Naming rules for language constants
Name your language constants meaningfully so that their use is clear.
Using different prefixes can make it easier to differentiate between the names.
General constants used in different place, e.g. for labelling elements
on the page or for the page title
Label for buttons
Texts in tables such as for a notification if data records are
available (TABLE_NODATA_) or a table title (TABLE_TITLE_)
Texts for labels and specifications in the system data group
Texts for describing notifications in confirm requests
The "MSG_ constants" are an exception because messages
can contain a title and text (Notifier). These can be distinguished by using
a suffix at the end of the constant name:
The message title
The message text
If language constants are used for
all specifications for this element should be grouped together
language constant list. Use a property after the prefix to group them together -
such as the term "ACCESSTYPE". Each of the options
"_ROLE, _GROUP" and "_USER"
is then added afterwards accordingly.
There are no hard and fast rules for naming language constants because
how the constant names are defined depends on the complexity of the application.
The naming examples stated above should only serve as a possible approach.
