Meta ‘Documented’ Annotation

The ‘@documented’ annotation indicates that an annotation with this type should be documented by the javadoc tool. By default, annotations are not included in javadoc. But if @Documented is used, it then will be processed by javadoc-like tools and the annotation type information will also be included in the generated document.
