abc - The AspectBench Compiler

Laurie Hendren - McGill University

The Sable research group from McGill University and the Programming Tools Group from Oxford University have recently developed abc, a research framework for the AspectJ programming language. The abc compiler is publicly-avaliable under the GNU LGPL license. The toolkit has been designed with research in mind, for both experimentation with new aspect-oriented language features and research into optimizations for aspect-oriented languages.

This talk will introduce AspectJ language, present the highlights of the abc compiler framework, and discuss some preliminary experimental data comparing the performance of the existing ajc compiler with the abc compiler.
