Which of the setter methods below conform to JavaBean name convention? (Not from any mock test)

Thanks!

private int a;

1. void setA(int a) {};
2. protected void setA(int a) {};
3. public void setA(int a) {}
4. public void setA(int x) {}

Hi,
I think
public void setA(int a)
is the correct setter method of a bean.
You can get more info regarding this on sun website. Just search for java coding convention.
Thanks

Must be 3, since a setter must be
1-marked public
2-marked void
3-have an argument that represents the property being set.
(I don't think that "int x" represents the property "A")
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
