Aspect with Annotation error

I have an aspect configured for several method for some backend processes.
Now methods are getting increased with diverse package names.
I want to configure my aspect for a specific annotation which i can decorate to all the target methods.

I am using NetBeans 6.7.1, JDK 6, Spring 3.0 and AspectJ 1.6.5. I have set my aspect like this:

@Around("@annotation (com.myorg.ServiceMethod)")

When i try to run the application it shows me this error:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: error the @annotation pointcut expression is only supported at Java 5 compliance level or above
at org.springframework.aop.aspectj.AspectJExpressionPointcut.buildPointcutExpression(
at org.springframework.aop.aspectj.AspectJExpressionPointcut.checkReadyToMatch(
at org.springframework.aop.aspectj.AspectJExpressionPointcut.getClassFilter(

Any help?

Stupid question here, but what are you running it in. I mean I see you are developing in Netbeans, but at runtime are you running a server inside Netbeans, or a standalone server where that standalone server might not be using Java 5?

Just a wild guess.

Mark, how it is a stupid question?

I am not running any server. It is a simple standalone javase app which gives me error while loading the spring-config file.
I posted the error only after modifing the ant (build.xml) script to make source level 1.5.

Mark i am facing a problem.
I posed it here because i am using Spring AOP.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
