AspectJ Support in IJ10

The current AspectJ plugin in IJ is quite limited and in fact does not work that well.  I have had very simple pointcuts simply not work get advised properly: i got this validated by members of the aspectj forum.

Will IJ10 integrated AspectJ include
       a) more comprehensive support for AspectJ - beyond the Spring AOP
       b) Realtime visualization of advised methods. Right now, any time I make any change to pointcuts, I have to rebuild the entire project from scratch and then find out in runtime whether the
          methods are advised. That is clearly a non-usable scenario
        c) Fix bugs with methods not getting properly advised, even using the limited support of execution() pointcuts

I really like IJ, it has been my tool since V6 but clearly I can not mix IJ with AspectJ at this time. It would be really nice to not have to revert to eclipse just in order to use ADJT.

thanks,

Hello Stephen,

are you talking about bundled Spring-AOP plugin, or this one?

The non-bundled one that you provided the link. I am using the AspectJ Weaver.

Um... AspectJ Weaver is a third-party plugin Jetbrains is not responsible for.
If you have issues with AspectJ Support plugin then please specify what exactly isn't working for your (either here or even better in tracker).

Are there any plans to make the bundled one a superset of both the plugins?
