Naming Conventions

All MPI classes belong to the package mpi. Conventions for capitalization, etc, in class and member names generally follow the recommendations of Sun's Java code conventions [7]. Class names are in mixed case with the first letter of each internal word capitalized. Method and ordinary variable names are in mixed case, with the first letter lowercase. Constant variables are all uppercase with words separated by underscores (``_'').
