In this paper, a metric for object oriented language is formulated and validated. On the contrruy of the other metrics used for object oriented programming (OOPs), the proposed metric calculates the complexity of a dass at method level and hence considers the intemal architecture of the classes, subclasses and member functions. The proposed met1ic is evaluated against Weyuker's proposed set of measurement principles through examples and val idated through experimentation, case study and comparative study with similar measures. The practical usefulness of the metric is evaluated by a practical framework.
