Foundations of AOP for J2EE Development covers a relatively new programming paradigm: aspect-oriented programming, or AOP. Presented are the core concepts of AOP: AspectJ 5, JBoss AOP, Spring AOP, and JAC. Specific features of these tools are compared. The book also explores the potential uses of AOP in everyday programming life, such as design patterns implementation, program testing, and application management.

In the latter part of the book, the authors show how AOP can ease the task of J2EE application development (J2EE is known for being a rich and somewhat complicated framework).

Meet the Author

Lionel Seinturier received his Ph.D. in computer science from the Conservatoire National des Arts et M tiers, Paris, in December 1997. He holds a research position in computer science at LIFL, a computer science research laboratory that is jointly owned by the University of Lille (France) and INRIA (the French research agency for computer science). He is also an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Paris VI. Before joining academia, Seinturier also worked as a research engineer for France Telecom's research and development department, on the integration of ATM network technology and CORBA middleware. Seinturier's research interests include AOP and systems, middleware, and distributed algorithms. He is one of the programmers of the JAC AOP framework and the author of more than 25 international publications, including articles and tutorials on AOP.

Renaud Pawlak holds a Ph.D. in computer science and is a computer science researcher at INRIA, a public research institute in France. In 2003-2004, he was a postdoctorate fellow at Rensselaer Polytechnical Institute, Hartford Graduated Campus (U.S.), where he taught software engineering and AOP to graduate students. His research focuses on the separation of concerns (SoC) in software engineering, reflection, distributed middleware, and AOP. He developed an original programming model that is directly applicable to distributed environments (the Aspect Component Model). In January 2000, Pawlak cofounded the company AOPSYS, with the primary goal of supporting the use of AOP and SoC-related industry techniques. He is the founder and main programmer of the JAC framework, which is currently used by AOPSYS to develop projects for a variety of customers. Pawlak has authored more than 20 publications, including international research papers, popular science articles, and tutorials for JAC and AOP.
