Abstract

Weyuker properties have been suggested as a guiding tool in identification of a good and comprehensive complexity measure by several researchers. Weyuker’s proposed nine properties to evaluate complexity measure for traditional programming. However, they are extensively used for evaluating object-oriented (OO) metrics, although the object-oriented features are entirely different in nature. In this paper, two recently reported OO metrics were evaluated and, based on it; the usefulness and relevance of these properties for evaluation purpose for object-oriented systems is discussed.

Key words

software complexity measures; weyuker's properties; evaluation criteria; object oriented metrics
