Annotations with runtime retention are not available at runtime. Example:

class Foo {
  def foo() {}

assert Foo.class.getAnnotations().size() > 0 // fails
assert Foo.class.getMethod("foo", null).getAnnotations().size() > 0 // fails

Annotations shipping with Groovy are also affected. There might be a bigger problem here, because the old/new Groovy Eclipse plugin has the same problem (even though not 100% reproducible). When inspecting the class files produced by the Groovy Eclipse plugin, I found that the annotations aren't even in the class files.

gaelyk has the same problem. All annotations on dynamically compiled Groovy code are lost.

Also, annotation defaults don't work. If an annotation default is not overridden, a compile error occurs.
