    Default Declaring paramters in java class


    I am trying to declare fields as protected String custom.field.1096; in my java class but it does not allow me.
    Can I not declare the field as above? Is there any workaround to achieve this?

    you cannot declare a field name with invalid characters. dot ( . ) is not a valid character for declaring a field name.
    kindly see this: Variables (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
