Gradle AspectJ plugin

Usage

Either build this project yourself, and include the .jar in your buildscript dependencies, or use our Maven repo. The plugin is applied using apply plugin: 'aspectj'. The version of AspectJ to use can be defined using either ext.aspectjVersion, or the aspectj extension's version attribute. If the AspectJ version is not set, version 1.8.12 is used as the default.

Something like this:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven {
            url "https://maven.eveoh.nl/content/repositories/releases"
        }
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath "nl.eveoh:gradle-aspectj:2.0"
    }
}

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

apply plugin: 'aspectj'

// Optionally
project.ext {
    aspectjVersion = '1.8.12'
}
// Or
aspectj {
    version = '1.8.12'
}

Note that version 2.0+ is only compatible with Gradle 4+. Use version 1.6 for earlier Gradle versions.

Use the aspectpath, ajInpath, testAspectpath and testAjInpath to specify external aspects or external code to weave:

dependencies {
    aspectpath "org.springframework:spring-aspects:${springVersion}"
}

By default, xlint: ignore is used. Specify a different value for the xlint variable of the compileAspect or compileTestAspect task to show AspectJ warnings:

compileAspect {
    xlint = 'warning'
}

It is possible to specify a different value for the maxmem variable of the compileAspect or compileTestAspect task to increase or decrease the max heap size:

compileAspect {
    maxmem = '1024m'
}

To specify additional ajc arguments, you can use additionalAjcArgs. If xlint or maxmem are also specified in additionalAjcArgs, the values in additionalAjcArgs will take precedence. For example, to preserve debug symbols,

compileAspect {
     additionalAjcArgs = ['debug' : '', 'X' : 'noInline', 'preserveAllLocals' : '']
}
