Enterprise support is very interesting to me, in part because of current
"day job" projects, but also because it will teach us a lot about
building aspect "components" and how to make aspects first-class
architecture elements like classes, and not just "things we apply to
classes". In other words, I see this exercise as important for advancing
the theory and practice of AOSD.
A standard library would also be valuable. Even if it is kept somewhat
"unofficial" at this point, example aspects are really helpful for
learning and reuse.

Now that AspectJ 1.1.1 is out, it's time to turn our attention to 1.2.
This post is to start a discussion about possible themes and
priorities for the 1.2 release. The eventual plan will be influenced
by AspectJ's users, it's developers, and of course which items
contributors will sign up to implement - so anything we discuss here
should not be treated as a plan commitment at this stage. I'm
including all project tasks, not just those that might involve writing
With that said, here are some candidate themes to start the discussion
(not an ordered list):
* AspectJ for the Enterprise
This theme could include adding (and developing) material for the
website / docs / ... explaining how to use AspectJ with various app
servers and J2EE technologies. A classloader would come under this
category too, and perhaps even a set of samples or an aspect library
for working with AspectJ in J2EE.
