Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template adds articles to Category:Java articles by importance.


Simply add {{WikiProject Java}} to an article's talk page at or near the top (generally, below any that are more specific, and any that relate to current AfD or similar issues, and any that relate to article milestones, such as Good Article status; but above less specific ones, such as projects relating to technology, computers, etc., more generally).

{{WikiProject Java
|class = 
|importance = 
|computer-science = 
|computer-science-importance = 
|computing = 
|computing-importance = 
|needs-infobox = 
|needs-image = 
|attention = 
|small = 
|listas = 

Optional parameters

  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • computer-science – set |computer-science=yes if the article is supported by WikiProject Computer science.
  • computing – set |computing=yes if the article is supported by WikiProject Computing.
    • computing-importance (only used if |computing=yes is set; uses the same values as |importance=) – Importance rating within WikiProject Computing. If blank or omitted, the importance rating set by |importance= is used.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for James Gosling, use |listas=Gosling, James so that the talk page will show up in the G's and not the J's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-image – set |needs-image=yes to request that an image of the subject be added to the article.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.
