upper/lower case question

I've understood how to display decimals and change strings to upper/lower case (so many online resources on Java!)

I was wondering what should be best in the following code where I convert a string to:
1st character: upper string, subsequent characters, lower case. (line 25, first block of code)

the code is quite lengthy...

instead of calling "myaccount.GetAnyVariableNameHere" in the out.println(), shall I create a variable and call it ?
if so: should the name be the same as in the setter/getter or different?

Almost all of your code is irrelevant for your question. I would just create a capitalize function:

Or, if you don't mind the dependency, you could use the StringUtils class of the Apache Commons library.
