Subject Re: Aspectj integration
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2010 16:25:56 GMT
I'm not quite sure what you are proposing, J-C, but I can look over it
and help creating the aspectj module (having heavily used aspectj
before). J-C, can you elaborate more on it, what's the generalized
concept here? I.e. how are you thinking on processing the annotations
yet make it extensible?

to help me setup security in our platform and Shiro is exactly what I needed.  It's a simple
framework that do not pretend to perform everything for you and (best of all) it's "embeddable"
in any situation. It does not provide built-in audits (which is a requirement I have), but
I can easily do that myself using the events generated by the framework.

I realized that it is not currently available for me... only spring-aop can do this for now.
I looked in the forums and I found that I'm not the only one that want's to do that.

to do (validating actions programmatically is not really an option for me). I currently have
a prototype working and I need to work on the run-time now: integration of the compiler and/or
the code weaving (in a seamless manner). But nonetheless, I thing it could be a great addition
to Shiro. Would you guys be interested in a donation so that the community can benefit???
