Declaring Constants in Java/JavaScript/ActionScript

This has confused me some times in the past, so I thought I’d put it here for easy reference.

Java:

final int VALUE = 10;

JavaScript:

const VALUE = 10;

ActionScript:

const VALUE:Number = 10;

 

The point of confusion is that const is a reserved word in Java but is not used for declaring constants (yet!). Java uses the final keyword for this purpose.
