Basic Java Syntax

About Java programs, it is very important to keep in mind the following points and Basic Java Syntax.

This syntax will help you to write a clean, fluid, and readable java program.

Table of Contents

Case Sensitivity

  1. Java is case sensitive, which means identifier Hello and hello would have a different meaning in Java.

Class Names

  1. For all class names, the first letter should be in Upper Case.
  2.  If several words are used to form a name of the class, each inner word’s first letter should be in Upper Case.
  3.  Example class MyFirstJavaClass

Method Names

  1. All method names should start with a Lower Case letter.
  2. If several words are used to form the name of the method, then each inner word’s first letter should be in Upper Case.
  3. Example public void myMethodName()

Program File Name

  1. Name of the program file should exactly match the class name.
  2. When saving the file, you should save it using the class name (Remember Java is case sensitive) and append ‘.java’ to the end of the name (if the filename and the class name do not match your program will not compile)

Example

  1. Assume ‘MyFirstJavaProgram‘ is the class name.
  2. Then the file should be saved as ‘MyFirstJavaProgram.java‘.
  3. In Java Program “public static void main(String args[])” is very important because processing starts from the main( ) method which is a mandatory part of every Java program.
