Quantitative Approaches in Object-Oriented Software Engineering
The QAOOSE’2003 workshop brought together, for a full day, researchers and practitioners working on several aspects related to quantitative evaluation of software artifacts developed with the object-oriented paradigm. Ideas and experiences where shared and discussed. This report includes a summary of the technical presentations and subsequent discussions raised by them. Eleven out of twelve submitted position papers were presented, covering different aspects such as metrics formalization, new metrics (for coupling, cohesion, constraints or dynamic behavior) or metrics validation, to name a few. In the closing session the participants were able to discuss open issues and challenges arising from researching in this area, as well as they tried to forecast which will be the hot topics for research in the short to medium term.
