It has been demonstrated that certain design concerns, such as access control, synchronization, and object interactions cannot be expressed in current OO languages as a separate software module [4, 7]. These so-called crosscutting concerns generally result in implementations scattered over multiple operations. If a crosscutting concern cannot be treated as a single module, its adaptability and reusability are likely to be reduced. A number of programming techniques have been proposed to express crosscutting concerns, for example, adaptive programming , AspectJ , Hyperspaces , and Composition Filters . Here, we present the Composition Filters (CF) model and illustrate how it addresses evolving crosscutting concerns.
