1. Overview

All static final class fields in java should be upper case with underscore between words.

3.3 Field naming
Names of fields being used as constants should be all upper-case, with underscores separating words.
The following are considered to be constants:

  1. All static final primitive types (Remember that all interface fields are inherently static final).
  2. All static final object reference types that are never followed by "." (dot).
  3. All static final arrays that are never followed by "[" (dot).

// java.lang.Math
public static final double E = 2.7182818284590452354;
public static final double PI = 3.14159265358979323846;
