This article summarises the discussions that took place as part of a panel at the 10th Early Aspects workshop held in conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD ’07), Vancouver, BC, Canada. The panel was chaired by Awais Rashid. The panelists included: Maja D’Hondt, Anthony Finkelstein, Gregor Kiczales and Ana Moreira. The discussions focused on understanding the relationship between early aspects and those that are tackled by aspect-oriented designs and programs. The panel concluded that there was a gap between problem understanding that is the focus of early aspects and problem solving which is the goal of aspect-oriented design and programming approaches. This gap needs to be bridged in order to address the modularity mismatch problem which compounds the complexity of modern software-based systems.
