[aspectj-users] How do I generate a method Signature programatically?


I'm working on my DeadCodeDetector aspect in my spare time, and now it detects constructed but unused classes (by using a combination of staticinitialization and execution pointcuts).

Now I want to continue and make it detect unused public methods.

For this I intend to use reflection in the after class loading advice, and insert one string for each public method in a Set<String> unusedMethods, which later can be removed by the after public method execution advice.

So what I need is to transform a java.lang.reflect.Method to a org.aspectj.lang.Signature. How do I do that?
