From now on Career Test Services will be providing more such posts to help students excel in the exams and interviews. Here are the newest interview questions being asked in interviews for java professionals. These can also prove to be useful for clearing fundamental doubts related to the programming language. These are also a boon for people undergoing java training



Question: Can a private method of a superclass be declared within a subclass?
Answer:
 Sure. A private field or method or inner class belongs to its declared class and hides from its subclasses. There is no way for private stuff to have a runtime overloading or overriding (polymorphism) features


Question: Why Java does not support multiple inheritence ? 
Answer:
 Java DOES support multiple inheritance via interface implementation.
   

Question:What is the difference between final, finally and finalize?
Answer:
 final - declare constant
               finally - handles exception
               finalize - helps in garbage collection
   

Question: Where and how can you use a private constructor.
Answer:
 Private constructor can be used if you do not want any other class to instanstiate the object , the instantiation is done from a static public method, this method is used when dealing with the factory method pattern when the designer wants only one controller (fatory method ) to create the object.
   

Question: In System.out.println(),what is System,out and println,pls explain? 
Answer:
 System is a predefined final class,out is a PrintStream object and println is a built-in overloaded method in the outobject.
   

Question: What is meant by "Abstract Interface"? 
Answer:
 First, an interface is abstract. That means you cannot have any implementation in an interface. All the methods declared in an interface are abstract methods or signatures of the methods.
    

Question: Can you make an instance of an abstract class? For example - java.util.Calender is an abstract class with a method getInstance() which returns an instance of the Calender class. 
Answer:
 No! You cannot make an instance of an abstract class. An abstract class has to be sub-classed. If you have an abstract class and you want to use a method which has been implemented, you may need to subclass that abstract class, instantiate your subclass and then call that method.
   

Question: What is the output of x<y? a:b = p*q when x=1,y=2,p=3,q=4?
Answer:
 When this kind of question has been asked, find the problems you think is necessary to ask before you give an answer. Ask if variables a and b have been declared or initialized. If the answer is yes. You can say that the syntax is wrong. If the statement is rewritten as: x<y? a:(b=p*q); the return value would be variable a because the x is 1 and less than y = 2; the x < y statement return true and variable a is returned.


Question: What is the difference between Swing and AWT components?
Answer:
 AWT components are heavy-weight, whereas Swing components are lightweight. Heavy weight components depend on the local windowing toolkit. For example, java.awt.Button is a heavy weight component, when it is running on the Java platform for Unix platform, it maps to a real Motif button.


Question: Why Java does not support pointers?
Answer: Because pointers are unsafe. Java uses reference types to hide pointers and programmers feel easier to deal with reference types without pointers. This is why Java and C# shine.
