To be honest with you, I don't know.  I, personally, prefer case
sensitive environments.  With the exception of IIS, I've never had to
work with an app server that wasn't case-sensitive.  When I type 'a', I
mean 'a', not ('a' or 'A').  For that reason, I've never researched the

Since the naming convention in Java depends on case-sensitivity, I
suspect that the majority of Servlet/JSP developers feel the same way.
