Many frameworks these days employs annotations as a mean to configure the application (Seam, Spring, Stripes...) and some use it for code generation.
For the annotation-based configuration framework, how it uses annotations to build its own 'configurations data'? via reflection?
What about annotation-based code generation framework?
What is the APT and when to use it?
