Owing to its relative simplicity and wide range of applications , static slices are specifically proposed for software maintenance and program understanding. Unfortunately, in many cases static slices are overly conservative and therefore too large to supply useful information to the software maintainer. Dynamic slicing methods can produce more precise(More)
Measuring source code maintainability has always been a challenge for software engineers. To address this problem, a number of metrics-based quality models have been proposed by researchers. Besides expressing source code maintainability in terms of numerical values, these models are also expected to provide explicable results, i.e. to give a detailed list(More)
Different program slicing methods are used for debugging, testing, reverse engineering and maintenance. Slicing algorithms can be classified as a static slicing or dynamic slicing type. In applications such as debugging the computation of dynamic slices is more preferable since it can produce more precise results. In a recent paper [5] a new so-called "(More)
Software erosion is a well-known phenomena, meaning that software quality is continuously decreasing due to the ever-ongoing modifications in the source code. In this research work we investigated this phenomena by studying the impact of version control commit operations (add, update, delete) on the quality of the code. We calculated the ISO/IEC 9126(More)
In this study we present how some version control history based metrics affect maintainability of the source code. These metrics cover intensity of modifications, code ownership and code aging. We determine the order of source files based on each analyzed metrics, and compare it with their maintainability based order. As a cross-check we perform a(More)
