Remote-component-based software systems (CBS) must provide high maintainability to support operation over long periods of time and correspond to changes in enterprise requirements/environments. Measurements of the degree of complexity of a system are one technique for evaluating maintainability. However, conventional complexity metrics are unable to reflect the overall complexity of the system, because they do not incorporate a procedure to account for characteristics of CBS. To help… CONTINUE READING
