Rajan, Hridesh (2005) Nu: Enabling Modularity in Multilingual, Multienvironment, Distributed Systems. Technical Report, Computer Science, Iowa State University.
The contribution of this work is a novel aspect-oriented programming model that we call Nu. The Nu programming
model adds only one new concept, join point dispatch, to
the object-oriented programming model. No new programming
language constructs are added. The constructs in existing
aspect languages are expressed in terms of join point
dispatch resulting in a significant simplification of aspect
languages. We make two claims about the potential benefits
of our approach. First, that it will enable transparent
modularization of even those crosscutting concerns that
transcend the language and environment boundaries. Second,
that it will simplify the AOP language model resulting
in the ease-of-use, ease-of-learning, and reduced cost to build supporting tools.
