AspectC++ is a general purpose aspect-oriented language extension to C++. It is aimed to bring fully-fledged aspect-oriented programming (AOP) support in areas with strong demands on runtime efficiency and code density. This makes it possible to exploit the power of AOP for the domain of (deeply) embedded systems, where computation speed and available memory resources are strictly limited. AOP concepts are particularly useful for the development of scalable embedded system product lines. This

By covering the complete build cycle of configuration, compilation and installation, participants will understand, how easy it is to integrate AspectC++ with an existing tool chain. A presentation of the AspectC++ tools for Eclipse and the pure::variants variant-management system rounds up the demonstration.
