I've been given the task of establishing Java coding standards and have reviewed the "Chicken Coop" coding styles. I also have reviewd Sun's "Code Conventions for the java Programming Language" and "The Elements of Java Style" by Allan Vermeulen.
My question is where do I start?
What is the 5% of The "Chicken Coop's" Java Programming Style Guide that has been modified from the JDK source?
What are the more important conventions that should be covered in the standards?

If this is for a group, then i can think of quite a few things:
1) number of space characters to indent
2) targeted size of a method (try to have no more than 24 lines
in a method)
3) no import on demand rule
4) testing methods standards
5) what features will not be used
6) what library features / methods will not be used
7) what documentation must be completed when the standards are
not followed.
