  • % of the systems with statistically significant correlation between the corresponding indices at the 0.05 levelKendall correlation (rank based)
  • Transcript

    • 1. Metrics are usually computed at a low level: classes, methods, …/ W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 0
    • 2. Multitude of data values obscures a general picture of the system maintainability/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 1
    • 3. That we are actually interested in!/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 2
    • 4. You Cant Control the Unfamiliar:A Study on the RelationsBetween AggregationTechniques for Software Metrics Bogdan Vasilescu Alexander Serebrenik Mark van den Brand
    • 5. Two kinds of aggregationSame metrics, different Same artifact, differentartifacts metrics/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 4
    • 6. Various techniques can be found in the literatureSame metrics, different Traditional: mean,artifacts median, sum, … Econometric inequality indices: Gini, Theil, Hoover, Kolm, Atkinson/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 5
    • 7. Various techniques can be found in the literatureSame metrics, different Traditional: mean,artifacts median, sum, … Which aggregation Econometric technique inequality indices: Gini, Theil, Hoover, should we Kolm, Atkinson use?/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 6
    • 8. Questions 1. Which and to what extent do the different aggregation techniques agree? 2. What is the nature of the relation between the various aggregation techniques? 3. How does the correlation coefficient change as the systems evolve?/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 7
    • 9. Qualitas Corpus 20101126 • Qualitas Corpus 20101126r, 106 systems • FitJava v1.1, 2 packages, 2240 SLOC • NetBeans v6.9.1, 3373 packages 1890536 SLOC./W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 8
    • 10. 1) Agreement between diff techniques • Agreement: • Aggregation: Class SLOC  Package • Techniques agree if they rank the packages similarly We use rank-based correlation coefficient: Kendall’s /W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 9
    • 11. 1) Agreement: different inequality indices? • Gini, Theil, Hoover, Atkinson – agree • aggregates obtained convey the same information • Kolm does not!/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 10
    • 12. 1) Agreement: traditional and ineq indices? • mean • Kolm: strong (0,8) and statistically significant (92%) • median, standard deviation, and variance • sum • does not correlate with any other aggregation technique/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 11
    • 13. 2) Nature of the relation: Typical patterns • Theil is known to be more • Linear relation with a “fat” sensitive to the rich head • Theil increases faster when Gini increases/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 12
    • 14. Which aggregation technique? (1) • Theil, Hoover, Gini and Atkinson agree • Any can be chosen from the correlation point of view • Some might be “better” in each specific case • easy to interpret: Gini  [0,1] • provide additional insights: Theil (explanation) • negative values: Gini, Hoover − affects the domain! • sensitive for high values: Theil, Atkinson • deviations from uniformity: Gini, Hoover/ W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 13
    • 15. Which aggregation technique? (2) • Kolm and mean agree • Kolm is reliable for skewed distributions − better alternative (“by no means”) • Not in the paper: − agreement observed for NOC − but not for DIT!/ W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 14
    • 16. Conclusions/W&I / MDSE 3-11-2012 PAGE 15
