What is the convention for word separator in Java package names?

All three are not the conventions.

Use com.stackoverflow.mypackage.

The package names do not follow camel casing or underscores or hyphens package naming convention.

Also, Google Java Style Guide specifies exactly the same (i.e. com.stackoverflow.mypackage) convention:

5.2.1 Package names

Package names are all lowercase, with consecutive words simply concatenated together (no underscores). For example, com.example.deepspace, not com.example.deepSpace or com.example.deep_space.
