I'm interested in working on the aspect incubator. Unfortunately the aspect
incubator web page does not have much information in terms of recent work.
Can anybody inform me about the state of the project or what the best place
to start is? Any help is appreciated.
Sorry for the delay in putting up information on the website. The work
of the Aspects incubator currently tries to integrate load-time aspect
weaving into the Eclipse runtime. Therefore we unify two slightly
different approaches (AJEER and AOSGi) to find out the best way to
integrate this kind of on-demand aspect weaving into Eclipse.
Having load-time weaving at the runtime level allows you to deploy
aspects implemented using AspectJ and AJDT via the plugin/bundle
mechanism of the runtime. Those aspects are woven into the system at
class-loading time. That means that you do not need to know those
plugins/bundles at compile time to weave the aspects into.
For your use-case of aspects it would allow you to put aspects into
different plugins/bundles than the affected classes.
The code base is not yet committed into the CVS. We are currently
working on a version that works with the latest milestone of Eclipse
3.2. For a first look you might want to take a look at the latest AJEER
build for Eclipse 3.1 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ajeer).
Hope this helps!
