Overall Software Quality Rating: High (from Maintainability & Usability perspective)
We reviewed JActor (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jactor/ ) in our software quality lab. Following is the overall structure of the software:
The evaluation was done using manual and automated techniques. We were able to get findings related with following software quality characteristics:
Maintainability: As per the available data, this has been measured in terms of duplications, and rules compliance. Ideally, test coverage would also have helped to determine the testability of the code.
Our rating: High Maintainability
Refer to the data below retrieved from Sonar code analysis:
Note the duplications value of 0.4%. This is outstanding. Also, there were no blocker or critical rules violations.
Usability: This has been measured in terms of McCabe code complexity and documentation and rated accordingly.
Our rating: High Usability
Note the code complexity to be very low in terms of methods as well as class. This indicates that code is easy to read, understand and learn. Also, the code has decent documentation of 48%.
Overall rating: JActor can be rated as software of high quality keeping into account quality characteristics such as maintainability and usability. That said, we have not evaluated from functionality perspective and could not comment on that regard.
