A Versatile Kernel for Multi-language AOP
Abstract. Being able to define and use different aspect languages, including domain-specific aspect languages, to cleanly modularize concerns of a software system represents a valuable perspective. However, combining existing tools leads to unpredictable results, and proposals for experimentation with and integration of aspect languages mostly fail to deal position satisfactorily and to provide convenient abstractions to implement new aspect languages. This paper exposes the architecture of a versatile AOP kernel and its Java implementation, Reflex. On top of basic facilities for behavioral and structural transformation, Reflex provides composition handling, including detection of interactions, and language support via a lightweight plugin architecture. We present these facilities and illustrate composition of aspects written in different aspect languages.
