  1. Serge Demeyer and Stéphane Ducasse. Metrics, Do They Really Help?. In Jacques Malenfant (Ed.), Proceedings of Languages et Modèles à Objets (LMO'99), p. 69—82, HERMES Science Publications, Paris, 1999. 

    Maturing a well designed framework requires a set of software metrics to steer the iterative development process. Based on a case study of the VisualWorks/Smalltalk framework for user-interface building, we conclude that today's size and inheritance metrics are not reliable to detect problems but are useful in measuring stability. We expect that this work will contribute to the application of metrics as a project management tool.
