How can I use Powertools with Lombok?

Poweretools uses aspectj-maven-plugin to compile-time weave (CTW) aspects into the project. In case you want to use Lombok or other compile-time preprocessor for your project, it is required to change aspectj-maven-plugin configuration to enable in-place weaving feature. Otherwise the plugin will ignore changes introduced by Lombok and will use .java files as a source.

To enable in-place weaving feature you need to use following aspectj-maven-plugin configuration:

<configuration>
    <forceAjcCompile>true</forceAjcCompile> 
    <sources/>
    <weaveDirectories>
        <weaveDirectory>${project.build.directory}/classes</weaveDirectory>
    </weaveDirectories>
    ...
    <aspectLibraries>
        <aspectLibrary>
            <groupId>software.amazon.lambda</groupId>
            <artifactId>powertools-logging</artifactId>
        </aspectLibrary>
    </aspectLibraries>
</configuration>

How can I use Powertools with Kotlin projects?

Poweretools uses aspectj-maven-plugin to compile-time weave (CTW) aspects into the project. When using it with Kotlin projects, it is required to forceAjcCompile. No explicit configuration should be required for gradle projects.

To enable forceAjcCompile you need to use following aspectj-maven-plugin configuration:

 1

<configuration>
    <forceAjcCompile>true</forceAjcCompile>

        <aspectLibrary>
            <groupId>software.amazon.lambda</groupId>
            <artifactId>powertools-logging</artifactId>
        </aspectLibrary>
    </aspectLibraries>
</configuration>
