Spring AOP Tutorial Examples Aspect Framework

Spring aop tutorial for beginners and professionals, it has all aspects and advice examples. In this Spring AOP Tutorial, We have lot of Examples of Creating Spring Aspect using annotation @Aspect, Declaring @Pointcut for Join Point and declaring different advice by using annotation based configuration @Before, @After, @Around annotations and also examples of XML-based or Schema based configuration. And also we will discuss about AOP Proxy.

Spring AOP Tutorial

What is AOP?

AOP stands for Aspect Oriented Programming, It compliments OOPs in the different sense of concern, it also provides modularity. But in AOP the key unit of modularity is aspect than class and this aspects enable the modularization of concerns such as logging, security and transaction management. And these concerns cut across multiple types and objects in the application and these are commonly also known as crosscutting concerns of the application.

What are Cross-Cutting Concerns?

• Generic functionality that is needed in many places in your application
• Examples
– Logging and Tracing
– Transaction Management
– Security
– Caching
– Error Handling
– Performance Monitoring
– Custom Business Rules

System Without AOP or Modularization

There are two main problems
– Code tangling
• A coupling of concerns
– Code scattering
• The same concern spread across modules

 System Without AOP or Modularization

System With AOP or Modularization

Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) enables modularization of cross-cutting concerns
– To avoid tangling
– To eliminate scattering

System With AOP or Modularization

Core AOP Concepts

Join Point
– A point in the execution of a program such as a method call or exception thrown
Pointcut
– An expression that selects one or more Join Points
Advice
– Code to be executed at each selected Join Point
Aspect
– A module that encapsulates pointcuts and advice
Weaving
– Technique by which aspects are combined with main code
