Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) provides systematic means to modularize crosscutting concerns in software development. Common AOSD benefits are a higher level of abstraction, concern reuse, better legibility, and software maintainability improvement. In AOSD, static weaving implementations commonly obtain better runtime performance, whereas dynamic weaving provides run-time application adaptiveness and a valuable aid in software development. Since both approaches provide benefits, the authors have developed a Dynamic and Static Aspect Weaving (DSAW) platform that supports both kinds of weavers: a full dynamic one to offer high dynamic adaptiveness and a static one to obtain better run-time performance when the application is deployed.
