WEB TOOL FOR OBJECT ORIENTED DESIGN METRICS

José R. Hilera, Luis Fernández-Sanz, Marina Cabello

Abstract

An open source web application to calculate metrics from UML class diagrams is presented. The system can process any class diagram encoded in XMI format. After processing the XMI document, a complete report can be obtained in two different formats, HTML and spreadsheet file. The application can be accessed freely in a website. Source code is available for downloading.
