Extended Metric of Cognitive Weighted Coupling on Method Call

Authors(3) :-K. R. Martin, Dr. E. Kirubakaran, Dr. E. George Dharma Prakash Raj

Aspect Oriented Software Development is a innovative and emergent paradigm, which supports the separation of concerns that are speckled over the system. Software metrics are used in measuring desirable software and software development characteristics of Aspect Oriented Software Development (AOSD). The maintenance cost can be precise if software metrics is applied during the development phase (Chidamber, 1994). As Aspect Oriented Software Development is an evolving paradigm a study on maintainability and its accompanying metrics need to be exactly accomplished. This paper presents a new cognitive complexity metric namely cognitive weighted coupling between objects for measuring coupling in Aspect Oriented Software.
