Description bondolo 2007-12-17 23:38:05 UTC
There are currently some differences between the style used by the NetBeans Java formatter and the coding conventions
documented in:

Could either the NetBeans defaults be changed to conform to the long standing JavaStyle defaults or a "Set to JavaStyle
Defaults" button be provided? 

It's not that I personally agree with the JavaStyle format chapter and verse but I'm hoping this can help solve some of
the ongoing styler + version control wars (wherein everyone applies their styler to code they edit and then check it in
resulting is many minor changes due only to styler setting differences).

Could you please describe particular differences from Java Style defaults. Thanks.
Comment 2 bondolo 2012-09-14 17:14:57 UTC
Section 8.2: Casts should be followed by a blank space.

Currently NetBeans defaults to no space after a cast.
Comment 3 Dusan Balek 2012-09-17 08:37:53 UTC
Should be fixed in the current dev build.
