through '9') only. No underscores, dollar signs or non-ascii characters.
Hungarian Notation violates OO abstraction and is not to be used.
2.1 - Classes and Interfaces
All class and interface identifiers will use mixed case. The first letter of each word in the name will be uppercase, including the first letter of the name. All other letters
will be in lowercase, except in the case of an acronym, which will be all upper case.
2.2 - Packages
Package names will use lower case characters only. Try to keep the length under eight
(8) characters. Multi-word package names should be avoided.
2.3 - All Other Identifiers
All other identifiers, including (but not limited to) attributes, variables, methods
and parameters will use this default naming convention. This includes final identifiers
(using all upper case, as traditionally done in C, is a violation of OO abstraction). The
first letter of each word in the name will be uppercase, except for the first letter of
the name. All other letters will be in lowercase, except in the case of an embedded
acronym, which will be all uppercase. Leading acronyms are all lower case.
