First observations of Eclipse AJDT plugin
I've just started my immersion into Eclipse (coming from IntelliJ IDEA 4.5) and one of the first plugins I wanted to work with in Eclipse was the AspectJ development tooling, AJDT. I'm using Eclipse 3.1M6 and I used the Software Update feature to hook in the latest release of AJDT. Wow!! Very cool stuff. Makes working with AspectJ aspects much easier. Still fumbling my way around Eclipse (and using the mouse way too much), but so far so good. I really like being able to visualize the pointcuts in the Cross References pane. The gutter icons are also a very nice touch.
