</td> [<a href="#NVsummary">summary] [<a href="#NVpackages">packages] [<a href="#NVcycles">cycles] [<a href="#NVexplanations">explanations] </td> <p>The following explanations are for quick reference and are lifted directly from the original JDepend documentation.

<h3>Number of Classes <p>The number of concrete and abstract classes (and interfaces) in the package is an indicator of the extensibility of the package.

<h3>Afferent Couplings <p>The number of other packages that depend upon classes within the package is an indicator of the package's responsibility.

<h3>Efferent Couplings <p>The number of other packages that the classes in the package depend upon is an indicator of the package's independence.

<h3>Abstractness <p>The ratio of the number of abstract classes (and interfaces) in the analyzed package to the total number of classes in the analyzed package.

<p>The range for this metric is 0 to 1, with A=0 indicating a completely concrete package and A=1 indicating a completely abstract package.

<h3>Instability <p>The ratio of efferent coupling (Ce) to total coupling (Ce / (Ce + Ca)). This metric is an indicator of the package's resilience to change.

<p>The range for this metric is 0 to 1, with I=0 indicating a completely stable package and I=1 indicating a completely instable package.

<h3>Distance <p>The perpendicular distance of a package from the idealized line A + I = 1. This metric is an indicator of the package's balance between abstractness and stability.

<p>A package squarely on the main sequence is optimally balanced with respect to its abstractness and stability. Ideal packages are either completely abstract and stable (x=0, y=1) or completely concrete and instable (x=1, y=0).

<p>The range for this metric is 0 to 1, with D=0 indicating a package that is coincident with the main sequence and D=1 indicating a package that is as far from the main sequence as possible.
