Case Sensitivity (Java and Corel Paradox Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Java versus Corel Paradox: A side by side comparison between Java and Corel Paradox.

Language Basics

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

Case Sensitivity

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

Case sensitiviy in this case is referring to commands and variable names. For example, are "printf" and "PrintF" equivalent? Are fullname and FullName equivalent? When you create commands, operations, methods, or variables should you worry about case?

Java:   Yes

Java is case sensitive.

Customary casing:

  • Classes - Initial Caps (Pascal Casing)
  • Variables - Initial lowecase (Camel case)
  • Methods - Initial lowecase (Camel case)
More Info / Comment
Corel Paradox:   No

ObjectPAL is not case sensitive. My preference for ObjectPAL is to follow the camel casing promoted in the examples and help files originally developed by Borland.

Syntax Example:  

All of the following are equivalent:

msgInfo "", "Hello"
MsgInfo "", "Hello"
msginfo "", "Hello"
MSGINFO "", "Hello"

Variables are not case sensitive.

FullName String
fullname="Mike Prestwood"
msgInfo("", fullNAME)
