AspectJ does not provide a mechanism to hide implementation details from advice. As a result, aspects are tightly coupled to the implementation of the code they advise, while the behaviour of the base code is impossible to determine without analysing all advice that could modify its behaviour.The concept of <i>open modules</i> is proposed by Aldrich to(More)
A wealth of recent research involves generating program monitors from declarative specifications. Doing this efficiently has proved challenging, and available implementations often produce infeasibly slow monitors. We demonstrate how to dramatically improve performance -- typically reducing overheads to within an order of magnitude of the program's normal(More)
These notes are an introduction to .QL, an object-oriented query language for any type of structured data. We illustrate the use of .QL in assessing software quality, namely to find bugs, to compute metrics and to enforce coding conventions. The class mechanism of .QL is discussed in depth, and we demonstrate how it can be used to build libraries of(More)
A trace monitor observes the sequence of events in a system, and takes appropriate action when a given pattern occurs in that sequence. Aspect-oriented programming provides a convenient framework for writing such trace monitors. We provide a brief introduction to aspect-oriented programming in AspectJ. AspectJ only provides support for triggering extra code(More)
