Update Code Conventions for Java and Scala
Open, MediumPublic


As a developer I want to have clear coding conventions to have consistent and high quality code. I also want tools (linter, static analyzers, ...) to help me follow those guidelines.

Minimal conventions already exist for Java, put in place by the Discovery team a long time ago and not significantly updated since 2015. They mostly provide a checkstyle configuration, stored on wiki (and thus not easily used as-is).

The Search Platform team has done significant work to improve tooling and conventions on their Java projects. This was done in the form of a Maven parent pom, which is used for all Search Platform Java projects. See the README in that project for an introduction on the various tools and concepts.
