Understanding Capacitor Code

I've been trying to decode a bunch of capacitors and I'm stuck on one. From seaching the code on ebay I figured out that it's a 100V 4.7nF Polyester Film Capacitor but I don't understand the code. It's labeled 2A472J. I've looked at a lot of websites on capacitor codes but none seem to explain this format (at least not in a way I can understand). Can someone explain it? - Thanks
