We can evaluate software architecture quality using a plethora of metrics proposed in the literature, but interpreting and exploiting in the right way these metrics is not always a simple task. This is true for both fixing the right metric threshold values and determining the actions to be taken to improve the quality of the system. Instead of metrics, we can detect code or architectural anomalies that give us useful hints on the possible architecture degradation. In this paper, we focus our… CONTINUE READING
