Matching against specific methods from classes from multiple packages
I am trying to write a pointcut expression that will allow a method in an aspect class to be invoked based upon matching a variable class structure & specific method names. An example of what I'm trying to achieve is as follows:
Classes to be matched on by pointcut expression:
I have tried the following pointcut expressions (which don't appear to work):
I have also thought about making all the DAOs extend an abstract class which in turn implements and interface and writing a rule based upon this, but I'd appreciate knowing if I can write a generic pointcut expression which can do regular expression matching on the beginning and ending of package structures, combined with a regular expression on the class name and a named method i.e. add?
Appreciate your advise.

Please use [ code[/code] tags when posting code that way it remains readable.
Your second pointcut is wrong so that will never match (it will only match a class named Dao which has an add method). Also read my other reply as to when and where aspects apply...
I strongly suggest a read of the reference guid eon how Spring AOP works. Also the pointcut isn't a regular expression it is writting in the pointcut language (so I suggest a readup on AspectJ as well)...
