During the evolution of object-oriented systems, the preservation of correct design should be a permanent quest. However, for systems involving a large number of classes and subject to frequent modifications, detection and correction of design flaws may be a complex and resource-consuming task. The use of automatic detection and correction tools can be helpful for this task. Various work propose transformations that improve the quality of an object-oriented system while preserving its behavior.
more &raquo; ... In this paper we propose to investigate whether some objectoriented metrics can be used as indicators for automatically detecting situations where a particular transformation can be applied to improve the quality of a system. The detection process is based on analyzing the impact of various transformations on these object-oriented metrics using quality estimation models. Related work Related work cuts across several research areas and particularly object-oriented software reengineering and OO quality estimation. For the case of OO software, Basili & al. show in [1] that most of the metrics proposed by Chidamber and Kemerer in [3] are useful to predict fault-
