According to the Jakarta site, I believe the Java code goes under:

Spaces vs. tabs aren't specified, but it says indention of 8.

I'd imagine that the j-t-c code (non-Java code) uses the traditional
Apache style:

But, that isn't specified anywhere.

I wish that the Java code used the Apache style.  I find indention of 
8 with hard tabs to be downright awful.  Some of us don't use GUI 
editors.  =)  -- justin
