Java Programming Standards & Conventions: When Style Triumphs Over Substance

When developing applications, written in Java, make some ground rules for you and others to follow for ease in supportability and enhancement. Methods discussed bring order and take some of the dread and guesswork out of approaching someone else's, or your application, written a year ago (what was I thinking?). Less of this: “Oh no! I've got to look at that mess (again?), and have less than two days to report back on my findings.”

Recommendations made are the result of standards used and enforced in a commercial IT production environment:
  • Think, so that you don't have to think.
  • Follow the breadcrumbs.
  • final is your friend.
  • Use static to avoid shocks.
  • Beans (Java), beans (Java), good for your heart...

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
