"8.10.4 Record Constructor Declarations

  Every record type R has a canonical constructor. This is a public
  constructor whose formal parameter list is identical to the record
  header of R."


So for example, is this considered a canonical constructor?

   record R(int i, int j) {
     public R(int jjj, int iii) {
       this.i = jjj;
       this.j = iii;

Does "formal parameter list" include the component name ( as well as the 
order and type )?
