Remove dependency on javassist by using standard JDK annotation functionality

Description

Use of javassist is typically done for access to non-RUNTIME Retention annotations or for annotation parsing over a large set of classes when you don't want to load the class. We don't have those use cases and thus can eliminate the javassist dependency in AnnotationFinder.

New version of AnnotationFinder is attached that seems to work - I wasn't sure if getAnnotation should look at interfaces and/or superclasses (not needed if we appropriate add the @Inherited to our annotations).

jbehave-core/pom.xml also changed to remove the dependency.
