Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) March 03, 2013
On Friday 1 March, Pablo Rodriguez Pina, co-founder and co-director of the Perth (Western Australia) based software development consultancy, announced the company will be using the Project Lombok code generation library to improve the development of Java technology based software development projects.
Project Lombok is an open source library to improve productivity of Java development as well as the readability of Java Code by annotating java code with Java Annotations that generate “boilerplate” code. Some examples of annotations are @Getter and @Setter which can be applied to the fields of a java class to automatically generate the getter and setter methods.
In the words of Pablo Rodriguez Pina: “We have been testing java development with Project Lombok and the evaluation is very positive. With Lombok our development is much more efficient, our code is easier to read, to maintain and it has great integration with the IDE. ”
The main features offered By Project Lombok are:
- @Getter / @Setter - Generates Getter and Setter methods.
- @Getter(lazy=true) - Generates lazy loading getters.
- @ToString - Generates toString() methods.
- @EqualsAndHashCode - Generates hashCode and equals implementations from selected fields of a class, or all by default.
- @NoArgsConstructor, @RequiredArgsConstructor and @AllArgsConstructor - Generates constructors that take no arguments, one argument per final / non-null field, or one argument for every field.
- @Data - A shortcut for @ToString, @EqualsAndHashCode, @Getter on all fields, and @Setter on all non-final fields, and @RequiredArgsConstructor!
- @Cleanup - Automatic resource management: Call your close() methods safely with no hassle.
- @Synchronized - Synchronization with internal explicit locks.
- @SneakyThrows Throw automatically wrapped checked exceptions as runtime exceptions.
- @Log - Automatically generate the logger for a class.
- @Delegate - Automatically generate delegate methods for a given field.
