Abstract: Although the fact that AOP has been proposed since quite a few years, the industrial adoption of this paradigm is not widespread in spite of the benefits hoped and promised for software architectures. The main goal of our work is to promote the adoption of AOP by industrial developers. We want to provide adapted solutions allowing those professionals to embrace AOP without having to sacrifice their processes, practices and tools. We seek practical solutions to allow them to reach their performance, quality, deployment and maintainability goals. To better identify and understand the real needs of teams using Agile processes, our work is focus on Agile environments. In fact, Agile processes encourage numerous practices and principles that could be affected by the usage of AOP in such projects. For instance, this is the case for software testing who is largely embraced the Agile community as a way of sustaining the acceptation of change over time. Our first step was to conduct an exploratory study to identify what could be the irritants for Agile teams who want to use AOP for the first time. Considering those results, we undertook our main contribution consisting to produce a solution to help unit testing of aspects. To do so, we developed and made available a framework to create and weave Mocks with aspects to help isolate aspects for testing purposes. The framework was designed to integrate easily with practices and tools commonly used in the industry by Agile teams.
