  • This paper aims at proposing a unified metrics suite that can be used to quantify different perspectives related to the code of JUnit test cases. We extended existing JUnit test case metrics by introducing two new metrics. We analyzed the code of JUnit test cases of two open source Java software systems (ANT and JFREECHART). We used in total five metrics. We used the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method in order: (1) to better understand the underlying orthogonal dimensions captured by the… CONTINUE READING
