Why in Color class colors like blue, red, green are used as
Color.blue, Color.red and Color,green instead of Color.BLUE,
Color.RED and Color.GREEN as they are static and final as per
convention any specific reason

The only answer I can see is that someone else wrote the Color class and didn't follow the coding standard.

There is a sensible answer to this that I've read before, but I don't remember. But it is not an error or a convention violation.

hi ,
just guessing....but can it be because red/green/blue... are not primitive/String variables instead they are instances of Color class.
Marius were u talking about this link...? http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum24/HTML/003052.html

looking forward for a right answer
