Logging with Spring’s Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP)

All HelloController method calls produce an INFO level log entry containing approximate execution time, similar to the below examples.

2017-10-04 20:14:02.388  INFO 29463 --- [nio-8080-exec-5] com.example.helloworld.HelloController   : Execution Time: ResponseEntity com.example.helloworld.HelloController.getSample() executed in 23 ms

2017-10-04 20:13:59.034  INFO 29463 --- [nio-8080-exec-3] com.example.helloworld.HelloController   : Execution Time: ResponseEntity com.example.helloworld.HelloController.getSamples(int) executed in 38 ms
