Hi, I have a problem trying to specify a class in the argument of an annotation.
The class is also written in java and is something like:

public class MyClass {

public static class A{}
public static class B{}

I want, for instance, to pass A as class to my annotation as follows:

@Annoation(clazz = classOf[MyClass.A])

But it complains that the value must be constant. And don't realise how to pass this argument, and it's critical for my application.

Thanks, cheers.
