Here are the slides from last night’s talk Ramnivas gave on AOP.
Looks like I’ll have to get out more chairs. We are very lucky this month to have Ramnivas Laddad in Dallas and able to speak to our user group.
If you are keeping up-to-date with all the cool features in Spring 2.0, you have surely heard of the much improved integration with AspectJ. Therefore, this is a good time to understand the core concepts of this wonderful technology and how it can help you create even simpler Spring-based applications. This talk will introduce AspectJ to developers experienced with Spring, explaining the core AOP concepts and AspectJ constructs. It will also show various levels of integration with Spring that provides a smooth path towards adopting AspectJ. Several examples will be presented to reinforce the concepts leaned.
