Programming Tips - Should you write "static final" or "final static" ?

Date: 2014sep10 Language: Java Keywords: order, syntax, keywords Q. Should you write "static final" or "final static" ? A. Both are legal but the convention is "static final". For example:
public static final int NUMBER = 123; private static final int NUMBER = 123;
By the way, I avoid "static" and "final" in example code here on davekb unless its necessary. But I use both in production code.
