Readability of OO example programs (Beauty and The Beast; SRES)

  • Pogje (executable jar-file)
    A program that computes various measurements for Java classes, among others average word length (AWL) and average sentence length (ASL) which are used to compute SRES (Software Readability Ease Score).
  • Nadeem Abbas’ Master thesis (pdf)
    This Master thesis describes the counting rules used in the computation of AWL and ASL. It also contains a brief user guide for Pogje. Please cite as Nadeem Abbas: Properties of ”Good” Java Examples. Master thesis. Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden. 2010.
  • List of example programs (pdf)
    A list of the example textbook programs that are used in several quality evaluations.

Role of method chains and comments in software readability and comprehension (experiment)

  • Code snippets (pdf)
