Core Java Interview Question Page 15


Question: What invokes a thread's run() method?

Answer: After a thread is started, via its start() method or that of the Thread class, the JVM invokes the thread's run() method when the thread is initially executed.

Question: What is the difference between the Boolean & operator and the && operator?

Answer: If an expression involving the Boolean & operator is evaluated, both operands are evaluated. Then the & operator is applied to the operand. When an expression involving the && operator is evaluated, the first operand is evaluated. If the first operand returns a value of true then the second operand is evaluated. The && operator is then applied to the first and second operands. If the first operand evaluates to false, the evaluation of the second operand is skipped.

Question: Name three subclasses of the Component class.

Answer: Box.Filler, Button, Canvas, Checkbox, Choice, Container, Label, List, Scrollbar, or TextComponent

Question: How many times may an object's finalize() method be invoked by the garbage collector?

Answer: An object's finalize() method may only be invoked once by the garbage collector.

Question: What is the purpose of the finally clause of a try-catch-finally statement?

Answer: The finally clause is used to provide the capability to execute code no matter whether or not an exception is thrown or caught.

Question: What is the argument type of a program's main() method?

Question: What is the difference between a break statement and a continue statement?

Question: Name two subclasses of the TextComponent class.

Answer: TextField and TextArea

Question: What is the advantage of the event-delegation model over the earlier event-inheritance model?

Answer: The event-delegation model has two advantages over the event-inheritance model. First, it enables event handling to be handled by objects other than the ones that generate the events (or their containers). This allows a clean separation

between a component's design and its use. The other advantage of the event-delegation model is that it performs much better in applications where many events are generated. This performance improvement is due to the fact that the event-delegation model does not have to repeatedly process unhandled events, as is the case of the event-inheritance model.
