Where would we be without JavaBeans? We use them in all our basic Java applications. We have Struts Form Beans, Hibernate and Spring POJO's and the list goes on. We are all used to writing setters and getters in for our Java Bean's manually. With thanks to Eclipse and other plugins, this effort is now very very easy.

This tip is for the beginners (seniors, this is my first quick tip post) to generate setters and getters in a Java Bean class.

  • First declare all the variables you need in the class.


 

  • Next, right click any where on the source file. Select Source and then Generate Getters and Setters. This can be done alternatively by pressing Alt+Shift+S.

 

  • Now select the variables for which you want to generate the getters and setters and you're done. As you can see there are multiple options in the window.

 

  • Finally, the source code is..

Happy Coding!
