Hi there,
Writing a proof-of-concept for a customer but hit upon the compiler
error "Retention cannot be resolved to a type"
This is a code excerpt:

@Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
@Target(ElementType.METHOD)
public @interface Mark { }

Any ideas? JDK 1.5.0 and freshly installed Eclipse 3.1M4. Everything is
running on W2K.

Thanks!

Dim Dimych

Forgot to tell that both and @Retention and @Target annotations are
producing the error message.
