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.
