Naming Conventions

In order to deliver a consistent look and feel to users, it is advisable that Processors keep with standard naming conventions. The following is a list of standard conventions that are used:

  • Processors that pull data from a remote system are named Get<Service> or Get<Protocol>, depending on if they poll data from arbitrary sources over a known Protocol (such as GetHTTP or GetFTP) or if they pull data from a known service (such as GetKafka)

  • Processors that push data to a remote system are named Put<Service> or Put<Protocol>.

  • Relationship names are lower-cased and use spaces to delineated words.

  • Property names capitalize significant words, as would be done with the title of a book.
