General description

Name: OOPMetrics
Submitted by: IonelVirgilPop
Also Known As:
Intent: To represent software metrics especially for the purpose of detecting design-flaws in software systems based on these metrics. This is useful for re-engineering the software system.

Software Metrics

Competency Questions:
  • What are the software metrics for a particular project/package/class/method?

Knowing the software metrics

  • is there a design-flaw in the software system?
Solution description: This is an ontology pattern that represents software metrics for OOP.
Reusable OWL Building Block: (1110)
Consequences: Software anti-patterns (design-flaws) can be detected based on software metrics by using this ontology pattern.
Scenarios: Find if a class is a God Class based on it's metrics

The OOPMetrics Content OP locally defines the following ontology elements:

ObjectProperty hasClass (owl:ObjectProperty) Refers to an OOPClass from an OOPPackage.

Se refera la o OOPClass dintr-un OOPPackage.

hasClass page
ObjectProperty hasMethod (owl:ObjectProperty) Refers to an OOPMethod from an OOPClass.

Se refera la o OOPMethod dintr-o OOPClass.

hasMethod page
ObjectProperty hasMetric (owl:ObjectProperty) Refers to a software metric that an OOPProject/OOPPackage/OOPClass/OOPMethod has.

Se refera la o metrica soft pe care o are un/o OOPProject/OOPPackage/OOPClass/ OOPMethod.

hasMetric page
ObjectProperty hasPackage (owl:ObjectProperty) Refers to an OOPPackage from an OOPProject.

Se refera la un OOPPackage dintr-un OOPProject.

hasPackage page
DatatypeProperty hasFloatValue (owl:DatatypeProperty) The real value of the software metric.

Valoarea reala pentru metrica soft.

hasFloatValue page
DatatypeProperty hasIntegerValue (owl:DatatypeProperty) The integer value of the software metric.

Valoarea intreaga pentru metrica soft.

hasIntegerValue page
DatatypeProperty hasName (owl:DatatypeProperty) This represents the name (more precisely the acronym) of the category of software metric. Such as: "WMC" for "Weighted Methods Count", TCC for "Tight Class Cohesion", etc.

Aceasta reprezinta numele (mai precis acronimul) pentru categoria de metrica soft. Cum ar fi: "WMC" pentru "Weighted Methods Count", TCC pentru "Tight Class Cohesion", etc.

hasName page
Class OOPClass (owl:Class) This represents the "class" concept from object-oriented programming.

Aceasta reprezinta conceptul "clasa" din programarea orientata obiect.

OOPClass page
Class OOPMethod (owl:Class) This represents the "method" concept from object-oriented programming.

Aceasta reprezinta conceptul "metoda" din programarea orientata obiect.

OOPMethod page
Class OOPMetric (owl:Class) This represents a software metric specific to object-oriented programming.

Aceasta reprezinta o metrica soft specifica programarii orientate obiect.

OOPMetric page
Class OOPPackage (owl:Class) This represents the "package" concept from object-oriented programming.

Aceasta reprezinta conceptul "pachet" din programarea orientata obiect.

OOPPackage page
Class OOPProject (owl:Class) This represents a software project.

Aceasta reprezinta un proiect soft.
