re: Java Programming is 90% Easier with Project Lombok VIEW POST

re: Nice article. Still, it seems like a pain. Instead Lombok or anything, isn't easier to switch to Kotlin?

Good point. I prefer to use Kotlin over Java.

My opinions:

If it was a small and personal project switching to Kotlin would be far easier.

Otherwise you have to convince others to adopt a new programming language. You could get the apt Kotlin developers to sign on. Getting inexperienced Kotlin developers to switch would be a challenge.

In a work setting you also have to convince management to switch. Which would be hard.


I know. It is not that easy. By the way, I remember reading an article describing automatic conversion from Java to Kotlin which worked fine until Lombok stepped in.

I am not Javist but perhaps you should investigate this. Maybe in future this may become a source of troubles for you when you will consider transition to Kotlin.
