Hi all,

Is there any tool to measure how many domain concepts and how many programming concepts involved in a program, even during the development process? thanks

Simon,
What are domain concepts and programming concepts?

domain concepts are those concepts in a special domain, and could become programming concepts. Programming concepts are those design decisions in a program, such as class names so on. Thanks.

Simon,
There are tools that measure programming concepts. A search for metrics or cyclomatic complexity should give you a bunch of results. Some, like SourceForge's metrics and refactorit integrate with IDEs for ease during the development process.

I'm not sure if one could programatically measure domain concepts. If you had a UML diagram, that could be used.
