While I love to use camelCase convention (my primary specialization is Java ) wherever possible, I always use lower cae and underscores in databases. MS SQL and MySQL use both lower case and upper case for object names while some databases, for example Oracle, store all object names in upper case (no matter how you write them in your scripts). As a consequence, instead of veryLongAndImportantField you see VERYLONGANDIMPORTANTFIELD, which is VERY VERY inconvenient to say the least.
