Instrumenting java annotations

Is anyone using the Wily agent to instrument java code annotations? The Wily directive definitions document shows “TraceAnnotatedMethodsIfFlagged” but I have no idea how to use it. If you are using it then would you mind sharing some examples?

The goal in instrumenting java annotations is to help the Wily agent configurations become more self service for our developers. Currently some of our java developers are using java annotations where a plugin then exposes metrics through JMX. We then use the Wily agent to collect the JMX metrics, but we would prefer to use bytecode instrumentation and transaction traces.
