Help Ranchers Please!!
Im looking for a reference or url that defines the coding standard for Java 2:
Code style eg does the brace go adjacent to the
identifier or under the identifier? re both styles acceptable in the same program?
Indenting
spaces between keywords and braces and
brackets
Comments style
Javadoc comments
What is compulsory and what is optional
Comments for methods
Design documentation. UML? which version or can you make your own using combination?
Please help as resource is required urgently.
I am preparing a standardisation for university course.
Regards,

There is also an excellent book call "Elements of Java Style". It is a wee little pocket reference but has a ton of information and guidelines beyond simple syntax standardization. We have a couple of copies that constantly circulate around the office. Check it out here
