This is really a Java question, better to ask in javaranch.com,
jguru.com or stackoverflow.com.
In Java, annotations are identifiers prefixed with the at-sign @ and
signal to the complier that something "special" is being done, asked
for, etc. with respect to a following syntagm (which might be one line,
one section, one method, etc.).
The compiler will look it up in its symbol table, open the relevant and
corresponding resource in JARs included for its reference, and generate
code or references as appropriate.
This is it from the 60,000-foot level. Ask for more depth at the places
Hope this helps.
