      Description

      It would be nice if @RequestHeader could be used for a meta annotation. This would make it easier if a header was being used consistently throughout the entire application. For example, a user might do something like this:

       

      @Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
      @RequestHeader(name = "user-id")
      public @interface CurrentUserId {
      }
