TOWARDS A ‘UNIVERSAL’ SOFTWARE METRICS TOOL - Motivation, Process and a Prototype

Gordana Rakić, Zoran Budimac, Klaus Bothe

Abstract

In this paper we investigate main limitations of actual software metrics techniques/tools, propose a unified intermediate representation for calculation of software metrics, and describe a promising prototype of a new metrics tool. The motivation was the evident lack of wider utilization of software metrics in raising the quality of software products.
