metrics : Java Glossary


the amount of space each letter of the character set takes up horizontally and vertically so that you can precisely compute how much space needed to display a given string of text. It also refers to measurement of object-oriented technology and its use. Measurement is interpreted widely to include such matters as cost estimation, test management, surveys of uptake of OO (Object Oriented) and industrial experience, provided these are to any extent quantitative.
