Axon source code style guide

Hi everyone @ AxonIQ,

Recently I have contributed some pull requests to Axon. I’m kind of picky on source code formatting and noticed there is no standard formatting to be found.
e.g. max line length, tabs vs whitespace indentations, when to insert blank lines, …

Do you have a standard setting in your IDEs? Perhaps one that can be shared?


Hi Benoit,

The file in the Axon Framework project has a ‘Code Style’ section which contains a link to the code style for the framework.

The code style can be found here.

We are however thinking of adjusting it somewhat.
Can’t tell you when we will do that though, but I’ll ensure to notify everybody here if we do.



Hi Steven,


No worries Benoît! :slight_smile:
