Backport175 is backport of the Java 5 annotations (JSR-175) specification. Making strongly typed annotation available or Java 1.3/1.4 platforms. They are bytecode compatible with Java 5 annotations making them available for use by tools etc. It has two separate modules: * Compiler - which compiles the backport175 annotations and puts them into the bytecode of the class (compatible with regular Java 5 RuntimeVisible annotations). * Reader - which allows you to read the backport175 annotations as well as regular Java 5 annotation through one single uniformed API. The reader also has an API for runtime management, which allows you to update the bytecode at runtime and have your changes propagated.
