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);
