When setting up the LTW and my own transactional aspect, I came across the strange behavior of AnnotationTransactionAspect. 

The test project is available on the github. Consists of SpringBootApplication, Service and Repository. On Service and Repository using annotations Transactional. Application settings consist of:

@EnableLoadTimeWeaving(aspectjWeaving = EnableLoadTimeWeaving.AspectJWeaving.AUTODETECT)
@EnableTransactionManagement(mode = AdviceMode.ASPECTJ)

And in aop.xml:

<weaver options="-showWeaveInfo">
  1. When you start with VM options:

CGLIB proxy for Repository is created and AnnotationTransactionAspect weaves to all CGLIB proxy public methods, include toString, hashCode etc. And AnnotationTransactionAspect doesn't weave to MyServiceMethod

  1. When you start with VM options:

It won't run because need to specify a custom LoadTimeWeaver or start your Java virtual machine with Spring's agent.

  1. When you start with both VM options:

AnnotationTransactionAspect weaves to MyServiceMethod, MyRepositoryMethod (like expected) and to all MyRepository CGLIB proxy methods (include second weaves to MyRepositoryMethod).

It seems like bad behavior AnnotationTransactionAspect or poor documentation for LTW and agents: spring-instrument, aspectjweaver.


Affects: 5.0.8
