MetaClass supports runtime access to metadata associated with Java program elements or artefacts. The program elements include packages, classes, methods, and fields and each metadata element is referred to as an attribute. The attributes are usually specified in the Java source files as JavaDoc markup. The source file is then processed and the metadata is compiled into descriptors that MetaClass is capable of reading. These descriptors are then loaded at runtime to provide metadata about the program elements.
