Pervasive Query Support in the Concern Manipulation Environment

Queries play a fundamental role in aspect-oriented software development (AOSD). They are used to find and define concerns, and to specify how concerns are to be woven together. The Concern Manipulation Environment (CME) is an open-source environment intended to support AOSD across the software lifecycle and to provide an integrated development environment for developers using AOSD This paper describes the pervasive query support CME provides for use by all components and tools within the environment, though both its query language (Panther) and its query implementation framework (PUMA).
