Abstract : Aspect languages define ways to modularize croscutting concerns by means of expressing them as aspects. The expressiveness of an aspect language is very much affected by the expressiveness of the language it uses to describe pointcuts. This is due to the fact that pointcuts define what is crosscutting in a crosscutting concern. We present a mechanism to express type-safe source code templates in pure Java that improves the expressiveness of pointcut languages, and an extension to AspectJ that uses templates to enhance its pointcut designator language.
