The aim of the Squale - Software QUALity Enhancement - project is to provide models and associated tools to assess software quality and help improving it over time.
The project will deliver models and tools that:
- know how to aggregate raw quality information (like metrics for instance) - given by third party technologies, into high level factors,
- offer dashboards which present those factors and allow to dig deeply into the code quality,
- show the evolution of the quality over time,
- and give economical indicators about the return of investment of quality efforts.
Squale will not be restricted to Java software, but will target other platforms like C/C++, .NET, PHP, Cobol, ...
