    Default naming conventions in Java

    I have a function, the name I gave to it is:

    setCDFonPeers

    CDF is abbreviation of cumulative distribution function
    the meaning of this method name is: set cumulative distribution function on a batch of peers

    so what is the proper name for it? is the name I gave a good one?
    or should it be

    setCDFOnPeers

    or

    setCdfOnPeers
    ?

    You are over analyzing this. Just check out the Java Naming Conventions link in my signature and apply as best you can to your code.

    There are two things you need to consider:
    1) The Java Naming Conventions that Jim mentioned
    2) The meaningfullness and usefullness of the name.

    For example, the methodname for the function set cumulative distribution function on a batch of peers: could be setCumuDisFuncBP(). Or setCumulativeDistributionFunctionOnABatchOfPeers(). Even though both these examples are valid according to the Naming Conventions, these are still not desirable. Too short and too long. So your own suggestions look about perfect.
