Title: Quality measure tool for a composite application

Abstract: A method for estimating a quality measure of a composite application is presented. The method may include receiving a set of sequence diagrams describing interactions between pairs of components in a composite application. Each sequence diagram may describe a functional use case of the composite application. Component quality metrics may also be received, such that each component quality metric corresponds to a component of the composite application. A quality estimation may be calculated for each use case of the composite application. The quality estimation may be determined as a function of one or more of the component quality metrics. A quality measure of the composite application may then be calculated as a function of the quality estimation for each use case. The quality measure of the composite application may be output.
