||Monday, March 14, 2005 afternoon (half day)
Bill Burke, JBoss Group LLC
Attendees should have experience with Java programming.
Knowledge of the basic principles of aspect-oriented programming is
helpful, but not required.
JBoss AOP is a 100% Pure Java aspected-oriented framework usuable in any
programming environment. It provides AOP features in a clean pluggable way
through annotations, pointcut expressions, or dynamically at runtime. It also
offers prepackaged aspects useful for enterprise applications including
caching, asynchronous communication, transactions, security, remoting, and
This tutorial will show how aspect-oriented programming can be used to solve
real world problems. It explains how to build, apply, and deploy aspects
within applications using the JBoss AOP framework. The real world examples
will include building basic aspects, using JDK 5.0 annotations plus AOP,
giving runtime APIs for your aspect using mixins, dynamic AOP, using AOP for
integration, and finally leveraging AOP for testing. Many of JBoss'
middleware aspects will be used for examples. At the end of the tutorial,
participants will understand how to use the JBoss AOP framework to make their
software development processes more modularized.
JBoss AOP is available at
