Walter Harley

Annotations are a Java 5 language feature that let you add metadata to your code, in a rigorous, type-safe way that can be supported by the compiler. Annotations resemble javadoc in some regards, but are more tightly integrated into the Java language. Eclipse’s support for annotations has been deepening with each of the last few releases, and Eclipse 3.4 will be better still. Join members of the Eclipse JDT annotation processing team for an in-depth discussion of what annotations can do for you and how to work with them! We’ll discuss: We’ll try to leave some time for Q&A at the end of the talk, too. A basic understanding of the Java language will help you get the most out of this talk, but you do not need to know anything about Java 5 in particular.

Walter Harley is a senior software engineer on the BEA Weblogic Workshop Compiler Team, and a committer on the Eclipse APT project. Prior to this, he worked on XML data integration, cryptography, mainframe terminal emulation and macro assemblers. His interests include audio electronics, music, hiking, and pastry. He holds a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Johns Hopkins University.
