Abstract

This paper explains the metrics for the computation of class dependencies and introduces new metrics for the computation of message dependencies in system designs and programs. The metrics are used in the design-coding cycle of software production. The metrics define and validate the quality of an architectural solution. The architecture framework assumed in this paper is called BCEMD (Boundary-Control-Entity-Mediator-DBInterface). The paper demonstrates how the BCEMD framework minimizes object dependencies in synchronous message passing. We compute message dependencies from a parsed byte code and can present the metrics as notes on a UML class diagram reverse-engineered from the code.
