AOSD'03 Practitioner Report
Performance analysis is motivated as an ideal domain for benefiting from the application of Aspect Oriented (AO) technology. The experience of a ten week project to apply AO to the performance analysis domain is described.
We show how all phases of a performance analysts’ activities – initial profiling, problem identification, problem analysis and solution exploration – were candidates for AO technology assistance – some being addressed with more success than others. A Profiling Workbench is described that leverages the capabilities of AspectJ, and delivers unique capabilities into the hands of developers exploring caching opportunities.
