Check If The Aspect Was Applied

Let’s say you have an aspect defined that will be applied to a class:

<bean id="someComponent"
      class="org.dotkam.SomeComponent" />
 
<aop:config>
	<aop:aspect ref="someAspect">
		<aop:around method="someMethod"
                            pointcut="execution(public * org.dotkam.SomeComponent.*(..))" />
	</aop:aspect>
</aop:config>

and you of course have “proxy-target-class” set to “true”:

<aop:aspectj-autoproxy proxy-target-class="true"/>

Here is how to check if the aspect was applied:

import static org.junit.Assert.assertTrue;
import net.sf.cglib.proxy.Enhancer;
 
  ... ...
@Resource(name="someComponent")
SomeComponent someComponent
 
  ... ...
assertTrue( Enhancer.isEnhanced( someComponent.getClass() ) );

Behind the scenes it is enhanced with CGLIB’s Enhancer that has a convenient isEnhanced method.

Useful when developing aspects.

NOTE: The above is true given, of course, that this is THE ONLY aspect applied to this component.
