Software Metrics and the Object-Oriented Paradigm
1990) Software Metrics and the Object-Oriented Paradigm. Technical Report TR-90-55, Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. (
Software metrics are in use to guide current software development practices. As commercial organizations make use of the benefits of the object-oriented paradigm, the desire to apply metrics to that paradigm has logically followed. However, standard procedural metrics are limited in their ability to describe true object-oriented designs and code, and in some aspects fail outright. This paper describes the difficulties in applying standard metrics to object-oriented code and defines a set of metrics which are specifically geared toward the features which make the object-oriented approach unique.
