Focusing on software productivity and software quality control has spurred the research on software metrics technology. The increasing importance being placed on object-oriented software development has led to the research on the object-oriented software metrics and the development of automated tools to support object-oriented metrics. To effectively aid the software evaluation, a software metrics tool is supposed to support the metrics model. The objective of Jade Bird object-oriented metrics tool (JBOOMT) is to provide an automated software metrics support for users and managers to measure the design or source code of the object-oriented program and thus evaluate the quality of the software according to the specified hierarchical metrics model. A mechanism is provided for metrics users to customize the preferred metrics model and browse the details of the metrics model. This article introduces the design of JBOOMT and discusses its implementation built in the Jade Bird program analysis system (JBPAS).
