Leasing provides a robust mechanism to manage reclamation of remote objects in mobile ad hoc networks. However, applying the leasing semantics on each remote object reference places a considerable burden on developers. Low-level leasing management details can be abstracted away as much as possible by means of dedicated language support. This paper focusses on the software engineering issues that arise using language support for leasing. We observe that the concerns dealing with leasing are inherently crosscutting and argue in favour of a modularization of such concerns in an aspect. We propose a domain-specific aspect language (DSAL) for leasing which provides dedicated means to express the leasing concerns separately from the base functionality.
