It is a little over ten years sinc e Chidamber and Kemerer's obje ct-oriented (OO) metric suite which included the Lack of Cohesion Of Methods (LCOM) metric was rst proposed [9]. Despite considerable e ort both theoretically and empirically sinc e then, the softwar eengineering community is still no ne arer nding a generally ac cepte d de nition or me asure of OO cohesion. Y et,achieving highly cohesive software is a cornerstone of software comprehension and hence, maintainability. In this pap… CONTINUE READING
