Winner of NetBeans IDE 6.8 Screenshot Competition

With the release of NetBeans IDE 6.8 (today) (hurray!) the time has come to reveal the winner of the NetBeans IDE 6.8 screenshot competition. OK, no one knew about this competition because I just invented it myself, plus I am the winner as well, so go figure. Here's the screenshot:

That's Lombok... i.e., forget about typing (and updating!) getters, setters, hashCode, toString, because Lombok does that for you. All you need to do is add an annotation to the class, type the names of your variables, and then, under the hood, everything is generated into the bytecode!

Thanks to Jan Lahoda for the NetBeans integration.

Here's the interview (from where I took the screenshot above, which is by me):

...and here's the screencast by Alexis that shows you a complete Java EE 6 demo with Lombok:

Whoever ends up 'owning' Java, the first thing they should try and accomplish is integrate Lombok into the JDK.
