IBM is losing a leader in the area of aspect-oriented programming to an open-source startup.

Adrian Colyer, a senior member of the technical staff at IBMs Hursley, England, facility, said he resigned his position with the systems giant to join London-based Interface21, a startup focusing on the open-source Spring Framework for building Java applications. Colyer will assume the position of chief scientist at Interface21.

According to PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) documents describing AOP, "AOP introduces a new unit of modularity, called an aspect, that is not present in other types of programming.

Colyer is the head of the AspectJ project, an open-source project delivering a framework for building aspect-oriented applications.
