Hiring guide for Join Java Engineers

Join Java Developer Hiring Guide

Join Java is an extension of the Java programming language that supports join-patterns, a powerful concurrency and synchronization mechanism. This programming language allows developers to write concurrent programs in a simpler and more intuitive way than using traditional thread-based techniques. Join patterns provide a high-level abstraction for dealing with complex synchronization scenarios, making it easier to reason about the behavior of concurrent systems. The main goal of Join Java is to integrate this concept into mainstream object-oriented languages while preserving their semantics and design principles.

First 20 minutes

General Join Java app knowledge and experience

The first 20 minutes of the interview should seek to understand the candidate's general background in Join Java application development, including their experience with various programming languages, databases, and their approach to designing scalable and maintainable systems.

What are the basic principles of Object-Oriented Programming?
The basic principles of Object-Oriented Programming are encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction.
How would you handle exceptions in Java?
In Java, exceptions are handled using try, catch, and finally blocks. The try block contains the code that might throw an exception, the catch block catches the exception and handles it, and the finally block executes regardless of whether an exception occurred or not.
Describe the difference between an interface and an abstract class in Java.
An abstract class can have both abstract and non-abstract methods, while an interface can only have abstract methods. An abstract class can have instance variables, an interface cannot. A class can extend only one abstract class, but it can implement multiple interfaces.
What are the different types of collections in Java?
Java provides a variety of collections like ArrayList, LinkedList, HashSet, LinkedHashSet, TreeSet, PriorityQueue, ArrayDeque, HashMap, LinkedHashMap, and TreeMap.
How would you ensure thread safety in Java?
Thread safety in Java can be ensured by using synchronization, atomic classes, volatile keyword, and using thread-safe collections.

Next 20 minutes

Specific Join Java development questions

The next 20 minutes of the interview should focus on the candidate's expertise with specific backend frameworks, their understanding of RESTful APIs, and their experience in handling data storage and retrieval efficiently.

What is the purpose of the 'final' keyword in Java?
The 'final' keyword in Java is used to restrict the user. It can be used in many context such as: final variable, final method, final class. Once a final variable has been assigned, it always contains the same value. If a final method is inherited from a class, it cannot be overridden by any subclass. A final class cannot be subclassed.
Describe the difference between '== operator' and '.equals()' method in Java.
'== operator' checks if both objects point to the same memory location whereas '.equals()' method should be used for content comparison. '== operator' is a binary operator that compares the equality of two variables, while '.equals()' method compares the 'equality' of two objects.
What are Java annotations and what are they used for?
Java annotations are tags that we insert into source code for providing more information about the code. They do not have direct effect on the code they annotate. They are used for several purposes such as: generating code, informing the compiler, processing at runtime, and also for documentation.
How would you implement a singleton class in Java?
A singleton class in Java can be implemented by making the constructor private and writing a public static method that returns the instance of the class. This method is called a factory method.
Describe the difference between JRE, JDK, and JVM.
JVM is an abstract machine that provides a runtime environment in which Java bytecode can be executed. JRE is an implementation of the JVM which physically exists. It contains a set of libraries and other files that JVM uses at runtime. JDK is a bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based applications. JDK includes JRE and development tools.

The ideal back-end app developer

What you’re looking to see on the Join Java engineer at this point.

At this point, a skilled Join Java engineer should demonstrate strong problem-solving abilities, proficiency in Join Java programming language, and knowledge of software development methodologies. Red flags include lack of hands-on experience, inability to articulate complex concepts, or unfamiliarity with standard coding practices.

Digging deeper

Code questions

These will help you see the candidate's real-world development capabilities with Join Java.

What does this basic Java code do?
public class HelloWorld {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
 System.out.println("Hello, World!");
This is a very basic Java program. It prints the string 'Hello, World!' to the console.
What does this Java syntax do?
for(int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
This is a basic for loop in Java. It initializes an integer 'i' to 0, then prints the value of 'i' to the console each iteration while 'i' is less than 5, incrementing 'i' by 1 each time.
What does this Java code do with an array?
int[] nums = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
 for(int num : nums) {
This code defines an array of integers, then uses a for-each loop to iterate over each element in the array and print it to the console.
What does this Java code do with threads?
public class MyRunnable implements Runnable {
 public void run() {
 System.out.println("Running in a thread");
 Thread thread = new Thread(new MyRunnable());
This code defines a class that implements the Runnable interface, which means it can be executed in a separate thread. It then creates a new thread with an instance of this class and starts it, causing 'Running in a thread' to be printed to the console.

Wrap-up questions

Final candidate for Join Java Developer role questions

The final few questions should evaluate the candidate's teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills. Additionally, assess their knowledge of microservices architecture, serverless computing, and how they handle Join Java application deployments. Inquire about their experience in handling system failures and their approach to debugging and troubleshooting.

What is the purpose of garbage collection in Java, and when is it used?
Garbage collection is an automatic memory management system that frees up the memory occupied by objects that are no longer in use. It is used to prevent memory leaks and optimize the use of system resources.
How would you sort a list of objects in Java?
In Java, a list of objects can be sorted using the sort method of the Collections class. The objects in the list need to implement the Comparable interface and override the compareTo method.
What are the different types of inner classes in Java?
There are four types of inner classes in Java: non-static nested class (inner class), static nested class, local inner class (defined inside a block), and anonymous inner class.
