There have been several proposals to describe the variability of software product lines by using modeling languages. In larger organizations or projects (e.g., multi product line environments) this can lead to a situation where multiple variability modeling techniques are used simultaneously. Rather than enforcing a single modeling language, we present an integrative infrastructure that provides a unified perspective for users configuring products in such multi product line environments, regardless of the different modeling methods and tools used internally. In this tool demonstration paper, we present a prototypical implementation of our framework based on Web services. So far, the prototype has been used with a feature-based, an OVM-style and a decision-oriented variability modeling approach.
