RE: [aspectj-users] A Pointcut that matches nothing

Yeah I think I generally used to do some kind of boolean flag..  I remember
seeing something like following aspect in the Kiselev book (one of the first
AspectJ books I think)


aspect AllJoinPointsAspect {

	private boolean TRACE = true;

	before(): if(TRACE) && !within(AllJoinPointsAspect) {

One of those very useful pointcut designators I find.

That should be if(false). I'm aware that other constructs like the one
you suggest also work, but I was specifically looking for some "empty"
pointcut. I like the simplicity of it.
