Coding conventions

Olivier Pernet Newbie

I've noticed you don't use an import statement for java.util, and instead repeat the full names of classes/interfaces like java.util.List.

Do you mind if I change that on the classes I'm editing?

 

Also, why do you use parenthesises around returned expressions in return statements?

    No don't mind.

    Just something I have always done - no reason, just the style I am used to - again I don't mind if you use your own style preferences.

     

    Main thing I don't like is changes from using tabs to spaces for indentation - this can make code comparison very difficult.

    Ah, good thing you mentioned it, my editor was set to use spaces. Just changed it.
