Advanced JAVA Interview Questions You'll Most Likely Be Asked


This book is composed of two parts, a set of questions about the programming language Java and a set of generic questions commonly asked at job interviews. Some of the generic questions are:

*) Tell me about yourself
*) Describe your work ethic
*) Why do you want to work for this organization?

Giving solid responses to these questions is certainly an important component of a successful interview, but they are found in many other publications so they do not differentiate this book.
The primary value added in this book is as a primer on where the reader may need to refresh their knowledge in some advanced Java techniques. There are seven subcategories to the Java questions, and they are:

*) Object serialization
*) Generics
*) Threading
*) Servlet
*) Collections
*) Design patterns

Most of the questions are general in nature, but your ability to answer them will illustrate your depth of knowledge. Some of the questions are:

*) Name the IDL basic data types (in CORBA)
*) Does generic type information exist at runtime?
*) What are bounded queues?
*) Once de-serialization is done, what values will transient variables get?
*) What is the Façade pattern?
*) What is the default priority of a thread?
*) Where does a servlet run?

If you are interviewing for a job where your tasks may include applying any of these areas, then this book is an excellent place to begin your preparation for the interview.
