It's mostly used for configuration purposes. Instead of using bold XML people now tend to use annotations.

Quick example



this is a mapping between the property name and the column in the SQL table. As you can see, much simpler than using an XML file.

For basic language questions like this, the Sun Java Tutorial should always be your first stop: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/java/javaOO/annotations.html

Have a look at Annotations in Sun's Java tutorials. It starts with examples that show how annotations can be useful.

I believe Maneesh said that because you had asked the same question earlier and even at that time, you had been encouraged to Search First.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
