Project naming conventions: [Company].[ProjectName] vs [Company_ProjectName]

Is it good practice to name preface project names within a solution like so?


  • CompanyName.P01

  • CompanyName.P02

  • CompanyName.P03



Or is it safer to use a convention like this?


  • CompanyName_P01

  • CompanyName_P02

  • CompanyName_P03



To me, the [.] separator looks nicer, and provides intellisense, but is there any caveat to using it?

Answer

Most of the solutions I came across follow the following convention:

CompanyName.SolutionName.LayerName

So basically in a company named COMP and a Project Named StackOverflow, you would end up with a project that looks like this:

COMP.StackOverflow.Business
COMP.StackOverflow.Data
COMP.StackOverflow.Web
COMP.StackOverflow.Core

This allows you to easily manage the generated assembly, so if you need to create a common library to be used in your company. You would name it:

COMP.SomeFrameworkName;

That would easily seperate your company's (or Team's) Dlls from external Dlls and Nuget Packages.
