Summary: ABSTRACT
Aspect-oriented technology is a new programming paradigm
that is receiving considerable attention from research and
practitioner communities alike. It deals with those concerns
that crosscut the modularity of traditional programming
mechanisms, and its objectives include a reduction in the
amount of code written and higher cohesion. As with any
new technology, aspect-oriented technology has both
benefits and costs. In this position paper, we explore these
costs in terms of their impact on software engineering. We
seek to understand both the strengths and limitations of this
new technology, and to raise awareness of the potential
negative side effects of its use.
1. INTRODUCTION
Many researchers and industrial practitioners are exploring
the benefits and uses of aspect-oriented technology. There
seems, however, to be little ongoing research into the costs
and effects. At first glace, as with most new technologies, the
benefits are promising. However, each new technology
brings with it a set of costs. In this position paper, we explore
