to reduce java boilerplate when coding & reviewing
- Migrate all code at once or incrementally?
- some features we don't want to use?
- we make use of stable lombok lombok feateres where appropriate to reduce boilerplate code (at least default getter/setters, default ctors (e.g. @Data) & static loggers but we should evaluate others as well) https://projectlombok.org/features/all
- ide setup works flawlessly for lombok annotated java code (as intellij uses the java compiler directly a lombok plugin needs to be added)
