A Metric For The Activeness Of An Object-Oriented Component Library
Source: Cornell University
In this paper, an attempt has been made to analyze the Activeness of an Object Oriented Component Library (OOCL) and develop a special type of software metric called Component Activeness Quotient(CAQ) which is defined as the degree of readiness of an OOCL. The advantages of the CAQ include a possible comparison between various OOCL's leading to selection of the best OOCL for use during the development task, and Stability of the software can be gauged as indicated by the value of the CAQ. The disadvantage of the CAQ is that it may have some error because of its subjective and random nature.
