I use C# for about 1/2 of my development time.
As such I have a lot of experience with properties.
And I wanted to quickly disspel the idea that properties remove getters&setters
they do not.
You will still get many situations where a getter and setter is
preferred or required.
especially when a Conversion is in play, such as
getAverage(includeExtraCredit, includeTransfers)

In general, I am not a Fan of properties, although I am VERY
supportive of a syntax like lombok to reduce the clutter and

because the Properties split up and then you have to deal with the
getters/setters anyways. you will always need a bean introspector.
probably somethings like
