In this paper the reliability is presented as an important feature for use in mission-critical distributed applications. Certain aspects of distributed systems make the requested level of reliability more difficult. An obvious benefit of distributed systems is that they serve the global business and social environment in which we live and work. Another benefit is that they can improve the quality of services, in terms of reliability, availability and performance, for the complex systems. The paper presents results of a study conducted by the students of Economic Informatics at the University "Lucian Blaga" Sibiu, over four months. The studied population was represented by several distributed applications made under the object oriented programming techniques. This study aimed to estimate the reliability of these applications using object-oriented design metrics validation techniques.
