Hi @ahana_k ,

"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."

For more details please read official documentation [0].

How can Lombok be implemented in AEM?

I haven't found any documentation from Adobe. However, there are plenty of un-official sites by visiting them you can understand how it works & how can it be implemented in AEM.

  • You can add “Lombok” in your maven project as maven dependency. To include lombok as a 'provided' dependency, add it to your <dependencies> block like so:

    <dependencies>
    	<dependency>
    		<groupId>org.projectlombok</groupId>
    		<artifactId>lombok</artifactId>
    		<version>1.18.24</version>
    		<scope>provided</scope>
    	</dependency>
    </dependencies>

Here are some sites where you can see some practical along with examples [1], [2].
