import java.util.Map;
import java.util.WeakHashMap;

import org.aspectj.lang.JoinPoint;

import com.blogspot.miguelinlas3.aspectj.cache.marker.Cachable;

 * This simple aspect simulates the behaviour of a very simple cache

	Object around(Cachable cachable): cache(cachable){
		String evaluatedKey = this.evaluateKey(cachable.scriptKey(), thisJoinPoint);
			System.out.println("Cache hit for key " + evaluatedKey);
			return this.cache.get(evaluatedKey);
		System.out.println("Cache miss for key " + evaluatedKey);
		Object value = proceed(cachable);
		cache.put(evaluatedKey, value);

	protected String evaluateKey(String key, JoinPoint joinPoint) {
		// TODO add some smart staff to allow simple scripting in @Cachable annotation
		return key;
	protected Map<String, Object> cache = new WeakHashMap<String, Object>();

Example code from Wikipedia:

pointcut set() : execution(* set*(..) ) && this(Point);
