Configuration via Annotations
actually I am not really an advanced Java programmer, but I think that I do have to solve an advanced Java Problem :).
My current goal is to write a framework that needs to be configured via Annotations. In the last days I read a lot about annotations, how to "parse" them, and so on but still I don't have a clue on how to configure anything with it.
If I need to modify the source (and afaik the annotations are located in the source) , to my way of thinking the configuration via annotations is completely useless or better done in a configuration file. I am quite sure that I miss something essential I only don't know what.
Can please someone help me a bit or give me some hints or maybe even some book/paper/website/... suggestions.
Oh jea I need to do this for university so I can't modify the task.
Thank you a lot in advance.
