Two answers.

Sure, you can do a toUpperCase on the first char of the string, but this
does not make it any more legitamet.  Basically, if you have something like
EmployeeRecord, go back and jaws cursor over how I spelled that.  Noticed
that each word needs to be capitolized.  Therefore, capitolizing the first
letter only is honestly no more correct than just leaving them all lower
case.  If it's automated, then you don't have to have them be upper case,
that's simply a strongly enforced and suggested style guideline.

Regardless, here are the two javadoc pages you need for the string and char





Take care,

Subject: [program-java] Strings


I'm writing a program that will take a COBOL copybook record layout and
creates automatically a java class with the corresponding fields, getters
and setters and the necessary code for my CICS to CICS transaction.

The UI is complete and so is most of the backend logic and now I'm just
cleaning things up?. 

One thing I want to do is once I've selected my .cbl file from a file dialog
is to check the first character of the file name?. If its lower case then
convert it to upper case because the existing file name eventually becomes a
.java file and as a standard all .java classes start with a capital letter?.

I guess I'm looking at this way to hard because for the life of me I can't
seem to dig my self out of this hole. Any ideas?
