Abstract:

A software metric is a tool that should be used in the development of quality software. The properties that define good software vary but encompass reliability, complexity, efficiency, testability, understand-ability, and modifiability. The Henry metric measures the complexity of data flow within a module and the complexity of intermodule communication. This thesis is an extension of a previous thesis titled AdaMeasure that calculated the Halstead metric. The present design and implementation is a tool that computes the Halstead and Henry metrics of Ada programs. Keywords Ada Programming language, Data flow complexity, Henry metric, Halstead metric.
