Re: [aspectj-users] Intertype Questions after porting to 1.1.1

Hi Paul -

Thanks for upgrading!

Glad to. Sorry it took us so long! :)

In reverse order:

- Use the iajc task, not Ajc10, if you can.
  (though results *should* be the same)

Definitely. I only used Ajc10 while trying to verify whether the behavior I was seeing existed in earlier releases or not.

- Please do submit a bug for the reflective-invocation of
the constructor defined by the aspect (presumably publicly);
it will at least result in a doc clarification.  Try it
first with the latest compiler.

Will do.

- Is Reservation an interface?

I've tried it with Reservation as an interface, and found that the only way I could get my test code to work was:
a) Reservation interface included the method, and
b) My Object in the TestCase was a Reservation object:

    Reservation res = new ReservationImpl(argsGoHere);

If I wrote:

    ReservationImpl res = new ReservationImpl(argsGoHere);

I still got the same behavior - I couldn't access the introduced method, even though it was declared on the interface that ReservationImpl implemented. As I read the rest of your email, I think you say that I should expect what I did encounter - at least with 1.1.1 as released.

But I'm not going to look any further than this given that:
a) both you and Ron indicated that there was a known bug that has been fixed in CVS Head, which I'm (unfortunately) not going to get to look at soon, and
b) I've found a perfectly reasonable work around - I actually didn't need the intertype declarations, and could just move the methods onto the affected class.

Hope this helps!

Definitely did, and thank you as well for the prompt response!
