This list is a perfectly appropriate
place to post questions relating to the use of AspectJ and AspectJ-related
tools (including AJDT). AJDT does also have its own newsgroups, but the
developers monitor this list closely too. If someone spots, say, a
typo in the book, then probably the whole list isn't interested in that
and it would be more appropriate to email the authors direct.

Onto the question in point, it sounds
like there is something fundamentally broken in your AJDT setup - AJDT
*is* continually improving, but the basics of converting a project to an
AspectJ, creating new aspects etc. have been stable for a good while. What
version of Eclipse and of AJDT are you using? I'm suspicious this could
be a v3.0 <-> v3.1 mismatch type issue...

Please respond to
[aspectj-users] eclipse AspectJ Book
I've just bought a copy of the AspectJ team's new book and have tried to
work through the Simple Insurance example. However, I have encountered
a problem in converting from a Java project to an Aspect project - I get
a "Build Configuration Error" message.
Notwithstanding the aforesaid, the Simple Insurance application's context
menu indicates that the conversion was successful. However, this is not
the case since I cannot create an aspect either - I get the meassage "An
error has occurred when creating this editor". I am now stuck at page
37. I suspect that discrepancies have crept in between the example and
the Eclipse platform since the book went to press.
Indeed, there are differences between the book and the downloaded example.
Now, before I get stuck into further details will the moderator please
advise if this is the right forum for questions relating to the book. I'm
unsure since the authors have omitted to leave a forwarding address for
any queries. If the authors are reading this posting should I assume that
that this is a case of caveat emptor and cease further postings on this
