Today we have finally announced that we are joining AspectJ to work on AspectJ 5.
We will focus on what has been the success of AspectWerkz
- plain Java AOP, relying on an annotation defined aspect style
- load time weaving, and integration in J2EE environment
The new team is backed by both IBM and BEA and the new project will be delivered in the coming months. One of the priority is to make sure that a smooth migration path exists from AspectWerkz to AspectJ 5.
That' s a great day for AspectWerkz and AspectWerkz users.
