these Java Interview Questions have been designed especially to get you acquainted with the nature of questions you may encounter during your interview for the subject of Java Programming Language. As per my experience, good interviewers hardly planned to ask any particular question during your interview, normally questions start with some basic concept of the subject and later they continue based on further discussion and what you answer −
What do you know about Java?
Java is a high-level programming language originally developed by Sun Microsystems and released in 1995. Java runs on a variety of platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS, and the various versions of UNIX.
What are the supported platforms by Java Programming Language?
Java runs on a variety of platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS, and the various versions of UNIX/Linux like HP-Unix, Sun Solaris, Redhat Linux, Ubuntu, CentOS, etc.
List any five features of Java?
Some features include Object Oriented, Platform Independent, Robust, Interpreted, Multi-threaded
Why is Java Architectural Neutral?
It’s compiler generates an architecture-neutral object file format, which makes the compiled code to be executable on many processors, with the presence of Java runtime system.
How Java enabled High Performance?
Java uses Just-In-Time compiler to enable high performance. Just-In-Time compiler is a program that turns Java bytecode, which is a program that contains instructions that must be interpreted into instructions that can be sent directly to the processor.
Why Java is considered dynamic?
It is designed to adapt to an evolving environment. Java programs can carry extensive amount of run-time information that can be used to verify and resolve accesses to objects on run-time.
What is Java Virtual Machine and how it is considered in context of Java’s platform independent feature?
When Java is compiled, it is not compiled into platform specific machine, rather into platform independent byte code. This byte code is distributed over the web and interpreted by virtual Machine (JVM) on whichever platform it is being run.
List two Java IDE’s?
Netbeans, Eclipse, etc.
List some Java keywords(unlike C, C++ keywords)?
Some Java keywords are import, super, finally, etc.
What do you mean by Object?
Object is a runtime entity and it’s state is stored in fields and behavior is shown via methods. Methods operate on an object’s internal state and serve as the primary mechanism for object-to-object communication.
