Java Coding Guidelines

1. Basic Naming convention standards: 

To describe variable/constant/method/class/interface etc use full descriptor. E.g.: rollNumber, firstName, lastName, getTotalMarks().

2. Naming variable:

Use first word in small letters and all remaining words will be capitalized. E.g. – rollNumber, firstName.

3. Naming Constants:

Use all letters in upper case. E.g. – MAX_MARKS.

4. Naming methods:

a). Naming member methods : 

Use first word in small letters and all remaining words will be capitalized. E.g. – getTotalMarks().

b). Naming accessor methods:

for getters – use get as prefix to property (for non Boolean properties). e.g. – getRollNumber().

for setters – use set as prefix to property. e.g. – setRollNumber().

use is as prefix to property(for Boolean properties). e.g. – isNewStudent().

5. Naming class/interface:

Use capitalized words for class/interface name. E.g.- HelloWorld.
