Existing quality models like the ISO 9126 model lack preciseness in order to be able to assign metrics provided by static code analysis tools. Furthermore architects need a technical view on problems identified by static code analysis tools – independent of the classification a specific tool might provide. We therefore developed a Technical Topic Classification (TTC) that tries to overcome the problems mentioned above and assigned approximately 2,000 metrics from various static code analysis tools for Java, C#, and C++ to our TTC. The underlying metamodel for the TTC is semantically richer than the metamodel of typical quality models.
