Can't compile project when I'm using Lombok under IntelliJ IDEA

I'm trying to use Lombok in my project that I'm developing using IntelliJ IDEA 11.

I've installed 3rd-party plugin for IDEA and it seems working fine because IDEA sees all autogenerated methods/fields.

So I have a class that uses Slf4j. I annotated it like this

import lombok.extern.slf4j.Slf4j;

public class TestClass
public TestClass()

But when I build my project compiler spits:
cannot find symbol variable log

Could you please tell me what I'm missing here ?

Update: It turned out it's RequestFactory annotation process that fails.

input files: {com.zasutki.courierApp.server.TestServlet, com.mine.courierApp.server.model.DatastoreObject}

annotations: [javax.inject.Singleton, javax.inject.Inject, lombok.Getter, lombok.Setter, com.googlecode.objectify.annotation.Id, com.googlecode.objectify.annotation.OnSave]

Processor matches [lombok.Getter, com.googlecode.objectify.annotation.Id, javax.inject.Inject, lombok.Setter, com.googlecode.objectify.annotation.OnSave, javax.inject.Singleton] and returns false.

cannot find symbol variable log

Any ideas on workarounds ?

Update2: Perhaps it's not something readers want to hear but I ended up switching to Scala.


I have fixed it in IDEA 12 by setting check box Enable annotation processing in:

Settings -> Compiler -> Annotation Processors
