Exception handling mechanisms are intended to support the development of robust software. However, the implementation of such mechanisms with aspectoriented (AO) programming might lead to error-prone scenarios. As aspects extend or replace existing functionality at specific join points in the code execution, aspects’ behavior may bring new exceptions, which can flow through the program execution in unexpected ways. This paper presents a systematic study that assesses the error proneness of AOP… CONTINUE READING
