Context: Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) is often described as a technique which improves the resulting software’s modularity. However, previous experiments seem to indicate that AOP is a technique which potentially increases the development or maintenance time. A possible reason why previous experiments were not able to show such a benefit is that those experiments did not consider situations where AOP has its strength: situations where aspects change. Objectives: Our objective is to analyze… CONTINUE READING
