Technical Paper: Java - J2EE Conventions and Guidelines
Source: Sun Microsystems
When a J2EE project is not performing fast enough or some bugs can not be found a code audit is often performed. The first question asked is "Does the company use any Java coding conventions?" Many companies have a coding conventions document but when one then looks at the code nobody within the team has followed the conventions. This paper does not only cover Java and J2EE coding conventions, but documentation, naming conventions, guidelines and best practices. These conventions can be enforced by using existing Java tools. By enforcing these conventions better developer can be made and hopefully produce better Java and J2EE code!.
