We understand how interviews can make you all nervous and confused. It is very important that you stay calm and just focus clearly. Hear the questions and answer accordingly. Also, the best tip to get through an interview is confidence but certainly not overconfidence.

If you are unable to answer any question just simple say – I am sorry but I don’t know the answer right now but I will definitely make sure to find out or simply I am sorry but I don’t know the answer to this question. Don’t makeup answers and just blabber anything. It will be a big drawback for you.

So, without any further delay, let’s see what those 6 questions from Java are that will certainly be asked in an interview –

Interview Questions for Java –

1.       Why is Java not 100% object-oriented?

2.       Why is the Java platform independent?

3.       What is a map in Java?

4.       What is a copy constructor in Java?

5.       Why pointers are not used in Java?

6.       What is JDK?


Let us begin –

1.       Why is Java not 100% object-oriented?
Ans- Java is not 100% Object-oriented because it uses eight primitive data types that are not objects. Such as -
(i) Boolean
(ii) Byte
(iii) Char
(iv) Int
(v) Float
(vi) Double
(vii) Long
(viii) Short

2.       Why is the Java platform independent?
Java is platform-independent because of its byte codes which are capable of running on any system irrespective of the underlying operating system.

3.       What is a map in Java?
Map in Java is an interface that maps unique keys to values. It is not a subset so it behaves a little differently from the other collection types. Also, it does not include duplicate keys and each key can value max one value.

4.        What is a copy constructor in Java?
It is a member function used to initialize an object using another object of the same class. However, there is no need for a copy constructor in Java as all the objects are passed by reference.

5.       Why pointers are not used in Java?
Pointers are unsafe and increases the complexity of the program. Since java is known for its simplicity, adding pointers will become very contradicting. Also, direct access to memory by the user is avoided and that is why pointers are discouraged in Java.

6.       What is JDK?
JDK stands for Java Development Kit. It is a tool that helps in compiling, documenting, and packaging Java programs. It contains JRE and development tools.
