What is aspect-oriented software development (AOSD)?
Aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) is a software design solution that addresses modularity problems that other software approaches such as procedural, structured, and object-oriented programming (OOP) do not resolve properly. AOSD complements, rather than replaces, these other types of software approaches.
AOSD is also known as aspect-oriented programming (AOP).
AOSD functions are as follows:
Consider a subset of post-object programming technologies
Better software design support by isolating application business logic from supporting and secondary functions
Offers complementary benefits and can be used with other agile processes and coding standards
Focus - Identification, presentation and specification of concerns, which can also be cross-functional
Provides better modularization support for software designs, thereby reducing software development, development, and maintenance costs
Modularization principle based on the functionalities and processes involved
Because concerns are encapsulated in different modules, the localization of crossing issues is better promoted and handled
Provides tools and software coding techniques to provide modular content support at the source code level
Promotes the reusability of code that is used for the modularization of cross-sectional tasks
Smaller code size because cross-cut issues need to be addressed
Reduced efficiency due to increased overhead
