The Eclipse Java Compiler passes the JCK tests. (Java Compatibility Kit ->
the tests to pass to be allowed to call something "Java" officially).
The exact handling of generics has differed between the javac and ecj
several times already for corner cases. There have been cases where ecj
was right and javac wrong (e.g. Bug 156183). Search for JDT bugs with
"generics" in the summary to get an idea (note that Eclipse 3.1 introduced
Java 5 support).

My understanding from the Eclipse member companies that are JCK licensees is
that Eclipse 3.4 passes the Java 6 compiler JCK, which does include
annotation processing tests. Certainly our intention is to be compatible
with javac with regard to annotation processing.
That said, the JCK tests the command-line compiler (ecj) and there are some
differences between the ecj implementation of annotation processing and the
IDE implementation; not with regard to the typesystem, but with regard to
Filer, Messager, and the other platform-related parts of the API. In
particular, there are some Filer methods that are unimplemented in the IDE
implementation, simply because we were focused on trying to be compatible at
the command line and in the typesystem APIs.
If you have specific problems or incompatibilities, please do file a bug
against JDT/APT. At this point I'm a one-person part-time volunteer "team",
and I can use all the testing help that I can get.
