Confirmed Join Points

Adoption of AOSD is hindered by the fact that it breaks traditional notions of class ownership. An oftrepeated objection is that the developer responsible for a class (the class owner1) no longer has control over the details of the class, because weaving could result in separately-written aspect code affecting class semantics. Modern environment support, such as provided by AJDT [2], helps by showing the sites of weaving impact, and making it easy to navigate to the relevant aspect code, but this still does not give the class owner control.
