Foundations of AOP for J2EE Development
Foundations of AOP for J2EE Development covers a relatively new programming paradigm: aspect-oriented programming, or AOP. Presented are the core concepts of AOP: AspectJ 5, JBoss AOP, Spring AOP, and JAC. Specific features of these tools are compared. The book also explores the potential uses of AOP in everyday programming life, such as design patterns implementation, program testing, and application management.
In the latter part of the book, the authors show how AOP can ease the task of J2EE application development (J2EE is known for being a rich and somewhat complicated framework).
The concepts of AOP are presented independently of any particular implementationCovers all 4 major existing tools for AOP: AspectJ, JBoss AOP, AspectWerkz, JACCovers the implementation of a technical aspect based on the Hibernate object/relational persistence framework, a J2EE application implemented with AspectJ, and applications of AOP in the domains of programming by contracts, program testing, and application management
