hi

the naming conventions for coding Java applications are clear to me. I'm  wondering what the best practices are for naming Java projects e.g. when creating a new project in NetBeans IDE or in BitBucket?

thanks.

    They are? What are they? Different orgs have their own naming standards. Other people have to be able to read, understand, maintain and enhance your code so standards are important.

    No one but your own business users and IT team even cares what you name your projects.

    There seems to be a consensus between organisations on naming packages, classes, methods etc!

    Sun set out a naming convention way back in 1997 (or maybe it was 1996), which most people follow.

    Sadly the download links for it seem to have died some time after Oracle absorbed Sun.

    So? That isn't what you ask about.

    You ask about naming projects - those are specific to your org.
