Integrating Software Metrics with UML Class Diagrams

Software measurement tools have been used to support quality assurance through the development cycle with an increasing popularity recently. However, understanding the results of these tools still is a big problem. They generally present plyometric views which are too complex and hard to comment on. In this study, a software tool was developed to present metrics in UML class diagrams. Colors of traffic lights are used to colorize the status of units in classes. Status is determined by techniques called limit and point approaches. Tool includes common structured and class based complexity metrics and only parses C# grammar presently.
