Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1363) Derby should publish a well defined coding convention per the db project guidlines
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2006 06:30:16 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1363?page=all ]

Kathey Marsden updated DERBY-1363:
----------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 10.2.0.0

Setting this to fix version 10.2  as a high value fix candidate.  This issue has hit virtually
every new developer that has joined the project and already cost many developer and reviewer
hours.   Francois calls it an infection and I think this is true. As we get more and more
developers  in just wanting to fix their bug and move on it will become more and more of an
issue, not to mention that our current state  puts is in violation of the db project guidelines.

My vote, document and adopt the client code format moving forward, only because a large chunk
of code is that way already and we get rid of the tabs, but of course I would defer to the
brave soul willing to take this on.

> The DB project guidlines dictate that we should have a well defined convention for coding
standards.
> http://db.apache.org/source.html says
> "Java Language source code in the repository must be written in conformance to the "
Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language as published by Sun, or in conformance
with another well-defined convention specified by the subproject. See the FAQ page  for links
to subproject conventions."
> We should publish at least a well defined convention for new code in order to comply
with the db project guidlines.
> Discussion for whether to reformat or not once that is decided is under discussion in
the thread:
> http://www.nabble.com/Code+formatting+debate%2C+confusion+and+wasted+time+%2C+Has+it+gone+on+long+enough--t1710825.html
> but at least the coding standards should be defined.
