Abstract

Execution tracing and logging significantly influence the time spent on localizing software errors; consequently, they have essential impact on maintainability. Moreover, in certain situations these tools are the best suited instruments to analyse the behaviour of distributed, multi threaded or embedded applications. In spite of this, software product quality frameworks do not include execution tracing or logging as a quality property. In this paper we examine the extension possibilities of the present software product quality frameworks to accommodate execution tracing. In addition, the scope of the investigation includes facilities of the frameworks to address the uncertainty involved in quality measurements
