Welcome to DJcutter

Distributed AOP Language


A remote pointcut is a language construct for designating joinpoints (execution points) on remote hosts. The idea is similar to remote method call (RMI) for distributed OOP, that is, the remote pointcut transparently provides identifying the joinpoints on remote hosts with the same syntax as doing it on local host. By using it, developers can simplify the description of aspects to separate a crosscuting concern spanning over multiple hosts.

DJcutter is the complier and run-time system that supports to the remote pointcut. Now, DJcutter language is an extension to the AspectJ language. The developers can write DJcutter's aspects by using AspectJ syntax.
