Lombok is not generating getter and setter


I just tried to send a Maven-based project to another computer and HORROR, red markers everywhere!!

However, mvn clean install is building just fine.

Quickly, I noticed that Lombok is not generating getters and setters for my classes, although the @Getter and @Setter are being correctly recognised by Eclipse.

Both computers use the same Maven version (3.0.4) but different JDKs (1.6_23 and 1.6_33). They both use Eclipse Indigo 32 bit. Do you have an idea about how to solve the problem?

The Best Answer is


When starting with a fresh eclipse installation you, in fact, need to "install" Lombok before being able to use it.

  1. Go where you Lombok jar is (e.g. (e.g. you can find in ~/.m2/repository/org/projectlombok/lombok/1.16.10/lombok-1.16.10.jar), run it (Example: java -jar lombok-1.16.10.jar). A window should appear, browse to your eclipse.exe location.
  2. Click on install.
  3. Launch Eclipse, update project configuration on all projects and voila.

  • If you use STS. You must have Lombok installed in your Eclipse by running lombok-xyz.jar

  • Please Try the Following the Steps:

    1. Include pom in Maven .
    2. Exit/Shutdown STS
    3. Find lombok Jar in ~/.m2/repository/org/projectlombok/lombok/version.x
    4. From Command Prompt/Shell java -jar lombok-1.x.y.jar Project Lombok Installer

    5. Start STS

Thats all.

EDIT: I did this and was still showing errors, as mentioned in the comments. So I updated the project: right-click on project -> Maven -> Update Project and the errors disappeared.
