    @yasserzamani Thanks!
   
    No need to apologize. It is just that we try to be conservative with new additions (If we add a public method we have to support it for a long time and can not do any incompatible changes.). If the method is deemed generally useful it can always be moved and made public later on.

> In order to fix WW-4744 , mainly, I am going to add two functionalities to MethodUtils: findAnnotation and findMethodsWithAnnotation.
> findAnnotation will be an extension for Method.getAnnotation that also searches interfaces and super classes while caching results with no memory leak.
> findMethodsWithAnnotation will be an extension for getMethodsWithAnnotation that also supports non public methods, super class and interface methods, again, while caching results as above.
> Generally, do you agree with these in a pull request? If so, I will be working on it :)
