JAVA
Object Oriented Program is a programming approach in which a problem domain is characterized as a set of objects that have a specific attributes and behavior. The objects are manipulated with a collection of functions called methods or services. The objects are classified into classes and subclasses. (or) An Object Oriented Programming organizes a program around its data, i.e., objects and a set of well-defined interfaces to that data. An object-oriented program can be characterized as data controlling access to code. Java is an Object Oriented Programming (OOP) language used to design an application, which will run securely over the network1 and work on wide range of platforms. J2SE: - J2SE stands for Java 2 Standard Edition , it is a specification used to develop fundamental java application they may be standard or network. J2SE= Core Java + Advanced Java J2SE:- Java2 StandardEdition J2EE:- Java2 EnterpriseEdition J2EE: - J2EE stands for Java 2 Enterprise Edition, it is a specification used to develop business solutions for network (or) J2EE is a specification that provides an environment to run the web components and the enterprise components. J2ME:- Java2 MicroEdition J2ME: - J2ME stands for Java 2 Micro Edition, it is a specification used for developing wireless and Embedded System. Embedded System is software, which directly installed into hardware.

Protocol: - This is also a program; it is a specification of set of rules to be followed by a computer in network. When to send/receive data How to send/receive data Hand Shaking: - This means two Computers establishing a connection communicating with each other and finally disconnecting is called Frame Hand shaking. A Packet represents a group of bytes. IP means Internet Protocol Packet address this is unique address this is given to Computers. TCP/IP:- Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. Client: - A Client is a machine that sends a request for some services to other Computer. Server: - Server is a machine that receives requests from the Clients and provides services to the Client requests. The main advantage of a network is resources sharing. Web application:- A web application is a collection of Servlets, HTML pages, Classes and other resources that can bundle and run on the multiple Containers from multiple Vendors. ResourcesSharing: Sharing memory

ISP: - It stands for Internet Service Provider. ISP is a person or an organization, who provides connection into internet. ISP should take direct connection to internet. (www.internic.com). Bandwidthis a group of frequency. American Congress Library is a biggest Library in the World; the second biggest Library is Lenin Glad Library in Masco, (Russia). Q) Whatis an Interface?***** Ans: - An Interface defines a protocol of behavior that can be implemented by any class anywhere in the class hierarchy. An interface defines a set of methods but doesnt implement them. A class that implements the interface agrees to implement all the methods defined in the interface, thereby agreeing to certain behavior. An interface is a named collection of method definitions (without implementations). An interface can also declare constants. Internet: - Internet is a network of Computers existing on the earth. Internet is a global network of all networks existing on the earth. ConnectingInternettypes:DialupConnection: Dialup connection main advantage is affordable to any one. Disadvantage of Dialup connection is slow. There is no security for data. 2. Leasedline Connection:- It is a direct connection to internet.

Advantages: High Security for data Lightening Speed (i.e. high speed) Disadvantages: Highly expensive. The web browser2 software is installed on Internet Client. Ex: - Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Fire fox, Netscape Navigator etc The software that should be installed on Internet Server is Web Server. WebServer:- A web server is a server that provides the implementation of HTTP protocol. Ex: - Internet information Server (IIS), Apache Web Server, etc Application Server: - An Application Server is a product that provides the facilities like taking care of transactions, taking care of security and simplifies the development of business logic (or) Application servers provides you with common middleware services, such as resource pooling, networking and more. Application server allows you to focus on your application and not worry about the middleware you need for a robust server side deployment. Ex: - Microsoft Transactions Server (MT Server) from Microsoft, EJB containers like WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss etc Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is widely used protocol on internet. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) , when we download a file from Internet. Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is used to send mails on the internet. Post Office Protocol (POP) is used to receive mails.

Sun Microsystems is developed the JVM program. JVM convert byte codeinstructioninto machinecode. JVM understand every byte code instructions.

