Re: [aspectj-dev] RE: [aspectj-users] Call Join points

The version that uses DataContracts.*.*(..) does not work because this 
will match any type in a package DataContracts (AspectJ expects a type 
pattern in this position), but DataContracts.ACCOUNT_ACTIONS is not a type 
- it's a the name of a public field. The version that Ramnivas proposes I 
would expect to work. I created a simple replica of your project and tried 
all of:

call( * AccountActionsData.*(..))
call(* *(..)) && target(AccountActionsData)  // also matches the toString 
call(* *(..)) && target(aad) && if (aad == DataContracts.ACCOUNT_ACTIONS) 
// only matches for the ACCOUNT_ACTIONS instance

which all worked for me as expected.

Here is my source code:

package abc;

public class Driver {

    public static void main(String[] args) {



package abc;

public interface DataContracts {

    public static AccountActionsData ACCOUNT_ACTIONS = 
        new AccountActionsData();


package abc;

public class AccountActionsData {
    public void boo() {}



package abc;

public aspect ExceptionHandling {

    pointcut exceptionHandling(AccountActionsData aad) :
        call(* *(..)) && target(aad) && if(aad == 
    Object around() : exceptionHandling(AccountActionsData) {
        System.out.println("handling " + thisJoinPoint);
        try {
            return proceed();
        } catch (Exception ex) {
            return null;


when I run this I get the output:

handling call(void abc.AccountActionsData.boo())
handling call(String java.lang.Object.toString())

So I guess that leads to 2 questions:
* does my source code work in your environment?, and
* can you think of any difference between my example and yours that could 
be causing the failure to match?

I'm travelling again today and will be offline again for the next few

[aspectj-dev] RE: [aspectj-users] Call Join points

Can one of the developers look into the situation below and let me know
if this is a bug or if it is something that I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the suggestion, but that does not work either.  Actually,
neither of those approaches work for some reason.  I think we need one
of the developers to comment on why this might be happening.

I think your pointcut should be like the following:
    pointcut exceptionHandlingInsertion() :
        call(* AccountActionsData.*(..));

    Or if you want to apply to only ACCOUNT_ACTIONS instances:

     pointcut exceptionHandlingInsertion(AccountActionsData aad) :
        call(* AccountActionsData.*(..)) && target(aad) && if(aad == 
DataContracts.ACCOUNT_ACTIONS) ;
