Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP)
This course provides a strong understanding of Aspect
Oriented Programming (AOP). It is a hands-on
course that provides a detailed introduction to Aspect oriented
programming and Aspect Oriented Software Design (AOSD). Attendees will get a good
overview and understanding of topics and concepts including:
What is AOP?
What are Aspects and Cross-cutting concerns?
AOP and its relationship to OO and Component
Tools available for programming Aspects
Adopting Aspects in the
Static Aspects (and AspectJ)
Each section introduces and explains a concept or technology, followed, as relevant and necessary, by a coding section to help the attendee understand the concept. Attendees may then be given an opportunity to run lab exercises that reinforce the concepts and coding that they have just learned.
Lab exercises will reinforce concepts learnt in class. Roughly a fourth of the class is will involve labs and lab related tasks
wish to understand and consider incorporating Aspects and AOP into their
Architects who are planning on using AOP for enterprise solutions
§ Basic knowledge of OO programming and at least one OO programming language (such as Java or c++)
Strong understanding of
Object-Oriented (OO) concepts and OO programming
Distributed computing concepts
and architectures, such as Client-Server or 3/n-tier.
server-side applications using any technology/language
At the end of this course, attendees will be able to make decisions regarding when it is appropriate and when it is not appropriate to leverage Aspects and Aspect Oriented Programming.
In addition, by the end of this course, attendees will have a very good conceptual understanding of:
* What Aspect Oriented Programming is all about
* The relationship between AOP and OO and Component technologies
* Choice of Tools available to leverage AOP
* Aspect Oriented Software Development
* Leveraging AOP to implement cross-cutting functionality into any application
* Understanding Static and Dynamic Aspects (including AspectJ, Spring & JBoss AOP)
will span three days.
