Subject: CamelCase convention recommendation from OpenCSA liaison committee


The SCA-Policy TC noticed that intents defined in various SCA
spec do not follow any particular convention. That TC decided to fix it
for the policy specs by adopting the convention of using camelCase with
first letter lower case unless the word was an acronym (such as SOAP
or JMS). They then asked the liaison committee to make this
recommendation to the rest of the OpenCSA TCs.

The Liaison subcommittee today decided the following:

Liaison committee recommends that all the TC's adopt the Policy TC
recommendation that intents use camelCase (first letter lowercase)
except for acronyms which would be all upper case.


LSC recommends adding some text to the "conventions" section of the
specs which describes the naming conventions:

e.g. intents as above, type names are CamelCase, element names are
camelCase, attributes are @camelCase are preceded by an "@" sign, etc.

....and that the Assembly TC should take the lead on documenting these conventions by adding
a new section at the start of the spec.

I will raise an issue for this.

Yours,  Mike.
