Eclipse Mars and Project Lombok

Correct Versions

[wp_ad_camp_2]

For Eclipse Mars.2 Release (4.5.2), Lombok 1.16.16 works in generating those getters and setters. If you are new to using Project Lombok, chances are you’ve tried a wrong version of it for your Eclipse.

It will take a little research to know which version is compatible with your IDEA.

Installation Steps Still Work

In https://projectlombok.org/, there is a demo video. It also demonstrates how to setup Lombok on your machine for Eclipse.

The instructions are still valid but you may need to double-check your Lombok and Eclipse version.

My Codes now use Lombok

The decision to use Lombok is due to the fact, I lately realized, that I am developing a huge application alone. I did not see it coming. Therefore, my approach needs to be leaner with less typing, more flexible design, and maximum reusability on components.

By using a annotation, Lombok takes care of my POJOs by generating all the getters and setters among other things.
