JReceiver: Code Metrics
Various statistics on the JReceiver code base.
JDepend traverses a set
of Java class and source file directories and generates design quality
metrics for each Java package. JDepend allows you to automatically
measure the quality of a design in terms of its extensibility,
reusability, and maintainability to effectively manage and control package

Provides measures of code size and complexity:
- Non Commenting Source Statements (NCSS) - lets you know how
much source code is involved.
- Cyclomatic Complexity Number (McCabe metric) - CCN is also know as
McCabe Metric. There exists a much hyped theory behind it based on graph
theory, but it all comes down to simply counting 'if', 'for', 'while'
statements etc. in a method. Whenever the control flow of a method
splits, the "CCN counter" gets incremented by one.
