Hi,

I very much appreciate the Javaranch Java Programming Style Guide.

But is this style guide applicable for the SCJD exam

Regards,
Darya

Since the Javaranch Coding Standard is offered as an alternative to Sun's Coding Conventions and differs from them in certain respects, I would not recommend use of the Javaranch Coding Standard for the SCJD exam. Rather, I think you should follow Sun's Code Conventions.

I believe that its consistency and readability that count. I personally dislike the Sun coding standard, but have chosen to use it and use checkstyle to enforce it. If you chose a different coding style, be sure to document what it is in your choices.txt.

Can I use Javaranch's Style Guide and reference it in choices.txt or should I better get used to Sun's Code Convention to be on the safe side, at least for the SCJD exam?
