Hi All,
I got very confused when I read the naming convention for constants in the Sun coding standards. Pls consider this given situation.

class TestConstants {
public static final int ----------- (1)
private static final int ---------- (2)
public static final Logger ----------- (3)
private static final Logger ----------- (4)
Could you please let me know the naming conventions for the above stated constant value decelerations.

Thanks in advance. Regards.

As far as I can remember you should be calling the constants MY_INT, MY_SECOND_INT, MY_LOGGER and MY_SECOND_LOGGER.
