Uses of Package
org.codehaus.jackson.annotate

Packages that use org.codehaus.jackson.annotate
org.codehaus.jackson Main public API classes of the core streaming JSON processor: most importantly JsonFactory used for constructing JSON parser (JsonParser) and generator (JsonParser) instances. 
org.codehaus.jackson.annotate Public core annotations, most of which are used to configure how Data Mapping/Binding works. 
org.codehaus.jackson.map Contains basic mapper (conversion) functionality that allows for converting between regular streaming json content and Java objects (beans or Tree Model: support for both is via ObjectMapper class, as well as convenience methods included in JsonParser 
org.codehaus.jackson.map.annotate Annotations that directly depend on Mapper classes (not just Jackson core) and are used for configuring Data Mapping functionality. 
org.codehaus.jackson.map.introspect Functionality needed for Bean introspection, required for detecting accessors and mutators for Beans, as well as locating and handling method annotations. 
org.codehaus.jackson.map.jsontype Package that contains interfaces that define how to implement functionality for dynamically resolving type during deserialization. 
org.codehaus.jackson.map.jsontype.impl Package that contains standard implementations for TypeResolverBuilder and TypeIdResolver
org.codehaus.jackson.schema Classes needed for JSON schema support (currently just ability to generate schemas using serialization part of data mapping) 
 

Classes in org.codehaus.jackson.annotate used by org.codehaus.jackson
JsonCreator
          Marker annotation that can be used to define constructors and factory methods as one to use for instantiating new instances of the associated class.
JsonProperty
          Marker annotation that can be used to define a non-static method as a "setter" or "getter" for a logical property (depending on its signature), or non-static object field to be used (serialized, deserialized) as a logical property.
 

Classes in org.codehaus.jackson.annotate used by org.codehaus.jackson.annotate
JacksonAnnotation
          Meta-annotation (annotations used on other annotations) used for marking all annotations that are part of Jackson package.
JsonAutoDetect.Visibility
          Enumeration for possible visibility thresholds (minimum visibility) that can be used to limit which methods (and fields) are auto-detected.
JsonMethod
          Enumeration used to define kinds of methods that annotations like JsonAutoDetect apply to.
JsonTypeInfo.As
          Definition of standard type inclusion mechanisms for type metadata.
JsonTypeInfo.Id
          Definition of different type identifiers that can be included in JSON during serialization, and used for deserialization.

JsonCreator
          Marker annotation that can be used to define constructors and factory methods as one to use for instantiating new instances of the associated class.
JsonValue
          Marker annotation similar to XmlValue that indicates that results of the annotated "getter" method (which means signature must be that of getters; non-void return type, no args) is to be used as the single value to serialize for the instance.
