Abstract : This paper provides an overview of the merging of a paradigm and a process, the object-oriented paradigm and the software product measurement process. A taxonomy of object-oriented software measures is created, and existing object-oriented software measures are enumerated, evaluated, and placed in taxa. This report includes an extensive bibliography of the current object-oriented measures that apply to the design and implementation phases of a software project. Examples of computation of representative measures are included.
