  • Since Equinox Aspects is not tightly bound to AspectJ weaving only, you could re-use the base infrastructure to hook any kind of bytecode modifier into the Equinox runtime - and reuse the caching of Equinox Aspects at the same time.

  • The JIT emits bytecode which is then compiled to native code by the platform JIT (the PyPy JIT for the native backend directly emits assembler).
