Software refactoring is intended to enhance the quality of a software by improving its understandability, performance, as well as other quality attributes. We adopt the modelling framework of [14] in order to analyze software qualities, to determine which software refactoring transformations are most appropriate. In addition, we use software metrics to evaluate software quality quantitatively. Our framework adopts and extends work reported in [15].
