I saw this on Cedric’s blog first – BEA has released a WebLogic Aspect Framework that is based on AspectJ and is made of a set of predefined pointcuts that WebLogic users can simply reuse and write aspects for. You can download the framework at the dev2dev site
I haven’t kept up with the AOP ‘revolution’ and so can’t really comment on it. I have been trying to learn more about AOP to see if it really lives up to the hype. In fact, Merrick was blogging about this and had a great article titled Understanding AOP. Very concise article that really does a great job about explaining Aspect Orientated Programming. In fact, he sums up AOP as ‘fundamentally about separation of concern‘. Love that. Great way to describe AOP. The Spiders were also talking about AOP in their Geek Book Club, but I couldn’t make any of the sessions due to work conflicts 😦 Sorry Dave, Rossi and Vibhu.
