A technical paper on Java and J2EE Conventions has today been published on https://jjguidelines.dev.java.net/
. This document does not only cover Java and J2EE coding conventions, but documentation, naming conventions, guidelines (chapter two) and best practices (chapter three).
This document was only possible through the support of the Flemish and Belgian Federal Government. The result is that future Java and J2EE projects executed for these departments have to follow and enforce the conventions written in this document.
These conventions can be enforced by using existing Java tools. By enforcing these rules we'll make a better developer out of you and hopefully we'll all produce better Java and J2EE code.
Your comments and suggestions are very welcome.
