Java developers typically need to store objects of a given type in a data structure such as an array. An efficient technique to achieve this goal is available in Java 8 by adding type and repeating annotations to your Java application. The type annotation permits the developer to use an annotation in place of a class reference. The repeating annotation, @Repeatable, calls out an annotated class that serves as the container for the objects. To understand how to add type and repeating annotations to Java 8 code, follow these 10 steps.
