About Static Metrics

Static Metrics for C, C++ and Ada

Statistical measurement of source code properties is an extremely important matter when you are planning multiple tests or for project management purposes. Rational® Test RealTime provides a Metrics Viewer, which displays detailed source code complexity data and statistics for your C, C++ and Ada source code.

Static Metrics supports the following languages:

  • Ada: Ada 83 and Ada 95

  • C: C89 and C99

  • C++: ISO/IEC 14882:1998

How the static metrics tool works

Metrics are updated each time a file is modified. Static metrics can be computed each time a node is built, but can also be calculated without executing the application.

The metrics are stored in .met metrics files alongside the actual source files.
