This project aims at integrating AspectJ into Eclipse. For now, only ajc has been integrated.

The plugin had been tested under Eclipse 2.0 - M4 build 20020321 and F1 build 20020521 - with AspectJ 1.0.3. The aspectjrt.jar and aspectjtools.jar are provided with the first releases (see release note - release 0.7.2 ).

I'd like to thank Thomas Papiernik for his help and his advices.

Please visit the the Ajc-for-Eclipse project at Sourceforge download the latest release. You can also browse the cvs repository here

Also please note IBM's announced they're working on the same plugin, so we dont plan anymore to integrate the AjDebug and AjDoc Tools.

Please report any problems to
