Face-off: AOP+LMP vs. legacy software

06302.AdamsBram.Paper.888.pdf (0.2 MB)


Our presentation relates on a first attempt to see if aspect-oriented programming (AOP) can really help with the revitalisation of legacy business software. By means of four realistic case studies covering reverse engineering, restructuring and integration, we discuss the applicability of the aspect-oriented paradigm in the context of two major programming languages for such environments: Cobol and C. For each case, we consider both advantages and disadvantages.
