Best characterized as subtly different from Gnu C-style,

I will try here to start a list, it may be wrong.  I view Tom Tromey
as authoritative on the subject but not sure when he is back from

Opening/closing brace for class and method is at the same level of
indent as the declaration.  All other braces are indented and content
between braces indented again.

Unnecessary braces can be removed, one line after an if, for, while as

Space before method declaration parens, statement parens, braces,
method call parens.

Space after comma, semicolon, type cast.

Space around operators (assignment, logical, relational, bitwise,
mathematical, shift).

Implements and extends on separate lines, throws too.
Indent extends, implements, throws.
Apply deep indentation for method arguments.

If possible, generate specific imports (expand) over* type
imports.  Order by gnu, java, javax.

Blank line after package statement, last import statement, classes,
interfaces, methods.

Blank line before single-line comments, multi-line comments, javadoc

If more than 2 blank lines, trim to 2.

Wrap lines at 80 characters after assignments and before operators.
Wrap always before extends, implements, throws, and labels.
