Abstract: The paradigm of Aspect-Oriented Programming is currently being studied and matured. Many aspectoriented languages have been proposed, including Object Teams for Java (OT/J). However, to date few studies were carried out to assess the contribution of the various languages available and compare their relative advantages and disadvantages. The aim of this dissertation is to contribute to fill this gap. In the past, implementations of design patterns in Java and AspectJ were successfully used as case studies to derive conclusions on the relative advantages and disadvantages of the language under consideration. This dissertation follows this approach, with the development of a suitable collection of examples based on the well-known Gang-of-Four design patterns. Two repositories of implementations in OT/J of the complete collection of 23 Gang-of-Four design patterns have been developed, to be used as a basis for subsequent analysis. The scenarios used for the examples are based on Java repositories by independent authors, freely available on the Web. Based on the repositories developed, an analysis of the modularizations obtained with OT/J is presented and compared with the results obtained using Java and AspectJ. OT/J provides direct language support for 3 of the patterns. 20 patterns yielded separate modules for the patterns, of which 10 modules proved to be reusable. Only in 1 of the patterns, no significant differences between Java and OT/J were obtained.
