    • Important Note: The ABC compiler includes a module system inspired by my Open Modules proposal (Ongkingco et al., AOSD '06). However, this implementation does not enforce the critical property of Open Modules: that clients will not be affected by semantics-preserving changes to the implementation of a module. In order to obtain this property, it is important that clients of a module only advise exposed join points through named pointcuts in the module interface. External aspects must never refer to internal join points except through those names. I mention this here because the difference has led to some to think that Open Modules does not enforce this property.
