MAE: A Syntactic Metric Analysis Environmen
Journal of Systems and Software (1988)
  • Warren Harrison, Portland State University

A metric analysis environment for the COBOL programming language is presented that, through the use of a commercial data base management system (DBMS), accesses a set of files produced by a static analysis tool. The query language of the host DBMS can then be used to easily implement various metric mappings. Such an approach provides an amazingly flexible source of data for software metric analysis.
