The pure::variants Community Edition permits first steps into the world of software product lines with no cost for personal and non commercial uses. It includes all main features of pure::variants. Only advanced feature like the extensibility interface and support for larger models are not available. It supports creation, management and evaluation of all necessary models and uses XML based data formats for model storage.

The Community Edition is available as a plug-in for the OpenSource Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is about to become the de facto standard cross-platform development tool. Since pure::variants supports the extensibility of Eclipse, customers can easily perform functional enhancements and appearance changes if required.

pure::variants Professional

pure::variants Professional targets at individual developers as well as small to medium sized developer teams. It supports creation, management and evaluation of all necessary models and uses XML based data formats for model storage. That allows the exchange with standardized data formats as XMI, MSR-SW, MSR-FR.

Because of its flexibility and ability to be customized pure::variants Professional integrates smoothly into existing development tools. Rather than replacing these tools it enhances them by performing variant management. This saves investment costs and increases productivity.

pure::variants Enterprise

pure::variants Enterprise provides additionally to all functionalities of pure::variants Professional centralized server-based model management with concurrent access from remote clients. The user interface is identical to pure::variants Professional, thus migration is simple. pure::variants Enterprise offers role-based access control for server-side projects. Also included is the Connector for BIRT, enabling organisations to create report documents for online and offline usage from pure::variants models and other data sources.
