I need a method that takes in a string like "W_ACT_010_LOG_DATE" and outputs "WAct010LogDate" - which is camelcase with first letter capitalized.

What's the cleanest way to do that? (in java)

Something like:
        String s = "W_ACT_010_LOG_DATE";

        String[] atoms = s.split("_");

        StringBuilder camel = new StringBuilder();

        for (String atom : atoms) {

            if (atom.length() > 0) {

                camel.append(Character.toUpperCase(atom.charAt(0)));

            }

            if (atom.length() > 1) {

                camel.append(atom.substring(1).toLowerCase());

            }

        }

        System.out.println(camel);
