The guide clearly says:
The functionality of LocalInspectionTool partially duplicates that of
Annotator, and the main differences are that LocalInspectionTool
supports batch analysis of code
But at least for plugin-development it would be great to have batch
support for Annotator. Imagine you have an web-language whichis compiled
correctly by the what-ever-compiler. So if the plugin shows any errors
for that project, it has to be adjusted.
What du you think? Totally stupid/not possible/file JIRA/...
