Aspect-oriented programming with Jiazzi
We present aspect-oriented programming in Jiazzi. Jiazzi enhances Java with separately compiled, externally-linked code modules called units. Besides making programming in Java generally more modular, units are also effective “aspect” constructs that can separate concerns. The unit-linking metaphor provides a convenient and explicit way for programmers to explicitly control the inclusion and configuration of code that implements a concern, while separate compilation of units enhances concern independent development and deployment. The expressiveness of concern separation are enhanced by units in two ways. First, classes can be made open to the addition of new fields and methods by multiple units, which enables the direct modularization of concerns that crosscut objects. Second, the signatures of methods and classes used in a unit can be made open to refinement by other units, which makes it easier to integrate concern implementations by isolating them from the naming and callin...
