SDMetrics' filtering mechanism is based on the fully qualified names of design elements. For example, if your design model is called "BankingApplication", the fully qualified name of a class "Account" in a top-level package "businesslogic" is:
If class "Account" has a method "deposit" with a parameter "amount", the fully qualified name of parameter "amount" is:

The fully qualified name of a model element is the name of element, prepended by the fully qualified name of element's owner and a period. Note that SDMetrics element filters use the period as namespace separator, not the double colon (::) of the UML.
