2009 Proceedings of the 7th joint meeting of the European software engineering conference and the ACM SIGSOFT symposium on The foundations of software engineering on European software engineering conference and foundations of software engineering symposium - ESEC/FSE '09  
By analyzing 35 large Open Source Java projects, we find that in the majority of the projects more than half of the dependencies are never involved in change propagation.  ...  In this paper we investigate the relationship between class dependency and change propagation in Java software.  ...  In this paper we answer these questions by contrasting the dependency structure of 35 large Java projects with their change dynamics.  ...

Impact of Historical Software Metric Changes in Predicting Future Maintainability Trends in Open-Source Software Development

Mitja Gradišnik, Tina Beranič, Sašo Karakatič
2020 Applied Sciences  
The maintainability prediction models were built based on software metric measurements obtained from real-world open-source software projects.  ...  Software maintenance is one of the key stages in the software lifecycle and it includes a variety of activities that consume the significant portion of the costs of a software project.  ...  Instead, the dynamics of software maintainability change in a software product is assessed through a temporal perspective.  ...
