Review of Software Quality Metrics for Object-Oriented Methodology
This paper presents a review of metrics used in object-oriented programming, it includes a small set of the most well-known and commonly applied traditional metrics which could be applied to object-oriented methodology and a set object-oriented metrics (specifically applicable to object-oriented programming) for software development. The need for such metrics is notably more when an organization is keen on adopting such metrics to develop good quality software. The demand has increased for new or improved metrics for software development and the most prominent being object-oriented methodology.
