Measuring Development Speed II

This is a followup to my post about Measuring Development Speed. Here’s an updated graph showing the current state of head/master:

Most dramatic change in Struts/jsp LOC is now: 5412 (time period ending Feb 2011)

Most dramatic change in SpringMVC/ftl LOC is still: 3665 (time period ending Sep 2010)

Again, some assumptions/disclaimers:

  • these data are not useful for estimating speed of future refactoring work
  • all acceptance tests pass in refactored areas
  • look & feel of refactored areas is acceptable

Also see this this thread on the dev list about the usefulness of these measurements.
