Re: [aspectj-users] How to apply an aspect for a subtype of a payload without an instanceof?

I can't think of a trivial way.  Do you want to avoid the cast because
you don't want a reference to the type APayload in the aspect?
You could:
- use another marker interface to indicate why this one is special,
have it extend Payload and have APayload implement that.  Then either
change your advice only to match those SpecialPayloads or do an
instanceof check on the new SpecialPayload interface in the advice.
- avoid the type reference by asking for the name of the runtime type
and comparing it with a string (yuck)
- use reflection to do a dynamic dispatch based on the runtime type.
