You can find tutorials on the net. I'm not sure that you really expect someone to type a complete tutorial here.

Maybe checking the Oracle tutorials--if you have specific questions you're more likely to get assistance.

Start here. Also there is a whole chapter about annotations in Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java, but only in the 4th edition, ie the edition you actually have to pay for.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
