"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please note it is a class level annotation I am talking about and not a method.

You should be able to do it like this...

@Pointcut("within(@package.name.monitor *)")
public void targetClasses() {}

Open in new window


And then follow with your normal pointcuts, etc.
