These aren't too many disadvantages of annotations over XML and vice versa.

Usually selecting one over the other is just a matter of what the team is comfortable with.

There are a few limitation to what annotation and configuration classes can do - for which you might have fall back on XML.

Google might give a few more details - spring annotations vs xml
