Spring bean name violates conventions

Reports <bean> names that don't follow the bean naming conventions.

The convention is to use the standard Java convention for instance field names when naming beans. That is, bean names start with a lowercase letter and are camel-cased from there. Examples of such names include accountManager, accountService, userDao, loginController, and so on. Naming beans consistently makes your configuration easier to read and understand. Also, if you are using Spring AOP, it helps a lot when applying an advice to a set of beans related by name.
