Equinox Aspects Incubator Code Available

After a lengthy period of legal clarifications we got the first version of the new AspectJ-Load-Time-Weaaving extension for the Equinox OSGi runtime out. Matthew Webster put his code into the CVS and wrote a nice Getting Started page. You should definitely take a look at it and try things out. The two aspect adoption models (co-op and opt-in, more information here) provide a powerful set of possibilities to use load-time aspect weaving for OSGi-based applications (Eclipse-RCP, for example, as well as server-side-OSGi stuff :-).
You might also take a look at bug entries for the Equinox Incubator component which start with [Aspects] to find out more about bugs, additional features and so on.
