JBoss pushing Aspect Oriented programming

JBoss pushing Aspect Oriented programming

The key benefits of aspect-oriented programming are flexibility and simplicity, according to proponents. AOP is designed to streamline the development process by centralizing the policies that control certain functions that are used in several places within a computer program.

For example, a programmer could define a rule on how a Web server handles the way people log on to a Web site. Rather than having to change those rules for each individual accessing the site--which would involve tweaks in several places--an AOP tool lets a programmer alter the policies for the entire system all at once.

Programmers can also create their own "aspects" that handle certain functions. Analysts note that aspect-oriented programming dovetails well with widely used object-oriented programming techniques.
