Methodology enabling modularizing of crosscutting
concerns. Experience shows that with standard
procedural or object-oriented languages it
can be hard to modularize many design concerns.
Outgrowth of Xerox PARC OO programming research.
Includes bibliography of aspect-oriented publications,
sorted by year and by author.
Decomposition and Composition
Free chapter from the book "Generative Programming"
- covers basic concepts of AOP with examples
in C++, Java, Smalltalk, and in AspectJ, Demeter,
SOP and Composition Filters; and techniques
for implementing weaving.

specification, and databases.
Case for Aspects
In this two part article Ivar Jacobson describes
how aspect oriented programming provides the
missing link to providing use-case modularization
all the way from requirements down to code.
Modular, orthogonal, aspect-oriented filters

A series of 3 articles in JavaWorld magazine,
with code examples, on how Aspect-Oriented
Programming helps separate concerns and improves
maintainability and flexibility.
Separation of Concerns: Software Engineering
using Hyperspaces Hyperspaces allow software
enginners to split code - and other software
artifacts such asrequirements and design documents
- along multiple concern dimensions, and recombine

Technology Review cites Aspect-Oriented Programming
as one of Top Ten Innovations
The respected publication MIT Technology Review
predicts that the power of aspect-orientation
to separate previously difficult-to-disentangle
concerns will make it a big success. (January,
