Behavioral Dependency Measurement for Change-Proneness Prediction in UML 2.0 Design Models
During the development and maintenance of ObjectOriented (OO) software, the information on the classes which are more prone to be changed is very useful. Developers and maintainers can make a more flexible software by modifying the part of classes which are sensitive to changes. Traditionally, most change-proneness prediction has been studied based on source codes. However, change-proneness prediction in the early phase of software development can provide an easier way for developing a stable software by modifying the current design or choosing alternative designs before implementation. To address this need, we present a systematic method for calculating the Behavioral Dependency Measure (BDM) which helps to predict change-proneness in UML 2.0 models. The proposed measure has been evaluated on a multi-version medium size open-source project namely JFreeChart. The obtained results show that the BDM is an useful indicator and can be complementary to existing OO metrics for change-prone...
