The XWeaver Development Environment (AXDT) is a Plug-In for the Eclipse IDE. It assists the development with XWeaver in various ways. It helps with creating and editing aspects and introduces an eclipse builder which does the weaving process in the background. Furthermore it assists the developer with several views that help to understand the relation between the base code and aspects. The Plug-In is not bound to a particular base code language such as C++ or Java and therefore is not dependent on language specific Plug-Ins such as the C/C++ Development Environment (CDT) or the Java Development Environment (JDT).
