Annotations with source retention are generated in bytecode

Issue #281 resolved
Jesper Öqvist created an issue

ExtendJ 8.1.0-27-gcd7effa Java SE 5

The Trait annotation in the following example should not be generated in the bytecode output for the class An6:

import java.lang.annotation.*;

@Trait("magical") public class An6 {
  public static void main(String[] args) {

@interface Trait {
  String value() default "";

Expected result: no annotations for class An6 in bytecode.

Actual result: the bytecode contains the Trait annotation:

javap -v tmp/An6.class
