Author(s)John Bailey and David Budgen and Mark Turner and Barbara Kitchenham and Pearl Brereton and Stephen Linkman
DetailsConference Proceedings: 2007

Context: There is little empirical knowledge of the effectiveness of the object-oriented paradigm.

Objectives: To conduct a systematic review of the literature describing empirical studies of this paradigm.

Method: We undertook a Mapping Study of the literature.

Results: 138 papers have been identified and classified by topic, form of study involved, and source.

Conclusions: The majority of empirical studies of OO concentrate on metrics, relatively few consider effectiveness.
