2010 arXiv   pre-print
We have also proposed the design complexity of object-oriented software with Weighted Methods per Class metric (WMC-CK metric) expressed in terms of Shannon entropy, and error proneness.  ...  Recent research has shown some of the OO design metrics are useful for predicting fault-proneness of classes.  ...  We believe that this entropy degradation metric with OO design metrics thresholds may be useful in evaluating OO software, specifically large Java and C++ systems.  ...
