In component based software engineering, the quality of the produced software directly depends on the quality of the components involved. As component quality measurement is gaining attention, discovery of good quality components is an advancing topic. This paper presents a new metric for component assessment. The contribution of this paper is threefold. First, we define the Reuse Frequency of a component. We observe how Reuse Frequency correlates with component quality. Second, we present a Component Assessment System, we use discover and assess components automatically. Third, we introduce the Component Graph we use to relate components to each other. Applying our technique to a large component repository allows to classify the found components according to their Reuse Frequency Show more
