Interview Questions and Answers

 Q1. what is fail fast and Fail Safe in collections?Core Java
Ans. Iterators in java are used to iterate over the Collection objects.

Fail-Fast iterators immediately throw ConcurrentModificationException if there is any addition, removal or updation of any element.

Fail-Safe iterators don't throw any exception if a collection is structurally modified while iterating over it. This is because, they operate on the clone of the collection and not on the original collection.
