"We are, of course, working on a number of interesting future directions tight to the in tight coordination with the rest of the BEA products line, but the near term goals are to build deep and unprecedented support for AOP, including real-time run-time weaving into JRockit Java Virtual Machine, and to make AspectWerkz on top of JRockit the number one choice for dynamic AOP in enterprise application environments."Read BEA sponsors AspectWerkz
He then goes on to talk about the most recent re-work of AspectWerkz, and the new features included.
"AspectWerkz has gone through a lot of changes, the whole core engine has for example been thrown out and replaced by a much more flexible and performant one. The join point model is much more expressive and orthogonal we have also implemented a JIT compiler that is making AspectWerkz much more performant. On top of that we have a new implementation of true runtime weaving, which allows you to redefine your aspect model including adding new pointcuts at runtime."Read Next generation of the AspectWerkz AOP framework is released
I look forward to meeting Jonas at the AOSD 2004 conference in London next week!
