Re: [aspectj-users] Advice on Constructors With Subclasses

Hi all,
I also stumbled upon this problem. In fact, I think AspectJ is missing
something here. There should be a way to say after "the object has been
completely initialized". That is because I might want to advice the
constructor of an abstract class and call abstract methods, which will
probably fail if the advice is executed after the abstract class
constructor instead of after the concrete class constructor. Using the
call instead of execution is a solution, but limited to the situation
where the aspects are consistently applied, which could not be the case
if I'm programming my own jar using AOP but then using it in a
non-aspectj system. In fact, using "execution", AspectJ will add the
code to my own classes, while using call requires the client code of my
library to be weaved.
