I updated our cvs with your fix. I also added it to PerJoinpointAdvice. What sort of performance do you see with the fix in?
performance went from 2,000/sec to around 2,000,000/sec - pretty dramatic. HProf showed that init() is introspecting the class to interrogate its attributes, methods etc. This also involves alot of string manip.
Any idea when the next release of jboss-aop will be ?
check jira.jboss.com under the jboss aop project. You'll see a roadmap that tells you what versions will be released when.
