The Quality Index measures 4 weighted axes of quality and combines them to give a global note score between 0 and 10 to the project, 10 being the best.


Coverage = Code coverage by unit tests.

If there is are no unit tests and thus no code coverage, the Coverage axis will get the worst grade.


Quality Index = 10 - 4.5 * Coding - 2 * Complexity - 2 * Coverage - 1.5 * Style

Complexity Factor

The Complexity Factor measures the complexity density.


  • Complexity>X = number of methods whose Complexity is greater than X
