Use cases are widely used in early software development phases such requirements analysis. In this paper, we investigate how use case similarity could impact the classes that implement them. We studied if the similarity of use cases could have impact on the lines of code shared between them and on metrics of classes that implement them, such as, coupling, cohesion and method complexity of classes. We also have successfully applied an automated approach to assess the similarity of use case names… CONTINUE READING
