[aosd-discuss] Any AOP implementations using VM-hooks?

I know some parts of PROSE quite well. Weaving can be done at the moment
as a before and after pointcut. Sure there are also others like cflow
and field modifications.
Unfortunately the method replacement you are looking for is currently
not implemented in Prose, but it could also be done in the JVMDI.
Wool has a hybrid approach they use breakpoint weaving, which is excatly
the same as Prose. Additional Wool supports method replacement by using
the method class_redefine in the JDI. The hybrid approach allows to
choose breackpoint weaving for before/after pointcuts but also replacing
the method body and including the before/after aspect-advice or eaven
replace the body by a dispatcher.
