I saw an interesting talk on Aspects in Java using something other than AspectJ (which of course isn't Java, but something like Java).
JAC essentially acts as a wrapper and does runtime analysis of Java bytecode to weave various aspects in and out of the system. Its fairly impressive, but its largely based on naming conventions, which isn't so useful.
The really neat thing is that they created a UI aspect. Now, I might not be smoking enough crack here, but I have my doubts that you could make a UI aspect that is good for much beyond debugging. I've not had time to look at it, but it goes on my list.
It seems to me that often when we find a new progmramming mindset, we seem to forget that others still have a place within that framework - we are just building layers right ?
Anyway, I'm going to take a look when I can at Marcel's Aspect module a little more closely, and see what can be done with it.
The bad news is that I missed Thursday at the conference because of a cold. Who goes on holiday and gets sick? Well, other than me...
