I'm re-implementing some tools previously implemented in Java in Wolfram Language. Is there any metadata-holding mechanisms in Mathematica programming similar to Java annotations?

    $\begingroup$ For those of us unfamiliar with Java could you perhaps summarize the key features, differences, or advantages of Java annotations over traditional comments, etc.? $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Aug 13 '14 at 22:45

    $\begingroup$ I don't know if you consider these to be similar, but for smaller projects I'd use messages, e.g. f::meta = "\n Author: Some One \n Date: 2014.8.14" and then Message[f::meta], and for bigger project I'd create documentations see $\endgroup$ – Karsten 7. Aug 13 '14 at 22:58
