Michele Lanza is an Assistant Professor at the University of Lugano, Switzerland. His main research interests lie in software (re)engineering and software evolution with a special focus on software visualization and metrics. He was the creator of CodeCrawler, a freely available language-independent software visualization tool. His Ph.D. work won the Ernst Denert Software Engineering Award in 2003. Michele is a member of the ACM and IEEE. Radu Marinescu is an Assistant Professor at the University of Timisoara, Romania. Radu's research focuses on object-oriented reengineering and quality assurance. Several of his published research ideas have been applied in the well-known "Borland Together Control Center" CASE Tool. He also acted as a reviewer in several phases of the IEEE's SWEBOK (Software Engineering Body of Knowledge) project.
"This well-written book is an important piece of work that takes the seemingly forgotten art of object-oriented metrics to the next level in terms of relevance and usefulness." Richard C. Gronback, Chief Scientist, Borland Software Corporation.
