A few years back, I dabbled a bit with Aspect Oriented Programming and dorked around with JBoss AOP and AspectJ. I created a few aspects an threw them up on Java.net. Over the years, I never really kept up with maintaing the project. Since then, Java.net migrated projects and Handy Aspects was removed. Since then, I have received a few requests for the code and I planned on moving it to GitHub.
But rather than simply throwing the code up there “as-is”, I decided to bring the project up to date a bit. For example, I moved the build from Ant to Maven and brought the dependencies up to the latest versions. I also removed JBoss AOP version and everything is now based on AspectJ. With that said, you can follow and fork the new project Handy-Apsects project here.
