News: AspectJ article from ObjectiveView online magazine

  1. In ObjectiveView, volume 9, an online magazine distributed via PDF, Alex Ruiz has written a worthwhile introductory article on AspectJ. Accompanying the AspectJ article are other articles by Scott Ambler ("Glacial Methodology"), Richard Vaughn ("Ajax Analysis"), and Ken Pugh ("Prefactor and Be Agile") and others.

    The PDF distribution format makes reading a little difficult - much as some other online magazines' PDF formats mostly prevent one from zeroing in on specific relevant comment. This particular magazine has a very broad approach, mostly centering (in this issue) on agile development, Ruby, Ajax, and Java, and the articles tend to center on the introductory levels, but it has potential for more advanced topics as well, if only because many of the contributors are fairly well-known within their spheres of influence.

    What do you think?
  2. Fantastic article by Scott Ambler. One of his best. :)

    I laughed. I cried.

    Not on purpose.

    It must be me refusing to understand. There must absolutely be
    something new in the article.
    But I am quite sure I have already read something similar in
    Object-Oriented Modeling and Design -
    James R Rumbaugh, Michael R. Blaha, William Lorensen, Frederick Eddy, William Premerlani.

    I think that this would help too.

    Oops,
    I have not read all the article nor the full "methodology".
    The very first statements were sufficient to get me angry...
    (Really, I thought Scott Ambler is getting crazy....)
    But, it was not the 1st of April anyway...

    In April I'll be running a workshop on the method at Waterfall 2006, see http://www.waterfall2006.com/ . You might enjoy the interview that I did with Floyd Marinescu regarding the conference. It can be downloaded at http://www.waterfall2006.com/waterfall2006.rm.ram

    Say that (linked from the pdf). I like how you went all out and did anchors from the diagram to each point. :)

    Thanks. Keeps it as real as possible for the traditional data folks out there who don't get it.

  11. Thanks for directing my attention to this journal. I see a lot of good stuff in the 9 issues that are out so far. Just this morning I was amusing myself with the thought that even though I can get Dr. Dobbs and Java Developer's Journal for free, I am not even going to heed the warning on this month's issue of Dr. Dobbs and renew my free subscription. Ditto for Software Development or whatever it's called now.

    This "Objective View" journal beats any of the commercial rags that lost their edge years ago.
