Version 0.6 (Sep 2012)

  • 3563055: Include a new name attribute in the elements in the XML report, to contain the actual package name. Add packageName property to PackageResultsNode to hold the actual package name, independent of the source folder. NOTE: Not using packageName instead of path in HTML reports for now.

THANKS

  • Thanks to Akila Perera for the patch for #3560963.

Version 0.5 (Jan 2012)

NEW METRICS

  • New CoberturaBranchCoverageMetric. Branch coverage at method/class/package level. Requires a Cobertura "coverage.xml" file. (#3474462)
  • New CoberturaLineCoverageMetric. Line coverage at method/class/package level. Requires a Cobertura "coverage.xml" file. (#3474462)
  • New CrapMetric. Calculated the CRAP score for a method, based on its complexity and code coverage. Requires a Cobertura "coverage.xml" file. (#3192158.)

NEW FEATURES

  • MetricSet DSL: Return value from each metric in the metric set; Allow storing metric in variable. #3465486. This is useful for composite Metrics that require other metric values to calculate results (e.g. CrapMetric). If a metric is defined within another metric definition (assigned to a field), do not include as a standalone metric in the metric set.

INTEGRATION WITH OTHER TOOLS

  • If you use GMetric with CodeNarc, this release requires CodeNarc 0.16.

FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • Method-level Metrics: Handle multiple overloaded methods. (#3439103). Use MethodKey class.
  • Fix: For SingleSeries package-level reports, show the full package name, not just the rightmost part of the package name. (#3439104).
  • Add includeClosureFields property to AbstractMethodMetric. Defaults to true.
  • Add String getSignature() method to MethodResultsNode and MethodKey. Add signature attribute to Method elements in XmlReportWriter. #3444707.

FRAMEWORK/API CHANGES (Potential breaking changes if you have implemented your own Metrics)

  • Change Metric and AbstractMetric to add packageName to applyToPackage(): applyToPackage(String packageName, Collection childMetricResults). (Breaking Change). (#3465484)
  • Introduce new MethodMetric (extends Metric) interface: applyToMethod() and applyToClosure().
  • Create MethodKey class, with MethodKey(MethodNode) and MethodKey(String) constructors and String getMethodName() method, along with equals() and hashCode().
  • Introduce Formatter framework. Enable configuring Formatter for Metric within "gmetrics-base-messages.properties".
  • Reorganize MetricResult implementation classes; rename NumberMetricResult to SingleNumberMetricResult; Create new NumberMetricResult: allows setting values for total, average, min, max.
  • AggregateNumberMetricResult: Add support for predefinedValues.
  • Change writeReport(Writer writer, ResultsNode resultsNode, AnalysisContext analysisContext) to protected

Version 0.4 (Oct 2011)

NEW FEATURES

  • Upgrade to Groovy 1.7. NOTE: GMetrics now requires Groovy 1.7. (#3421010)
  • Support specifying metrics within the MetricSet by specifying the metric name, with optional properties Map or optional closure. (#3421008)

NEW METRICS

  • New FieldCountMetric. Counts the number of fields within each class. (#3341811)
  • New MethodCountMetric. Counts the number of methods (and closure fields) within each class. (#3341804)
  • New ClassCountMetric. Counts the number of classes within each package. (#3341812)

FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • Fix #3305753: Make GMetrics runnable (compatible) with Groovy 1.8.
  • Fix #3413604: Reimplement ASTUtil.getVariableExpressions() to optimize performance. Thanks to Hamlet D’Arcy.
  • Fix #3186167: GMetrics can't be built with Groovy >= 1.7.7. Fix illegal writes to final properties.
  • Fix #3418843: Reports: Exclude results for level "less" than metric base level
  • ReportWriters: Include output file name in “Report created” message

FRAMEWORK/API CHANGES (Potential breaking changes if you have implemented your own Metrics)

  • 3418135: Add MetricLevel getMetricLevel() to MetricResult interface and impl classes. Also AbstractMetric: Change protected createAggregateMetricResult() to add MetricLevel parameter.
  • Specify collection types (generics) for method signatures within Metric, MetricResult , ResultsNode and ClassMetricResult classes.
  • Add isValid() method to the SourceCode interface and implementations.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND TESTS

  • Create GMetricsVersion class with String getVersion(). Remove "GMetrics" from version file.
  • Upgrade to use CodeNarc 0.15 for tests/analysis.

Version 0.3 (23 Jul 2010)

NEW FEATURES

  • New SingleSeriesHtmlReportWriter. Creates HTML report for single series (univariate) of metric values. This single series is specified by a single Metric, a level (package, class or method) and a single function (total, average, minimum, maximum). e.g., metric:"ABC", function:"average", level:"method". Also supports optional: greaterThan:"50", lessThan:"100", sort:"descending", maxResults:"20"
  • For BasicHtmlReportWriter and XmlReportWriter: Add support for filtering metric values included within the reports by metric name, level ("package", "class" and "method") or function ("total", "average", "minimum" and "maximum"). e.g., metrics="CyclomaticComplexity, ABC" levels="CyclomaticComplexity=class,method; ABC=method" functions="ABC=average; CyclomaticComplexity=total,maximum"
  • Add support for "maximum" and "minimum" function for metrics.

FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • Fix: All method-level Metrics (e.g. MethodLineCountMetric): Apply to constructors as well as regular methods.

FRAMEWORK/API CHANGES

  • MetricResult: Replace hard-coded getTotal() and getAverage() methods with getAt(String) to support the metricResult['total'] syntax.
  • MetricResult. Add getLineNumber() method to interface. Change AbstractMetric and subclasses to populate the results accordingly.
  • AbstractMetric: Change calculateForClass() to be protected. AbstractMethodMetric: Specify MetricResult return type for calculate() methods.
  • MetricLevel: Change to be an enum.
  • GroovyDslMetricSet: Throw MissingPropertyException if a non-existent property is set within a Groovy MetricSet DSL. Set ruleset Closure resolveStrategy to DELEGATE_ONLY. (See CodeNarc GroovyDslRuleSet).
  • Upgrade to GMaven 1.2.

Version 0.2 (10 Mar 2010)

NEW FEATURES

  • New CyclomaticComplexityMetric
  • New MetricSet DSL: Implement GroovyDslMetricSet and MetricSetBuilder.
  • New XmlReportWriter

BREAKING CHANGES

  • Modify ReportWriter interface (and implementations) to pass AnalysisContext: void writeReport(ResultsNode resultsNode, AnalysisContext analysisContext).
  • Change DefaultMetricSet to include CyclomaticComplexityMetric instead of AbcMetric.

FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • Add metricSetFile property to GMetricsTask Ant Task.
  • AbcMetric (AbcVector): Fix "NumberFormatException: Infinite or NaN" error with large numbers.
  • AbcMetric: Calculate metric for run() synthetic method (special case).
  • GMetricsTask: Fix: Replace call to Class.forName() with getClass().classLoader.loadClass().
  • WildcardPattern: Escape plus sign ('+') within patterns. Add plus sign ('+') to convertStringWithWildcardsToRegex().
