Applying already compiled aspect JARs

In order to apply already compiled aspects to your own sources you need do setup all the JAR files you would like to weave in the plugin configuration as shown below.

Note: The artifacts you reference must exist as dependencies in your project.

<project>

  <dependencies>
    ...
    <dependency>
      <groupId>org.aspectj</groupId>
      <artifactId>aspectjrt</artifactId>
