      Description

      The DB project guidlines dictate that we should have a well defined convention for coding standards.
      http://db.apache.org/source.html says

      "Java Language source code in the repository must be written in conformance to the " Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language as published by Sun, or in conformance with another well-defined convention specified by the subproject. See the FAQ page for links to subproject conventions."

      We should publish at least a well defined convention for new code in order to comply with the db project guidlines.

      Discussion for whether to reformat or not once that is decided is under discussion in the thread:
      http://www.nabble.com/Code+formatting+debate%2C+confusion+and+wasted+time+%2C+Has+it+gone+on+long+enough--t1710825.html

      but at least the coding standards should be defined.
