During the last decade, software product lines have increasingly received attention as they promise to significantly improve the productivity of the software development process and so to reduce both the cost and time of developing and maintaining software systems. In order to achieve the promised improvements, however, a high level of quality of the components reused in the various product line members is required. Therefore, more than for traditional software development, testing as still the most prevalent approach for ensuring quality becomes a very crucial part of every product line effort. Nevertheless, research in the field of testing reusable components and software product lines is still in a very early phase and there is actually little guidance for product line organizations on how to systematically test their product lines yet. This paper discusses what the challenges in testing software product lines are and outlines an approach that enables to test product lines more effectively and efficiently.
