Annotations Not Working

Annotations on several of my beans are not getting called in JSF 2.0. One of my bean's annotations, however, are getting called. Any idea why that may be?

Here's a snippet of the bean that has an annotation being correct called. This bean is called when a page with a datatable loads.

Here is an example of a bean whose annotations are never called. It is a POJO bean rather than a backing bean as above. The bean is populated when a separate backing bean's method is called from a command button.

It would help if you'd mentioned which annotation is being "called".

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
