    Description

      javac in at least JDK 11 misinterprets the applicability of an annotation type T whose declaration has no @Target meta-annotation. For example, T should be applicable to module declarations, yet javac disallows @T in that context. (ecj allows it, correctly.)

      See JDK-8231435 for a simple clarifying spec change in this area.
