You are damn right, JBoss AOP is working only for JBoss and the standalone pack is only good at hello world example.
It should have been stated clearer by JBoss team: demo purpose only. I see no mention of future plan explaining JBoss standalone AOP roadmap, and I don't think JBoss has an advantage to maintain such a thing except for educational purpose.
Read a complete study on the JBoss standalone AOP on my stuff - sorry for the add. I just want the thing to be clearer: JBoss AOP standalone is only for demo purpose.
