Spring AOP uses either JDK dynamic proxies or CGLIB to create the proxy for a given target object. If the target object to be proxied, does not implement any interfaces then a CGLIB proxy will be created. In this situation if CGLIB is not present in the classpath following exception will be thrown

org.springframework.aop.framework.AopConfigException: Cannot proxy target class because CGLIB2 is not available. Add CGLIB to the class path or specify proxy interfaces.
