Adding an Exemplar means adding an import of the annotation class into your project. It’s important to note that you’re not adding a dependency on Sureassert UC, just the annotation. The Sureassert UC annotations jar you import contains just annotations, nothing else, and has no dependencies. All the annotations are open-source and can be freely incorporated into any project. By using Sureassert, you do not introduce a dependency on the Sureassert UC Engine for Eclipse into your project – just the annotation itself (which has no impact at runtime).