JVM:- Java Virtual Machine is a program. It is not a machine. Page 4 of 191

COREJAVA
JVM will understand the byte code instruction & it will convert the byte code instructions into P IV processor understandable machine language instructions. JVM will convert the byte code instructions into any type of processor understandable machine language instructions . Javaprogramssystemindependent. JVMis systemdependent. Depending on operating system we have to download the operating system related JVM program. .classfile is systemindependent. JVM is making as Java system independent. Portability means giving same results on any type of system or machine. SecurityProblemson Internet:1. Evesdropping:- Reading others data illegally on Internet, is called Eves dropping. 2. Tampering:- Not only reading others data but also modifying it on Internet, is called Tampering. 3. Impersonation:- A person acting as another person on Internet is called impersonation. 4. Virus:- Virus is a harmful program that can damage data, software & hardware of a system. Virus was first developed by Pakistanis. Virus will spread to *.exe, *.sys, *.doc. but *.txt files cannotcarryvirus. Solution for eves dropping & tampering encryption/decryption. Encryption means converting data into understandable data. Decryption means converting data back to readable form. For impersonation, solution is digital signature file, containing personal information for identify the person in encrypted form. Digital signatures are developed in java. Solution for virus is .class file. Security manager is program that identifies illegal code and information security polices. A .classis a text file viruscant be affected. WhyJavais suitablefor Internet: Security problems on Internet are eliminated through java. Java is a system independent; Java is executable on any platform. In 1990, Sun Microsystems inc., USA is developed software for remotes. (James Gosling). In 1993, Oak language is developed, by that time some company is registered Oak name, for this reason they named as Java. In 1995, Sun world conference has given entire details of Java. Featuresof Java :1. Simple: - Java is a simple programming language, learning and practicing java is easy because of its resemblance (Similarity) with C, C++. 2. ObjectOriented:- Unlike C++, Java is a purely object oriented programming language. Java= C++- Complexity An object is existing of everything in the world is an Object. An object has properties & performs actions. Objectinitializationprocess:Default values initialization expressions initialization blocks constructors Defaultvalues:float, double 0.0F,0.0 boolean false Reference variable null (not referring any object) Char \u000 (or) a space String Null My class Null 3. Distributed: - Java is designed for use on networks. It has extensive libraries, which work in agreement with TCP/IP5. Java uses protocols like HTTP6 & FTP.

4. Robust: - Java programs will not crash because of its exception handling and its memory management feature. Pointersare eliminatedfromJavadueto: 1. These are lead to complex programs 2. Using pointers harmful programs are written. 3. Pointers may crash a program. Method is a function; Function represents set of instructions to perform the results. A method must be starts with lowercase. A method will returns a void or any valid return type. A method can be inheritedandit canbe overloadedor overridden.A methodhas calledexplicitly. Functioncanbe writteninside& outsideof the class, but a method is a function, it is writtenonly insideof a class. A functioncan be called& executeditself. Q) Whatis the differencebetweenmethodand function?***** Ans: - A method is a function written only inside of a class but functions can be written any where in class i.e. inside or outside of the class. In java we will write only methods. Writing a function outside the class is not possible in java. Methods or functions can store only some temporary variables or local variables, but not permanent variables. A class is a model or idea or plan to create objects or Class is a group of objects. Class doesnt exist really becauseit is only an idea but objectsexist really. A class will also contain variables & methods. An object will also contain variables & methods. In every java program we must create a single class. C++ is not purely Object oriented programming Internet is a distributed technology. Java is suitable for distributed technology. Robust means strong, in java we can write strong programs. Exception means runtime error JVM will allot memory to what ever we required memory. Unused memory released or free it by JVM Garbage Collector will delocate or removes memory for unreferenced or unused objects and variables. Garbage Collector can be called explicitly but there no gurantee that the garbage collector executes or not at that point. Q) Whatalgorithmis usedby garbagecollectorto removevariablesor objectsfrommemory?***** Ans:- Mark & Sweep algorithm.

Q) Whatis the differencebetween.exe and.classfile? ***** Ans: - .exe file contains machine language instructions for the microprocessor. It is system dependent. .class file contains byte instructions for JVM. It is system independent. In JVM class loader sub system will allot the memory required for program. Garbage memory delocates the memory. 5. Secure: - Java is designed for use on internet. Java enables the construction of virus-free, tamper free systems. 6. Architecture Neutral: - Javas byte code is not machine dependent. It can be run any machine with any processor and any operating system. 7. Portable: - Java does not have implement-dependent aspects. So the results will be same on all machines. Portable means yielding same results on different machines. 8. Interpreted:- Java programs are compiled to generate bye code. This byte code can be downloaded and interpreted by the interpreter. JVM contain interpreter.

