A growing body of litterature suggests that there is an potcial size software components. This means that components that are too small or too big will have a higher defect content (i.e., there is a U-shaped cureve relating defect content to size). The U-shaped curve has become known as the "Goldilocks Conjecture." Recently, a cognitive theory has been proposed to explain this phenomenon and its has been expended to characterize ogject-oriented software. This conjecture has wide implications for software engineering practice. Its suggests 1) that designers should deliberately strive to design classes that should not be exceeded to ensure fewer faults in the software. The purpose of the current papar is to evaluate this conjecture for object-oriented systems. We first demonstrate that the claims of an optimal component/class size (1) above) and of smaller components/classes having a grester defect content (2) above) are due to a mathematical artifact in the analyses performed previously. We then empirucally test tge treshold effect claims of this conjecture (3) above). To our knowledge, the empirical test of size threshold effects for object-oriented systems has not been performed thus far. We performed an initial study with an industrial C++ system and repeated it twice on another C++ system and on a comercial Java application. ou results provide unambiguous evidence that there is non threschold effect of class size. We obtained the same result for three systems using four different size measures. These finding suggest that there is a simple continous relationship betwwen class size and faults, and that, optimal calsse size, smaller are better and threshold effects conjectures have no sound theoretical nor empirical basis.
In (Godin et al., 1995a) we proposed an incremental conceptual clustering algorithm, derived from lattice theory (Godin et al., 1995b), which is fast to compute (Mineau & Godin, 1995). This algorithm is especially useful when dealing with large data or knowledge bases, making classification structures1 available to large size applications like those found in industrial settings. However, in order to be applicable on large data sets, the analysis component of the algorithm had to be simplified: the thorough comparison of objects normally needed to fully justify the formation of classes had to be cut down. Of course, from less analysis results classes which carry less semantics, or which should not have been formed in the first place. Consequently, some classes are useless in terms of the information needs of the applications that will later on interact with the data. Pruning techniques are thus needed to eliminate these classes and simplify the classification structure. However, since these classification structures are huge, the pruning techniques themselves must be simple so that they can be applied in reasonable time on large classification structures. This paper presents three such techniques: one is based on the definition of constraints over the generalization language, the other two are based on discrimination metrics applied on links between classes or on the classes themselves. Because the first technique is applied before the classification structure is built, it is called a pre-pruning technique, while the other two are called postpruning techniques.

Managing the evolution of an OO system constitutes a complex and resource-consuming task. This is particularly true for reusable class libraries since the user interface must be preserved for version compatibility. Thus, the symptomatic detection of potential instabilities during the design phase of such libraries may help avoid later problems. This paper introduces a fuzzy logic-based approach for evaluating the stability of a reusable class library interface, using structural metrics as stability indicators. To evaluate this new approach, we conducted a preliminary study on a set of commercial C++ class libraries. The obtained results are very promising when compared to those of two classical machine learning approaches, top down induction of decision trees and Bayesian classifiers.

This work presents a technique to circumvent one of the major problems associated with building and applying techniques to build software quality estimation models, namely the use of precise metric thresholds values; we used a fuzzy binary decision tree to investigate the stability of a reusable class library interface, using structural metrics as stability indicators. To evaluate this new approach, we conducted a study on different versions of a commercial C++ class library. The obtained results are very promising when compared to those of two classical machine learning approaches, Top Down Induction of Decision Trees and Bayesian classifiers.
