Welcome to S.P.L.O.T.

Welcome to the SPLOT project's website. The primary goal of SPLOT is to put Software Product Lines research into practice through the delivery of state-of-the-art online tools targeting academics and practitioners in the field. With SPLOT you can edit, debug, analyze, configure, share and download feature models instantly.

We have tested SPLOT on the following Internet browsers (Windows): Safari (4.0.3), Mozilla (3.0.11), Google Chrome (2.0.172) and Microsoft IE (8.0). Safari has proven to be the fastest browser (as claimed by Apple) followed by Google's browser, Mozilla, and MIE.

Please, let us know if you encountered any problems using SPLOT on other platforms and/or browsers. We value your feedback a lot!
