I think that a chronological order of events should describe what happened :
Issue #1 10:55 15/09/2008 - I try to find a solution to retrieving annotations of a field http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5331440
Issue #211:13 15/09/2008 - I learn that this can be done using the Field class, so I got looking for a way to getting all the fields http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5331441
Issue #3 13:15 15/09/2008 - I find a solution which is nearly working and post the last issue I have. http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5331475
Issue #313:26 15/09/2008 - thomas.behr helps me with the issue mentioned from thread 5331475 http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10424090#10424090
Issue #2 14:32 15/09/2008 - You (kajbj) comment that I need to use suggested solution. Please note that when I posted this I didn't know about the "right" solution.
Issue #2 15:01 15/09/2008 - I thank you and link to an example where I implemented the search. I still don't know if the solution I found was the correct one.
Please understand that I had no intention to create unnecessary hassle.
