Support Annotation type by annotations

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      JVM Specification

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Documentation says that annotation is one of allowed types to use in annotation declaration. The problem is that it accepts only inheritors and we are not able to use Annotation.class as type. It could improve confined annotation system and enter a lot of possibilities. A lot of frameworks based on DI have to use primitive subannotations, Annotation type could allow to pass all annotations and develop this area.
