Hi Prasanta,

If @override is not added, then it will cause recursion between
> LightweightContent.java:130 and LightweightContent.java:187

I don't understand how the existence or lack thereof of an @Override can
cause or prevent recursion (bar reflection). Since all the methods of the
interface are overriden in SwingNode (regardless of the annotation) their
default implementation is not used, and SwingNode is recursion-free.
What is more worrisome is that if the interface methods are not overriden
in some other implementing class, there will be infinite recursion, but
this a fault in the design of the interface (I'd say), and out of scope for
this issue. On the up side, one of the methods in the interface is
deprecated, so it didn't go completely under the radar.

Personally, I force the use of @Override where applicable since it can only
help and I only brought this up since you uncommented 1 of the annotations
and left 2 others.
