This question is about new Java 1.5 new feature metadata annotations.
In this document:  http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/releases/j2se15 I read the following:

-----------------------

With a metadata processing tool, many repetitive coding steps could be reduced to a concise metadata tag. For example, the remote interface required when accessing a JAX-RPC service implementation could be implemented as follows:

Before

public interface PingIF extends Remote {
      public void ping() throws RemoteException;
  }

  public class Ping implements PingIF {
     public void ping() {
     }
  }


After

public class Ping {
     public @remote void ping() {
     }
  }


--------------------------

Does that mean that Java has the mechanism to automatically create the remote interface when you write "@remote" before a method? I've been looking for the "remote" annotation through the 1.5 API, with no luck. Or it means that Java 1.5 metadata provides you with a mechanism to create a piece of code whose result is that?.
If it's the latter, do you guys know any tool that does that?.

JSR 175 states that you could indicate what methods are designed for remote access http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=175. If I were you I would wait for the official release before I can be 100% sure what annotation keywords are supported.
