I am a new bee to Java5 environemt. I am reading annotation.
I am unable to understand the meta tag s? it is written that "Annotations are the meta-tag that you will use in your code to give it some life".
What is a meta-tag? Please explain it?

Meta-tag here might denote that annotation gives information about the code. General examples include @SuppressWarnings("the argument") and @override where you tell the compiler to suppress the warnings and denote a method overrides its super class' method respectively.
Since it tells the META information they are just probably referring it as META tags...
