    In this paper we report on our experiences of using the Dagstuhl Middle Metamodel as a basis for defining a set of software metrics. This approach involves expressing the metrics as Object Constraint Language queries over the metamodel. We provide details of a system for specifying Javabased software metrics through a tool that instantiates the metamodel from Java class files and a tool that automatically generates a program to calculate the expressed metrics. We present details of an exploratory data analysis of some cohesion metrics to illustrate the use of our approach.
