Face to Face Java Interview Series 48

Face to Face Java Interview Series 48

This interview is for Sr. Software engineer in Morgan Stanley for NY.

1. Can we orerride wait method – No you can not because its a native method on object class only below method from object class you can override.

You can override below:
equals(Object obj)

You can not override below:

notify() – You can orerride final method from object
notifyAll() – You can orerride final method from object
wait() – You can orerride final method from object
wait(long timeout)- You can orerride final method from object
wait(long timeout, int nanos) – You can orerride final method from object
getClass() – You can orerride final method from object

2. If you have two empty class can you extend this class

3. If interface A, B has same method which method will be overridden and why?

int test();

interface B {
int test();

public class InterfaceTest implements A, B{

public int test() {
return 0;


Answer: If you define two method with same name, return type and signature then in-effect there is only one method they are not identifiable. It will only give compilation errror if return type are differnt. This is work just as a general rule of method hiding, overriding, inheritance and declarations.

There is only one @Override is required because int test() are same so “@Override-equivalent” (JLS 8.4.2)

4. What will be return by following method:

int methodA(){

try {
return 1;
} catch (Exception e) {
return 2;
} finally{
return 3;

return 4;

Answer: It will give you compile time error. return 4 is unreachable and other condition it will return 3 from finally as shown below:

public class RetrunTest {

public static void main(String[] args) {


static int methodA(){

try {
return 1;
} catch (Exception e) {
return 2;
} finally{
return 3;

//return 4;


5. What is explain plan in database

7. Can you write a query which will return only even value from the table using Oracle rownum
8. What is difference between Procedure and function
9. What is difference between comparable and comparator interface
10. What method you override from object class for object compare and why
11. Why you override hashcode and equal and what you achieve
12. What is the contract between hashcode and equals
13. What is hahsmap how it works
14. Whas is hashing can you explain me
