ABSTRACT :Open-Source Software (OSS) is becoming very popular in today’s software development environment. In OSS, the development and maintenance of the software is decentralized due to which maintainability is core issue in OSS development. The mainten-ance of OSS is a never ending task.Software metrics help to control the uality of OSS. This paper reviews popular object-oriented metrics to analyze LOC, CC RCC and CLC of the JACOB Open Source Software (OSS) of Twenty-two releases over a successive versions.The terms LOC, CC, RCC and CLC was computed for all the Twenty-Two successive versions of OSS. The software metrics wre calculated using Understand4Java tool.
