doclet for @Override that eclipse will honor?

I use GWT and one of the few downside of GWT is that on the client side it won't allow you to use annotations.

So, as a result I get a bunch of warning messages when I have methods that override superclass methods. I want to use the @Override annotation and am not going to turn off the warning for everything.

I tried adding:
/**
  @Override
*/
in front of the methods, but eclipse doesn't seem to honor that.

Is it possible to use a doclet in place of the @Override annotation?

I am using the java 5 compiler. This is a GWT problem. At runtime it complains if the annotation is there.
