T2 : Aspect-Oriented Programming with AspectJ (1) : Introduction
||Monday, March 14, 2005 morning (half day)

Attendees should have experience doing object-oriented design
and implementation, and should be able to read and write Java code. No
prior experience with aspect-oriented programming or AspectJ is
AspectJ is a seamless aspect-oriented extension to Java(tm). It can be used
to cleanly modularize the crosscutting structure of concerns such as exception
handling, multi-object protocols, synchronization, performance optimizations,
and resource sharing.
When implemented in a non-aspect-oriented fashion, the code for these concerns
typically becomes spread out across entire programs. AspectJ controls such
code-tangling and makes the underlying concerns more apparent, making programs
easier to develop and maintain.
This tutorial will introduce Aspect-oriented programming and show how to use
AspectJ to implement crosscutting concerns in a concise, modular way.

Mik Kersten is a PhD student and IBM CAS fellow at the University of British
Columbia, where he is working on making IDEs more Aspect-Oriented. He is also
a committer on the AspectJ and AJDT eclipse.org projects. Before going back
to school he developed the original AspectJ IDE integration at Xerox PARC.
