Reflections on aspects and configurable protocols
The goals of aspect oriented software development (AOSD) and frameworks for configurable protocols (CPs) are similar in many respects. AOSD allows the specification of crosscutting concerns called aspects as separate modules that are woven with the base program as needed. CPs are oriented towards building protocols or services with different quality of service (QoS) properties and attributes out of collections of independent modules, with each configuration customizing the service for a given application and execution environment. As AOSD evolves to address issues in areas such as middleware, operating systems, and distributed computing that have traditionally been the domain of CPs, lessons learned from the development of these frameworks could be useful. The purpose of this paper is to draw parallels between AOSD and CP frameworks, with a specific focus on the Cactus framework and how it compares and contrasts with the aspect-oriented paradigm.
