Android Annotation Processor suggest change

Creating and Using Custom Annotations

For creating custom annotations we need to decide

For this, we have built in custom annotations. Check out these mostly used ones:

@Target

@Retention

Creating Custom Annotation

@Retention(RetentionPolicy.SOURCE) // will not be available in compiled class   
@Target(ElementType.METHOD) // can be applied to methods only
@interface CustomAnnotation{  
      int value();    
}

Using Custom Annotation

class Foo{  
  @CustomAnnotation(value = 1)  // will be used by an annotation processor
  public void foo(){..}  
}

the value provided inside @CustomAnnotation will be consumed by an Annotationprocessor may be to generate code at compile time etc.
