Re: [cdt-dev] Natively Compiled Eclipse Snapshot Available

I'm not an expert (although that is on my to do list :-), but I believe it 
does byte code insertion in a class loader, i.e. at run time.

AspectJ is now hosted on (

What kind of wacky stuff?

We already handle a fair number of wacky things.  We're still a little
ways away from perfect compliance with things like Java binary
compatibility, but you have to do pretty good here to even run eclipse
at all.  Andrew is starting work on our new "binary compatibility
ABI", which will let us completely conform.  If it is valid code,
we'll (eventually :-) support it.

Anyway, as far as I know nobody has tried AspectJ with gcj.  Is
AspectJ free software?  Maybe we can find somebody to look at it.
