Abstract. Over the recent years aspect-oriented programming (AOP) has found
increasing interest among researchers in software engineering. Aspects are
abstractions which capture and localise cross-cutting concerns. Although
persistence has been considered as an aspect of a system aspects in the
persistence domain in general and in databases in particular have been
largely ignored. This paper brings the notion of aspects to object-oriented
databases. Some cross-cutting concerns are identified and addressed using
aspects. An aspect-oriented extension of an OODB is discussed and various
open issues pointed out.
