Class Naming Convention: A class name shall be a noun or a noun phrase made up of several words. All the words shall be initial-capitalized (camel-case). Use a singular noun for class name. Choose a meaningful and self-descriptive classname. For examples, SoccerPlayer, HttpProxyServer, FileInputStream, PrintStream and SocketFactory.

 

Variable Naming Convention: A variable name shall be a noun or a noun phrase made up of several words. The first word is in lowercase and the rest of the words are initial-capitalized (camel-case), e.g., fontSize, roomNumber, xMax, yMin and xTopLeft. Take note that variable name begins with an lowercase, while class name begins with an uppercase.

 

Method Naming Convention: A method name shall be a verb, or a verb phrase made up of several words. The first word is in lowercase and the rest of the words are initial-capitalized (camel-case). For example, getRadius(), getParameterValues().
