    Mixin class at the class level

      1/Is there a way to apply a mixin class at the class level and not
      only at the instance level ?

      2/It looks like that the same mixin class can be instantiated more than
      once per instance based on class inheritance.

      For example :
      if the class A inherits from class B and both supposed to have attached the mixin class C,when I create an instance of A,two instances of C are created .Is is expected ?

          1) PER-VM and PER-Instance are supported. It would be per-class that would have to be supported.

            addNotificationListener on an RMIAdaptor throws the following exception when adding the notification listener I put in my previous message:

            Just for the record the complete MyRMIListener code:
            package be.ugent.pbackx.client;
            import org.jboss.jmx.adaptor.rmi.RMINotificationListener;
            public class MyRMIListener implements RMINotificationListener {
             public void handleNotification(javax.management.Notification notification, Object obj) {
             System.out.println("\nReceived notification: " + notification);

            • 3. Re: Mixin class at the class level

              1) If you want a singleton mixin, then you can put anything you want in the construction XML element. So, the mixin reference can be set by calling a method or setting it to a singleton field of some class.

              2) Are you applying the introduction twice? How does C++ work? I want to model virtual inheritance of C++ so I guess I have to change the behavior. As a workaround, I guess you have to make sure that the introduction expression has a !$instanceof{MixinInterface}

                1/OK for the workaround.
                Do u think that the scope for a Mixin class could not be supported
                at the infrastructure level ?(future version of JBOSS-AOP)

                2/ Thx .It does work...FYI ,the full expression for my user-case.

                    Any plan to support per class scope for Introduction in the near future ?
                    Thx Claude

                    FYI.,what Aspectwerkz does in this area :

                    <introduction-def name="mixin"
                    deployment-model=perJVM | perClass | perInstance | perThread />
