The Annotation tab is used to give information about a tool description.

The annotation information is about the tool description itself. It is separate from any annotation of the service. So, for example, the Name annotation for the tool description is not inherited by the service.

If you want to export a tool description, then you must fill in the annotation

In this example, the name of the tool description is set to "Greet".

The tool description is within a group called "unix".

You can put the tool description within a hierarchy of groups by specifying group names separated by colon, for example unix:example:io .

The larger text pane is used for entering a free-text description of the tool description.
