Hi!

Newbie to AOP and even though I read up prior to actually starting I have a
problem with a simple pointcut.

1. I want to declare a pointcut that matches methods that:
i. makes calls to all getters in xyz.SomeBean (is not that possible?)
and
ii. are in classes in the package abc and have the annotation
@Transactional
2. I want to mark those poincuts with an error


package abc;

public class ABC
{
/**
* @Transactional
*/
public void doSomething() {return;}
}


a) It works to just match 1.i.

pointcut ALL(): call(* xyz.SomeBean.get*(..));

b) Then I thought that

pointcut ONLYANNOTATED_1(): @Transactional * *(..) && call(*
xyz.SomeBean.get*(..));

would work but nope. Hence, I never tried to narrow down the pointcut just
to match method annotations in the abc package.

Neither does:

pointcut ONLYANNOTATED_2(): @Transactional * *(..);


The error message I get in Eclipse/AJDT is:

"Syntax error on token "Transactional", "pointcut name" expected"


Can anyone help me with the correct syntax?

Regards,
Jimisola

I managed to get it right by myself after much trouble :)
However, I am quite sure that I will soon stumble into new problems in the
world of AOP.

I do have another pointcut question.

a)
pointcut TRANSACTIONAL(Transactional transactionalAnnotation):
execution(@Transactional * se.stickybit.X.server..*(..)) &&
@this(transactionalAnnotation);

b)
pointcut TRANSACTIONAL(Transactional transactionalAnnotation): execution(*
se.stickybit.X.server..*(..)) && @this(transactionalAnnotation);

note the difference: @Transactional immedietly after "execution("

a) works as expected, i.e. only matching methods with the annotation
@Transactional. While b) matching everything.
So, what does @this actually do? Does it only make the annotation in the
join point available in the point cut?
If so, what happens if a matched method does not have the annotation (here
@Transactional) - will transactionalAnnotation be null?

Regards,
Jimisola
