AOP using AspectJ

Even though I had heard about AOP, I didn’t take it seriously. I thought it was meant for Enterprise applications usage like Transaction management, logging etc. But recently I was faced with a problem - how to know an Object’s state changes in Java. As you know state of an Object is its properties, so what I want is to know when the state changes. I didn’t quite get what to do about it, and so posted in stackoverflow. And the answer was to use AspectJ!

Here is the link to SO -

And now am learning AspectJ - joinpoints and pointcuts!
