    Our namespaces have abreviations in them that are well understood such as our company name and BLL/DAL.
    How do I tell the checker that these abreviations fit into its conventions.
    I have for instance..
    ALC.Web.BLL or
    ALC.Web.DAL

    where ALC would be our companies abbreviation.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback. JustCode wants that every acronym longer than 2 characters to be pascal-cased. Currently, you cannot set acronyms that are allowed to be upper-cased in JustCode.
    This, however, is something that we intend to implement. Here is a link for a PITS item where you can vote for it: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/justcode/9473.
    As a temporary workaround you could add a secondary naming rule for namespaces that has PascalCase as a rule and "ALC" as a prefix. If some of you namespaces end with BLL or DAL you could add a naming rule with ALC as a prefix and BLL or DAL as a suffix.
    If you have any more questions or remarks, please do not hesitate to contact us again!

    Greetings,

    I've voted for it in PITS.  This would be a huge addition, I've had to turn off the naming convention code analsysis checks because I have so many acronyms. Even ones like URL and HTTP, which are pretty standard, not to mention my own that make sense in my code.
