Conceptual and Semantic Measures for Cohesion in Software Maintenance
In software maintenance, cohesion plays very major role to determine the relationship among different software attributes such as class, method, function-type etc. There are many method have been used in this context such as method based on syntactically keyword count in source code. The authors have used the semantic value computation for the specific keyword occurs in distinct common method within the different classes for an open source code project. They have also computed the conceptual relation metric to analysis the cohesion for the method within their class. Also, there is comparison between different semantic values for the keyword of common method in this context.
