The Aspect service has a flag to ignore transformation errors. I had to have this switch because a bunch of Apache classes use their own classloaders and don't hook well into Javassist's class locator.
Do you have a simple testcase you can send me to reproduce the error (with hot deploy of precompiled AOP)? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your patience.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I just sent you a testcase by e-mail, which hopefully will recreate the exception at your end.
didn't get a chance to look at this before the beta3 release. Sorry. I'll take a look soon.
This issue is very similar to what I had posted earlier and the solution that I resorted to was during the undeploy/re-deploy time call AspectManager.getAdvisors().remove(instrumentedClassName).
However Bill have'nt tried the newer version of AOP yet in which you had mentioned that I could avoid this call.
