Difference between the two codes listed below

Details: Coding style is a very important characteristic for those entering the technology field. Here are two sample Java programs that do exactly the same thing according to the user. Please identify the differences in the code samples and discuss the style of each sample. Make sure to address readability as a characteristic and how it would influence an IT department's ability to maintain custom software for a corporation.

1. SAMPLE CODE A:

import java.util.Scanner;
public class DB2_SampleA{
public static void main(String args[]){
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
int num1;
System.out.print("Enter first number: ");
num1 = input.nextInt();
int num2;
System.out.print("Enter second number: ");
num2 = input.nextInt();
if (num1>num2)
System.out.println("First number is bigger");
if (num1<num2)
System.out.println("Second number is bigger");
if (num1==num2)
System.out.println("Numbers are equal");
}}

2. SAMPLE CODE B:

// DB2_SampleB
// This program will get two numbers from the user
// and determine which is bigger or whether they are equal

import java.util.Scanner; // Scanner class used for getting user input

public class DB2_SampleB
{
// The manin method that begins execution of Java application
public static void main(String args[])
{
// variable declarations
int num1; // first number to compare
int num2; //second number to compare

// create Scanner to capture input from console
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

// get user input, num1 and num2
System.out.print("Enter first number: ");
num1 = input.nextInt();
System.out.print("Enter second number: ");
num2 = input.nextInt();

// compare numbers and display results
if (num1 > num2)
System.out.println("First number is bigger");
if (num1 < num2)
System.out.println("Second number is bigger");
if (num1 == num2)
System.out.println("Numbers are equal");
