Hi,

Can anybody expalin me what is "ANNOTATION".
I read this abt it...... but still finding it difficult to understand

Introduced in J2SE 5.0, annotations provide a way for programmers to instruct the compiler on how to handle certain situations. For example, an annotation can indicate that a particular method or class should be overridden in a subclass or that certain compiler error messages shouldn't be printed.

If anyone ccan help me out.... i will really appreciate
