	  abstract     = {Class cohesion is an important object-oriented
software quality attribute. It indicates how much the members in a
class are related. Assessing the class cohesion and improving the
class quality accordingly during the object-oriented design phase
allows for cheaper management of the later phases. In this paper, the
notion of distance between pairs of methods and pairs of attribute
types in a class is introduced and used as a basis for introducing a
novel class cohesion metric. The metric considers the methodmethod,
attribute-attribute, and attribute-method direct interactions.
It is shown that the metric gives more sensitive values than other
well-known design-based class cohesion metrics.},
