Eos: Instance-Level Aspects for Integrated System Design

PDF Download Download Paper


This paper makes two contributions: a generalization of AspectJ-like languages with first-class aspect instances and instance-level advising, and a mapping of the mediator style for integrated system design into this space. We present Eos as a prototype language design and implementation. It extends C# with AspectJ-like constructs, first-class aspect instances and instance-level advising. These features enable a direct mapping of mediators to aspect instances, with modularity improved, insofar as components need not declare, announce, or register for events.
