RE: [aspectj-users] OT: Crosscutting concerns and XML

Hi Jose,

Cheers for the reply. I had actually read the article (and it's a good one if anyones interested) but it doesn't quite hit what I was talking about. Aspectwerkz provides a different set of mechanims  for implementing crosscutting concerns in Java ultimately. I am looking at applying crosscutting concerns to XML itself, as the target if you like. It may be that the XML definitions that exist within Aspectwerkz could provide a starting point for crosscutting definitions that are to be applied to XML (instances and/or schema?) but it doesn't directly address what I'm considering. But, I have to be honest, this is just an idea (applyingcrosscutting concerns into xml) at the moment and I was wondering if it was one that had already been thought of and worked upon somewhere else in the community.

I guess I am trying to figure out if the same advantages that we get from aspect oriented approaches implemented for Java (increased modularity of crosscutting concerns, and ultimately flexibility in the design) could be applied to the definitions and processing of XML. I am also looking at this from the perspective of the standards committees that I work on and how they are looking at XML because some of issues they have appear to be crosscutting and so that led me to my question.

Thanks for the pointer though :-)

Cheers,

Russ
