Annotation Type Stereotype

    public @interface Stereotype
    A stereotype is the way to determine a specific behavior of a type.

    Applies to properties.

    For example, a name, a comment, a description, etc. all correspond to the Java type java.lang.String but you surely wish validators, default sizes, visual editors, etc. different in each case and you need to tune finer; you can do this assigning a stereotype to each case. That is, you can have the next sterotypes NAME, MEMO or DESCRIPTION and assign them to your properties.
