Java Programming Interview Questions

Top 50 Java Programming Interview Questions

Recently I am taking a lot of interview for my organization. So I was in the search of some java programming test questions that are little bit tricky also.

Here I am providing five of the tricky questions I found interesting and need a closer look to understand. The explanation will be provided after the questions. Test your knowledge of java by trying to provide the answer of the below test questions.

Java Classloader

Java ClassLoader

The Java ClassLoader is one of the crucial but rarely used components of Java in Project Development. Personally I have never extended ClassLoader in any of my projects but the idea of having my own ClassLoader that can customize the Java Class Loading thrills me.

This article will provide an overview of Java Class Loading and then move forward to create a custom ClassLoader and use it.
What is a ClassLoader?

We know that Java Program runs on Java Virtual Machine (JVM). When we compile a Java Class, it transforms it in the form of bytecode that is platform and machine independent compiled program and store it as a .class file. After that when we try to use a Class, Java ClassLoader loads that class into memory.

There are three types of built-in Class Loaders in Java:

1. Bootstrap Class Loader – It loads JDK internal classes, typically loads rt.jar and other core classes for example java.lang.* package classes
2. Extensions Class Loader – It loads classes from the JDK extensions directory, usually $JAVA_HOME/lib/ext directory.
3. System Class Loader – It loads classes from the current classpath that can be set while invoking a program using -cp or -classpath command line options.

Java Class Loaders are hierarchical and whenever a request is raised to load a class, it delegates it to its parent and in this way uniqueness is maintained in the runtime environment. If the parent class loader doesn’t find the class then the class loader itself tries to load the class.

5 Ways to Read a File in Java – BufferedReader, FileInputStream, Files, Scanner, RandomAccessFile

In my last post, I was going through with different options we have for SimpleDateFormat. Today I am providing a program for reading file in Java.

I am using BufferedReader for reading the file because it buffers the input from the specified file. Without buffering, each invocation of read() or readLine() could cause bytes to be read from the file, converted into characters, and then returned, which can be very inefficient.

Here I am providing three functions.

1. Read complete file as String
2. Read file line by line and return list of String
3. Count the occurrence of a String in the given file.

AXIS2 Web Services Tutorial

40+ HTML5 Tutorials and Examples for Web Developers

In last few days I had read a lot about HTML5 and it seems to be way ahead in features compared to HTML4.01. I sincerely thank everybody for liking my last post about HTML5 features that will make our UI code cleaner by removing lot of Javascript. While trying out the features and learning HTML5, I had collected a list of tutorials that might come handy for web developers to learn and master HTML5. I hope this list will help you in learning and mastering HTML5 quickly.

HTML5 input, required, pattern, datalist

HTML5 Specs are out and all the leading browsers are making sure that they are compatible with it. As a web developer, we always need a lot of javascript for HTML form validation. I like some of these features that will reduce the javascript functions in the web page and make our page load faster.
