Spring AOP question

I am on the first chapter of Spring in Action and I am trying to learn the AOP part now. What I am trying to do is make marge speak after homer eats, but it is not doing that now. The contents of my simpsons.xml file is below, see any problems?

Both marge and homer inherit from a Simpsons abstract class which defines these two methods

If you could tell us what kind of problem you're facing, may be we will be able to help you.

In particular, you may share if it produces a compile-time error, a run-time stack-trace, or if the advice is simply not getting executed at all without any apparent errors.

Just a suggestion - I usually define my pointcut(s) by using <aop: pointcut> element(s) directly inside <aop:config> element (In your example, the <aop: pointcut> element is inside the <aop:aspect> element). Later on, I declare <aop:aspect> elements inside the same <aop:config> element to define the aspects. This works well for me!
