Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1363) Derby should publish a well defined coding convention per the db project guidlines
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 23:47:18 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1363?page=comments#action_12425637 ] 
Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-1363:

Putting handling of existing code aside, I would like to propose  we adopt  the client code
format moving forward.    My reasons have nothing to do with love of that  actual format 
but are as follows:

1) We need a coding convention to be in compliance with the db project guidlines.
2) A large portion of the code is already in that format, Jeremy made a pass after contribution.
3) This issue has wasted huge amounts of time for the Derby community and burnt virtually
every new developer.
4) The format if as Jeremy described should be fairly easy to configure in most IDE's.

Here is Jeremy's description of that format.
It needs to be researched and documented and perhaps items that are already on the checklist
like 80 characters per line added.

Jeremy sure was right about the bikeshed discussion [1]  and very wise to just pull the band-aid
off quick despite all the whining by me and others.  Please before you consider raising serious
objections to this consider all it has and will cost the project if we don't come to consensus
on this.  

If  there are no objections,   we can then take the next step to document the format and next
figure out how to get there for the full code base, but if we can get past this step I think
we will have made great progress on this issue.

> The DB project guidlines dictate that we should have a well defined convention for coding
> 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
