No need to start a debugger to see your fields: Just let lombok generate a
toString for you!
Any class definition may be annotated with
@ToString to let lombok generate an implementation of the
toString() method. By default, it'll print your class name, along with each field, in order, separated by commas.
By setting the
includeFieldNames parameter to true you can add some clarity (but also quite some length) to the output of the
By default, all non-static fields will be printed. If you want to skip some fields, you can name them in the
exclude parameter; each named field will not be printed at all. Alternatively, you can specify exactly which fields you wish to be used by naming them in the
callSuper to true, you can include the output of the superclass implementation of
toString to the output. Be aware that the default implementation of
java.lang.Object is pretty much meaningless, so you probably don't want to do this unless you are extending another class.
Supported configuration keys:
false] (default: true)
Normally lombok generates a fragment of the toString response for each field in the form of
fieldName = fieldValue. If this setting is set to
false, lombok will omit the name of the field and simply deploy a comma-separated list of all the field values. The annotation parameter '
includeFieldNames', if explicitly specified, takes precedence over this setting.
false] (default: false)
If set to
true, lombok will access fields directly instead of using getters (if available) when generating
toStringmethods. The annotation parameter '
doNotUseGetters', if explicitly specified, takes precedence over this setting.
error] (default: not set)
Lombok will flag any usage of
@ToStringas a warning or error if configured.
If there is any method named
toString with no arguments, regardless of return type, no method will be generated, and instead a warning is emitted explaining that your
@ToString annotation is doing nothing. You can mark any method with
@lombok.experimental.Tolerate to hide them from lombok.
Arrays are printed via
Arrays.deepToString, which means that arrays that contain themselves will result in
StackOverflowErrors. However, this behaviour is no different from e.g.
Attempting to exclude fields that don't exist or would have been excluded anyway (because they are static) results in warnings on the named fields. You therefore don't have to worry about typos.
of generates a warning; the
exclude parameter will be ignored in that case.
We don't promise to keep the output of the generated
toString() methods the same between lombok versions. You should never design your API so that other code is forced to parse your
toString() output anyway!
By default, any variables that start with a $ symbol are excluded automatically. You can only include them by using the 'of' parameter.
If a getter exists for a field to be included, it is called instead of using a direct field reference. This behaviour can be suppressed:
@ToString(doNotUseGetters = true)
@ToString can also be used on an enum definition.
