Isn't that one right there?

Does it seem reasonable to you?

I'm just getting started with it and it's not going really well so far. I'm
imitating simple examples from the manual and they just don't work. I'm not
sure what I'm messing up....

I don't recall ever seeing anyone ask aspect-oriented questions but I
certainly don't read every thread or even every subject line so I could
have missed some....

Since this is a newsgroup devoted to the Java programmer and AspectJ is a Java
programming tool, yes, of course this is the right forum.

Aspect programming is an advanced, hairy and special-purpose discipline. Are
you just learning it for the sake of learning it, or are you contemplating a
project use for it?

"Doctor, I have a problem," is a very limited request. We aren't sure what
you're messing up either.

There are some areas of Java programming that are almost never needed at the
application level, but are quite useful for framework development. They
include advance JavaBeans stuff like BeanInfo properties descriptors,
reflection beyond 'instanceof' and 'Class.newInstance()', class loader magic
and aspect programming.

Given your handle in this group, you might want to learn other things in Java
first before tacking aspect programming.

What is your use case for aspect programming?

Honi soit qui mal y pense.
