How to use Lombok now


When I imported the source for a project, I got a lot of build errors. There are a lot of errors that make XXXBuilder not exist. If you look at build.gradle, you can see that it uses lombok's library, but in fact, you need to install the Lombok plugin in the IDE as well.


Project Lombok is a java library that automatically plugs into your editor and build tools, spicing up your java. Never write another getter or equals method again, with one annotation your class has a fully featured builder, Automate your logging variables, and much more.

How to use Lombok

Lombok features

Added lombok library to build.gradle


    compile group: 'org.projectlombok', name: 'lombok', version: '1.18.12'

@Getter/@Setter image.png

It's easy to understand, but getter and setter methods are automatically generated.

@ToString The toString method is defined and controlled as @ToString (exclude =" age ", callSuper = false) image.png

Only the excluded age field is unused.

@EqualsAndHashCode image.png

Three methods, hashCode, equals and canEqual, are generated.

@NoArgsConstructor, @RequiredArgsConstructor, @AllArgsConstructor image.png

@Value image.png

@Builder image.png

@Data image.png

As shown in the above example, it is a summary of the following annotations.

@Log image.png

@Cleanup Annotation that automatically releases resources. This is convenient because you can omit the resource close process yourself.


import lombok.Cleanup;

public class TestMain {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		InputStream in = new FileInputStream(args[0]);
		OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(args[1]);

		byte[] b = new byte[1024];
		while (true) {
			int r =;
			if (r == -1) {
			out.write(b, 0, r);


Hakamo val, var, @ NonNull,@ Getter (lazy = true), @Helper, @ Slf4j and so on.

Using these annotations can reduce the amount of bean classes and improve maintenance.

that's all
