What restrictions are placed on method
Overridden methods must have the same name, argument list, and return
type. The overriding method may not limit the access of the method it
overrides. The overriding method may not throw any exceptions that may
not be thrown by the overridden method.
What is casting?
There are two types of casting, casting between primitive numeric types
and casting between object references. Casting between numeric types is
used to convert larger values, such as double values, to smaller values,
such as byte values. Casting between object references is used to refer
to an object by a compatible class, interface, or array type reference.
Explain the usage of the keyword transient?
This keyword indicates that the value of this member variable does not
have to be serialized with the object. When the class will be
de-serialized, this variable will be initialized with a default value of
its data type (i.e. zero for integers).
What class allows you to read objects directly from a stream?
The ObjectInputStream class supports the reading of objects from input
How are this() and super() used with constructors?
How is it possible for two String objects with identical values not
to be equal under the == operator? How are this() and super() used with
this() is used to invoke a constructor of the same class. super() is
used to invoke a superclass constructor.
The == operator compares two objects to determine if they are the same
objects in memory. It is possible for two String objects to have the
same value, but located in different areas of memory.
What is an IO filter?
An IO filter is an object that reads from one stream and writes to
another, usually altering the data in some way as it is passed from one
stream to another.
What is the Set interface?
The Set interface provides methods for accessing the elements of a
finite mathematical set. Sets do not allow duplicate elements.
How can you force garbage collection?
You can't force GC, but could request it by calling System.gc(). JVM
does not guarantee that GC will be started immediately.
What is the purpose of the enableEvents() method?
The enableEvents() method is used to enable an event for a particular
object. Normally, an event is enabled when a listener is added to an
object for a particular event. The enableEvents() method is used by
objects that handle events by overriding their event-dispatch methods.
What is the difference between the File and RandomAccessFile classes?
The File class encapsulates the files and directories of the local file
system. The RandomAccessFile class provides the methods needed to
directly access data contained in any part of a file.
What interface must an object implement before it can be written to a
stream as an object?
An object must implement the Serializable or Externalizable interface
before it can be written to a stream as an object.
What is the ResourceBundle class?
The ResourceBundle class is used to store locale-specific resources that
can be loaded by a program to tailor the program's appearance to the
particular locale in which it is being run.
How do you know if an explicit object casting is needed?
If you assign a superclass object to a variable of a subclass's data
type, you need to do explicit casting. For example:
Object a; Customer b; b = (Customer) a;
When you assign a subclass to a variable having a supeclass type, the
casting is performed automatically.
What is a Java package and how is it used?
A Java package is a naming context for classes and interfaces. A package
is used to create a separate name space for groups of classes and
interfaces. Packages are also used to organize related classes and
interfaces into a single API unit and to control accessibility to these
classes and interfaces.
How do you restrict a user to cut and paste from the html page?
Using Servlet or client side scripts to lock keyboard keys. It is one of
Page Numbers :
