What is a transient variable?
Transient variable is a variable that may not be serialized.
Which containers use a border Layout as their default layout?
The window, Frame and Dialog classes use a border layout as their default layout.
Why do threads block on I/O?
Threads block on i/o that is enters the waiting state so that other threads may execute while the i/o Operation is performed.
How are Observer and Observable used?
Objects that subclass the Observable class maintain a list of observers. When an Observable object is updated it invokes the update method of each of its observers to notify the observers that it has changed state. The Observer interface is implemented by objects that observe Observable objects.
What is synchronization and why is it important?
With respect to multithreading, synchronization is the capability to control the access of multiple threads to shared resources. Without synchronization, it is possible for one thread to modify a shared object while another thread is in the process of using or updating that object's value. This often leads to significant errors.
Can a lock be acquired on a class?
Yes, a lock can be acquired on a class. This lock is acquired on the class's Class object.
Is null a keyword?
The null value is not a keyword.
What is the preferred size of a component?
The preferred size of a component is the minimum component size that will allow the component to display normally.
What method is used to specify a container
The setLayout method is used to specify a container's layout.
Which containers use a FlowLayout as their default layout?
The Panel and Applet classes use the FlowLayout as their default layout.
What state does a thread enter when it terminates its processing?
When a thread terminates its processing, it enters the dead state.
What is the Collections API?
The Collections API is a set of classes and interfaces that support operations on collections of objects.
Which characters may be used as the second character of an identifier,but not as the first character of an identifier?
The digits 0 through 9 may not be used as the first character of an identifier but they may be used after the first character of an identifier.
What is the List interface?
The List interface provides support for ordered collections of objects.
How does Java handle integer overflows and underflows?
It uses those low order bytes of the result that can fit into the size of the type allowed by the operation.
What is the Vector class?
The Vector class provides the capability to implement a growable array of objects
What modifiers may be used with an inner class that is a member of an outer class?
A non-local inner class may be declared as public, protected, private, static, final, or abstract.
. What is an Iterator interface?
The Iterator interface is used to step through the elements of a Collection.
What is the difference between the >> and >>> operators?
The >> operator carries the sign bit when shifting right. The >>> zero-fills bits that have been shifted out.
Which method of the Component class is used to set the position and
How many bits are used to represent Unicode, ASCII, UTF-16, and UTF-8 characters?
Unicode requires 16 bits and ASCII require 7 bits. Although the ASCII character set uses only 7 bits, it is usually represented as 8 bits. UTF-8 represents characters using 8, 16, and 18 bit patterns. UTF-16 uses 16-bit and larger bit patterns.
What is the difference between yielding and sleeping?
When a task invokes its yield method, it returns to the ready state. When a task invokes its sleep method, it returns to the waiting state
Is sizeof a keyword?
The sizeof operator is not a keyword.
What are wrapped classes?
Wrapped classes are classes that allow primitive types to be accessed as objects.
Does garbage collection guarantee that a program will not run out of memory?
Garbage collection does not guarantee that a program will not run out of memory. It is possible for programs to use up memory resources faster than they are garbage collected. It is also possible for programs to create objects that are not subject to garbage collection
What restrictions are placed on the location of a package statement
A package statement must appear as the first line in a source code file excluding blank lines and comments.
Can an object's finalize method be invoked while it is reachable?
An object's finalize method cannot be invoked by the garbage collector while the object is still reachable. However, an object's finalize method may be invoked by other objects.
Name three Component subclasses that support painting?
The Canvas, Frame, Panel, and Applet classes support painting.
What is clipping?
Clipping is the process of confining paint operations to a limited area or shape.
What is a native method?
A native method is a method that is implemented in a language other than Java.
