Types of AOP advice

There are five types of advice in spring AOP:

  1. Before advice: Advice code to be executes before to joint point

  2. After returning advice: Advice code to be executed after a join point completes normally.

  3. After throwing advice: Advice to be executed if a method exits by throwing an exception.

  4. After advice: Advice to be executed regardless of the means by which a join point exits (normal or exceptional return).

  5. Around advice: Advice that surrounds a join point such as a method invocation. This is the most powerful kind of advice. Around advice can perform custom behavior before and after the method invocation. It is also responsible for choosing whether to proceed to the join point or to shortcut the advised method execution by returning its own return value or throwing an exception.
