Because the "current" isn't working.
By the way, Mike, do you mean that there is no pointcut capable of advising all called/executed internal methods?
I've been trying to log all methods that are called in my controller that extends SimpleFormController. And by that I mean calling all inherited methods, including the finalones. Is that possible?
Not with basic Spring AOP. You will need a fullblown AOP solution, like AspectJ, for that in combination with loadtime or compile time weaving.
