Computing Metrics

Computing POM metrics using PADL is made easy by the helper class pom.helper.MetricsGenerator. After having installed CPL, PADL, and POM, just go into the POM Tests project and have a look at this class. It provides a main method with snippets of code to call one of the three methods:

  • computeMetricsFromDirectory
  • computeMetricsFromEclipse
  • computeMetricsFromJARs

which can be used to compute automatically metrics from various input sources. Also have a look at the constant array listing the metrics that must be computed or avoided: METRICS_TO_AVOID and METRICS_TO_COMPUTE.
