Looking at Project Lombok

My look into concurrency continues. I am messing around with some of the comments that I have gotten from my posts on LinkedIn and Stack Overflow.

I also found a project called Lombok, named after one of the islands of Indonesia. It uses annotations to replace a lot of boilerplate in Java for a few tasks, including threading. It can handle getters and setters, equals and hashCode and logging as well as synchronization.

A few of the forums that I have been on have recommended looking at something other than the “synchronized” keyword, which Lombok seems to rely on. But it is still worth looking at.
