1 – The valid characters in java Identifiers are :

       a – z, A – Z, 0 – 9, underscore (_), dollar symbol ($).

2 – Identifiers should not start from Digit :

      xyz11      [valid]

3 – No length Restriction but choose short name as Identifiers.

4 – Java Identifiers are case sensitive.

5 – we can’t use keywords/reserved word as Identifiers.

       int if=10;              [invalid]

       int double=10;    [valid]

       class class=10;     [invalid]

 6 – All predefine classes and Identifiers are allowed to use as Identifiers.

       int system=10;

       string string=”xyz”;

       int Runnable=30;      //valid Runnable is predefined interface.

Ex – int_=10;  (java 8)is valid.

        int_=10;  (java 8)is invalid.

       We can’t  say keywords as identifiers.
