In most cases, adaptation is required to make existing components suitable to the context defined by a product line architecture. This paper presents experience on analyzing the product line adequacy of an existing component in an industrial context. Product line adequacy is based on the results of the application of diverse reverse engineering techniques (architecture evaluation, clone detection, code metrics, and source code analysis). The paper presents these activities, their results, and the action items derived to integrate the component into the product line context.
