Some aspects of system implementation, such as logging, error handling, standards enforcement and feature variations are notoriously difficult to implement in a modular way. The result is that code is tangled across a system and leads to quality, productivity and maintenance problems. Aspect Oriented Software Development enables the clean modularization of these crosscutting concerns. The AspectJ Development Tools (AJDT) project provides Eclipse platform based tool support for AOSD with AspectJ. Our goal is to deliver a user experience that is consistent with the Java Development Tools (JDT) when working with AspectJ projects and resources. This will be accomplished by developing an integration layer between the AspectJ Development Environment Framework and Eclipse/JDT extension points.
