Aspect-Oriented Programming Will Improve Quality, Ramnivas Laddad

Software engineers arealways looking for ways to improve modularity in software. Recently, aspect-oriented programming emerged as a new modularity technique that aims to cleanly separatethe implementation of crosscutting concerns(requirements and design elements that affect multiple modules). Several characteristics of AOP work together to improve software quality.

Aspect-Oriented Programming: the Real Costs?, Roger Alexander

The essence of aspect-oriented programming is that crosscutting concerns are factored into distinct abstractions (that is, aspects) that are solely responsible for a particular crosscutting concern. This raises the system?s modularity and increases cohesion of the abstractions that are primary concerns. We must understand and address AOP's significant weaknesses before we can realize its benefits.
