Re: [aspectj-users] Pointcut on annotation attribute with any value?

I'm afraid the use of wildcards in pointcut annotation values for
matching isn't supported right now.  You could raise an enhancement
but I doubt it will be implemented in the near term.  The best you can
do is write some advice to match on @WebService then inside the advice
look at the annotation value and do some pattern matching yourself.
But of course that is a runtime check, not a compile time check - so
possibly not what you want...
