Efforts for software evolution supersede any other part of the software life cycle. Technological decisions have a major impact on the maintainability, but are not well reflected by existing code or architecture based metrics. The way the persistency of object structures with relational databases is solved affects the maintainability of the overall system. Besides maintainability other quality attributes of the software are of interest, in particular performance metrics. However, a systematic… CONTINUE READING
