Packt Publishing has published the first book dedicated to Spring AOP: Spring 2.5 Aspect Oriented Programming.
This book by SpringFramework Italian User Group founder Massimiliano Dessė, covers Spring AOP in detail by explaining its motivation and feature set.
"Developing powerful web applications with clean, manageable code makes the maintenance process much easier. Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) is the easiest and quickest way to achieve such results. The combined power of Spring and AOP gives a powerful and flexible platform to develop and maintain feature-rich web applications quickly.
This book will help you to write clean, manageable code for your Java applications quickly, utilizing the combined power of Spring and AOP. You will master the concepts of AOP by developing several real-life AOP-based applications with the Spring Framework.
This book will teach you everything you need to know to use AOP with Spring. It starts by explaining the AOP features of Spring and then moves ahead with configuring Spring AOP and using its core classes, with lot of examples. It moves on to explain the AspectJ support in Spring. Then you will develop a three-layered example web application designed with Domain-Driven Design (DDD) and built with Test-Driven Development methodology using the full potential of AOP for security, concurrency, caching, and transactions."
