Noob question - reading that AspectJ helps support more modular development. Hear/read the same thing about OSGi.

Are they competitive frameworks? Comparable? Friendly and you can use both if you want? Is this another EJB/JEE vs Spring battle in the making? Just sort of curious.

AOP does not focus on modular design, but it is about aspect management.

You can use both if you want, because they are different things.

I agree with Kengkaj. Essentially, OSGi and AOP address a different set of problems and as such they can very happily co-exists.
