If you want to make any change in Aspect, I think you will have to build the entire application. In eclipse, you need to configure the "LTW Aspectpath" value before weaving the aspect code at load-time. I tried creating the jar of aspect's class file along with aop.xml and mentioning it in "LTW Aspectpath". So if you want to change the Aspect, you will have to create a fresh jar file, so that eclipse picks the new changes.

Is loadtime weaving work with change pushed using hotswap during debugging session?
In other words, if I’m in Eclipse debugging my code in runtime, and I modify a method body, the change is normally pick-up on the fly without I have to restart the application. Is this still working when using loadtime weaving? Any functionality lost?
