Is anyone here actually using Aspect-Oriented programming in a real world (not school project) development project? If so, what has your experience with it been so far; where has it helped, if it has helped and where, if any where, has it been more trouble than its worth?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I'm using AOP within the context of the Spring framework,
the application is the handling of transactions for creditcard purchases.
I favour AOP because it lets me specify declarative and very detailed what
the behaviour needs to be in a g.e. error situation.

looks quite convincing approach for AOP over OOPs
http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2011/01/aspect-oriented-programming-spring-aop.html

But couldn't found any influential real large implementation of this concept? is it mature enough?

I doubt that they're listening anymore. That thread was last updated six years ago. http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/DontWakeTheZombies

However, I have a little project running at the moment that uses Spring Data and Neo4j and it leverages heavily on AOP to the point where I had to install AspectJ plugins to my IDE.

As far as do-it-yourself AOP is concerned, I don't think it ever really took off, but it has been hard at work undercover in the Spring Framework for many years.
