Unable to use Lombok with Java 11


Upgrade Lombok as a dependency and as a IDE plugin (IntelliJ, NetBeans, Eclipse) and enable Annotation Processing in IDEs settings.

Latest version of Lombok and/or IntelliJ plugin perfectly supports Java 11.


v1.18.4 (October 30th, 2018)

  • PLATFORM: Many improvements for lombok’s JDK10/11 support.


Provides support for lombok annotations to write great Java code with
IntelliJ IDEA.

Last version (0.23) released on 17.12.2018

  • Tested and supports IntelliJ versions: 2016.2, 2016.3, 2017.X, 2018.X

Lombok project dependency

Make sure you have Lombok dependency added
to your project. This plugin does not automatically add it for you.

Please Note: Using newest version of the Lombok dependency is
recommended, but does not guarantee that all the features introduced
will be available. See Lombok changelog for more details.

So please update your lombok/plugin version to the latest ones. Should work like a charm.
