  Q1. Difference between == and .equals() ?Core Java
Anonymous
Ans. "equals" is the method of object class which is supposed to be overridden to check object equality, whereas "==" operator evaluate to see if the object handlers on the left and right are pointing to the same object in memory.

x.equals(y) means the references x and y are holding objects that are equal. x==y means that the references x and y have same object.

Sample code:

String x = new String("str");
String y = new String("str");

System.out.println(x == y); // prints false
System.out.println(x.equals(y)); // prints true

Advanced level question. Frequently asked in High end product companies. Frequently asked in Cognizant ( Based on 2 feedbacks )
  Q2. Why is String immutable in Java ?Core Java
Anonymous
Ans. 1. String Pool - When a string is created and if it exists in the pool, the reference of the existing string will be returned instead of creating a new object. If string is not immutable, changing the string with one reference will lead to the wrong value for the other references.

Example -

String str1 = "String1";
String str2 = "String1"; // It doesn't create a new String and rather reuses the string literal from pool

// Now both str1 and str2 pointing to same string object in pool, changing str1 will change it for str2 too

2. To Cache its Hashcode - If string is not immutable, One can change its hashcode and hence it's not fit to be cached.

3. Security - String is widely used as parameter for many java classes, e.g. network connection, opening files, etc. Making it mutable might possess threats due to interception by the other code segment.

 Q6. Why Char array is preferred over String for storing password?Core Java
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. String is immutable in java and stored in String pool. Once it's created it stays in the pool until unless garbage collected, so even though we are done with password it's available in memory for longer duration and there is no way to avoid it. It's a security risk because anyone having access to memory dump can find the password as clear text.

Not frequently asked as it was introduced with Java 8.
 Q8. Difference between final and effectively final ? Why is effectively final even required ?Core Java
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. Final variable means a variable that has been declared final and hence cannot be de referenced after initialization. Effective final means a variable that has not been declared final but haven't been reassigned the value after initialization.

First is the regulation that restricts the reassignment and will raise a compilation error if we try to do so. Second is the outcome without the restriction.

Effective Final is the eventual treatment of the variable that is required for many features. For eq - Java 8 requires that local variables referenced from a lambda expression must be final or effectively final.It means all local referenced from lambda expressions must be such that their value shouldn't be changed after initialization whether declared final or not.

 Q10. Are constructors inherited? Can a subclass call the parent's class constructor? When?Core Java
Anonymous
Ans. You cannot inherit a constructor. That is, you cannot create a instance of a subclass using a constructor of one of it's superclasses. One of the main reasons is because you probably don't want to override the superclasses constructor, which would be possible if they were inherited. By giving the developer the ability to override a superclasses constructor you would erode the encapsulation abilities of the language.

 Q14. Why HashTable has been deprecated ?Core Java2016-07-08 10:01:58

Ans. HashTable has been Deprecated as an alternative ConcurrentHashMap has been provided which uses multiple buckets to store data and hence much better performance than hashtable. Moreover there is already a raw type hashmap. The only difference between the HashTable and HashMap is that Hashtable is synchronized whereas HashMap is not. Most of the synchronized collections have been deprecated and their raw alternative have been presented as preferred.

Synchronization has a cost. Using synchronized collection at a place where there is hardly any need of it would means useless utilization of resources. As these collections are rarely used in static context or shared among threads, Java might have thought it better to just provide the raw collection and let developer implement synchronization if he feels the need to do so.

As HashMap has been presented as default and preferred way of using Map with read optimized hashing, and ConcurrentHashMap has been provided for synchronized access which provides better performance than HashTable, Java thought it right to deprecate the use of HashTable.

 Q15. Can we declare static variables as transient ?Core Java2017-01-12 11:12:48

Ans. It's weird that compiler doesn't complain if we declare transient with static variable because it makes no sense. At least a warning message saying "transient is useless in this situation" would have helped with code cleaning.

Static variables are never serialized and transient is an indication that the specified variable shouldn't be serialized so its kind of double enforcement not to serialize.

It could be that as it makes no different to the variable behavior and hence using both keywords with a variable are permitted.

List list1 = new ArrayList<>();
list1.add(5);
list1.add("5");
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. If we don't declare the list to be of specific type, it treats it as list of objects.

int 1 is auto boxed to Integer and "1" is String and hence both are objects.

 Q22. What is PermGen or Permanent Generation ?Core Java
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. The memory pool containing all the reflective data of the java virtual machine itself, such as class and method objects. With Java VMs that use class data sharing, this generation is divided into read-only and read-write areas. The Permanent generation contains metadata required by the JVM to describe the classes and methods used in the application. The permanent generation is populated by the JVM at runtime based on classes in use by the application. In addition, Java SE library classes and methods may be stored here.

Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. The Permanent Generation (PermGen) space has completely been removed and is kind of replaced by a new space called Metaspace. The consequences of the PermGen removal is that obviously the PermSize and MaxPermSize JVM arguments are ignored and you will never get a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen error.

 Q41. Why Java provides default constructor ?Core Java
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. At the beginning of an object's life, the Java virtual machine (JVM) allocates memory on the heap to accommodate the object's instance variables. When that memory is first allocated, however, the data it contains is unpredictable. If the memory were used as is, the behavior of the object would also be unpredictable. To guard against such a scenario, Java makes certain that memory is initialized, at least to predictable default values before it is used by any code.

 Q42. Why String is popular HashMap key in Java?Core Java
Admin
info@buggybread.com
Ans. Since String is immutable, its hashcode is cached at the time of creation and it doesnt need to be calculated again. This makes it a great candidate for key in a Map and its processing is fast than other HashMap key objects. This is why String is mostly used Object as HashMap keys.

 Q51. What are design situations to use Singleton and Prototype Design Pattern ?Design2016-07-28 20:28:43

Ans. Both are creational design patterns.

Singleton is used when we would like to reuse an object if object is not supposed to hold request or thread specific information. Inversely Prototype is used in situations where we would like to reuse the object information but the request / thread may require it own data to be persisted.

In short, Singleton is used in situations where we can live with single object being shared across multiple requests or threads whereas Prototype is used when we need duplicate copies of objects.

 Q53. What is serialVersionUID ?Core Java2016-12-20 17:26:52

Ans. Everytime an object is serialized the java serialization mechanism automatically computes a hash value by passing the meta information for the class. This id is used during deserialization to verify that the sender and receiver of a serialized object have loaded classes for that object that are compatible with respect to serialization

 Q58. Why Java doesn't provide a default constructor if we define an argument constructor ?Core Java2017-03-10 09:58:43

Ans. Java provides a default constructor ( no argument ) if no constructor is provided by the programmer. Java makes a check during pre compilation if there is any constructor provided by the programmer. If any constructor is provided, Java understands that programmer has provided all the mechanism for initialization and construction of the object and may not even intend to create objects by calling a no argument constructor. For example - One may like to have objects created with self defined state otherwise restrict its creation.

We make the constructor private if we want to make a class singleton as we would like to restrict creation of new objects using new operator and default constructor. Similar could be the situation wherein we would like to construct objects in a particular manner only.
