Our previous work presented the Evolving Intentions framework, which specified how evolving qualitative goal models can be modeled and analyzed. Recent improvements to the framework allow for precise semantics of goal relationships with propagation of both evidence for and evidence against a goal's satisfaction (as in Tropos), and enables evaluation of evolution with absolute time (in addition to relative time). The reasoning is expressed as a constraint satisfaction problem. In this paper, we present BloomingLeaf, a new web-based tool that implements the new semantics. We showcase how the implementation and architecture of BloomingLeaf can be used to answer time-based questions.
