Hi Frederik,

The way to get interceptors involved in Blueprint is to add a
namespace handler.  This is something that processes a blueprint
namespace extension.  So you would define a namespace that you would
add to blueprint, and maybe an associated element that you would
include to identify the services to be intercepted, and then your
namespace handler would be engaged and have the opportunity to do its

Apache Aries has a number of examples of this (e.g. JPA,
Transactions).  I'd probably start by taking a look at the one for

I hope this helps.
