Annotations are introduced in java 1.5 and the same annotation processing technique has been implemented in servlets to support annotations for configuring and other process. This reduced the burden of configuring xml files and more. For example @WebServlet,@InitParam etc.

Servlet annotations were introduced with Servlets 3.0 and are not available to earlier versions. See the Servlets 3 Spec for information.
