There is nowadays a wide recognition that low coupling is a main tenet in the measurement of high-quality modular software. In fact, coupling is one of the few internal software attributes that has been both theoretically and empirically shown to have a large impact on a variety of external software qualities, such as reusability, maintainability, evolvability and testability. Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) is an emerging technique that advocates enhanced modularization of certain widely… CONTINUE READING
