Abstract

The way in which components are connected is the key to several quality factors of software. Coupling is the manner and degree of interdependency between software modules. Low coupling is a sign of a well-structured computer system and good design. Object- oriented languages are designed for reducing interdependency between various classes but at the same time, the object oriented language characteristics change the way the connections are established, how they must be analyzed, and measured. There has been much research effort to develop and empirically validate metrics for OO design quality and strong theoretical background but because of lack of tools we are not able to collect the accurate values of those metrics. In this paper implementation of the Java Source Code analysis tool is described which takes use of Java parser as well as entity data structure. This tool will be useful to give accurate strength of coupling between various classes present in Java software.
