Thanks for the reply Eric.
At the moment I am just concerned with static weaving, e.g. inserting a
new constructor to classes. So I think rt.jar weaving should work for
me, but need to clarify some things first:
1. Does AspectJ provide a native/straightforward solution for weaving
into rt.jar or is it some kind of a workaround?
2. Can we take out the woven code from the rt.jar? (I personally think
it's not possible due to the complexity of the involved tasks)

There may be "hacks" to get around this, but to my best knowledge,
ajc's load time weaver does share those limitations. I have heard of
people though who successfully wove into rt.jar statically. Whether
this works or not probably depends on what your aspect does, though.

I just found out recently that in Java, a custom class loader cannot
load core Java classes, i.e. classes located in java.* -- an exception
will be thrown if we attempt to do this.
So, I was wondering whether the same limitation also applies to AspectJ?
For example, can inter-type declarations be applied to java.lang.Object?