COREJAVA
9. High performance:- Along with interpreter there will JIT (Just in time compiler) , which enhances the speed of execution. Variable: - An item of data named by identifier. Each variable has a type, such as int or object and a scope. ReferenceVariable:- A data element whose value is in an address. LocalVariable:- A data item known within a block, but inaccessible to the code outside the block. For example, any variable defined within a method is a local variable and cant be used outside the method. A local variable life cycle ends when the execution of method completed. A local variable should declared within a method body and it must be initialized when we are declaring in a method, because it doesnttakesdefault values. PathVariable:- It is exterenal command file. A pathvariableis usedto specifywherethe executablefiles are. Ex: - javac.exe, java.exe, javap.exe etc. Argument:- A data item specified in a method called an argument. An argument can be a literal value, a variable or an expression (or) an argument is a value that is passed to the method when it is invoked. Parameter:- While defining a method, variables passed in the method called as parameter (or) Parameters are variables defined by method that receives values when a method is called. Parameters are useful to pass the variables from objects to the constructor. Method parameters are local variables to receive the data from out side for method. Parametersare usefulto receivethe valuesfromoutsideto mainmethod. Whatis the differencebetweenparameterandargument?***** Ans: - While defining method, variables passed in the method called as parameter. While using those methods, values passed to those variables called arguments. Process: A virtual address space containing one or more threads (or) a program under execution is also called as process. Peer: - In networking, any functional unit in the same layer as another entity. Expression:- An expression is a series of variables, operators, and methods calls, (constructed according to the syntax of the language) that evaluates to single value. Howwouldyou detectandminimisememoryleaksin Java:In Java memory leaks are caused by poor program design where object references are long lived and the garbage collector is unable to reclaim those objects. Detectingmemoryleaks: Use tools like JProbe,OptimizeIt etc to detect memory leaks. Use operating system process monitors like task manager on NT systems, ps, vmstat, iostat, netstat etc on UNIX systems. Write your own utility class with the help of totalMemory() and freeMemory()methodsin the Java Runtimeclass . Place these calls in your code strategically for pre and post memory recording where you suspect to be causing memory leaks. An even better approach than a utility class is using dynamic proxies or Aspect Oriented Programming(AOP) for pre and post memory recording where you have the control of activating memory measurement only when needed. Minimisingmemoryleaks: In Java, typically memory leak occurs when an object of a longer lifecycle has a reference to objects of a short life cycle. This prevents the objects with short life cycle being garbage collected. The developer must remember to remove the references to the short-lived objects from the long-lived objects. Objects with the same life cycle do not cause any issues because the garbage collector is smart enough to deal with the circular references. JVMArchitecture:- JVM 1.4.1 version developed by Hotspot.

Classloadersubsystemdoesthe followingthings:1. It will load .class file into memory (RAM) 2. It will verify byte code of that .class file. 3. It will allot the required memory for the program. This memory is divided into five parts; they are called runtime data areas. 1. Methodarea: - It stores classcode , staticvariables , staticblocks and methodcode . 2. Heaparea: - Objects are created on Heap. JVM creates objects on Heap. 3. Java Stacks:- Java stacks are used to executethe java methods . Java stackswill haveframes . On each frame a separatemethodis executed. 4. PC Registers:- These registers contain the addressof that instructionto be executedby the processor. 5. Native method stacks: - It is a method written in a language other than java. Native method stacks places when native methods are executed. Note: - Native method interface linksheaderfiles to a nativemethodwhile it is being executing. Execution engine contains interpreter & JIT compiler , which translates byte code into machine language. How JIT compiles converts byte codes. Ex: print a; 2sec For Interpreter print b; 2sec Repeat the loop 10times; JIT Compiler Processor print a; 2 + 2 memory

Hotspot is the block code of given to JIT compiler for execution. 10. Multithread:- Thread means an execution or processing group of statements. Executing different parts of a program simultaneously at a time by using more than one thread is called Multithreading. This is an essential feature of to design server side programs. 11. Dynamic: - It means at runtime, we can develop programs in java, which dynamically change on Internet. (Ex: Applets). In java entire memory will be dynamic memory. JavaProgramming : Comments represent description of the features of a program.

The main advantages of comments are readability7 of the program is increased.

There are 3 types of comments in Java. They are


7

Readability = Understandability.
Page 8 of 191

COREJAVA
1. Singleline comments:- It represents only one line as comment. Single line comments start with //. Ex: //Welcome INet Solv //welcome to Java 2. Multi line Comments:- They represents a group of lines as comment. They starts with /* and end with */ Ex: - /*Welcome to India*/ 3. JavadocumentationComments:- They starts with /** and end with */. Ex: - /**Welcome to BTCE*/ These comments are useful to create .html documents from .java programs. API Document: - API stands for Application programming Interface. It is a .html document that contains description of all the features of a software or a product or a technology. API document does not contain code. Javadoc complier is used for this. Comments are non executable statements. These 3 types of comments are not executable by java compiler or JVM compiler. In Java we can define/write any number of classes in a single class. Out of n number of classes we are writing in a single class only one can be defined as public class, because the name of the class should be public class. If we need all the classes as public we have to decalred/write sepeartely each class as public. ExampleProgram:/*This is our first Java program. To display a message Author: INet Solv team Version8: V 1.0 Project: Proxyz 1.11 */ //Starting a program in Java import java.lang.system; import java.lang.string; or in the place of two steps directly we can write as below import java.lang.*9; class First Java library { 10 main () It contains group of packages { --------------Packages --------------It is a sub directory & it contains --------------group of class/interfaces } Class/Interfaces }

It contains group of methods Methods

Q) Whatis the differencebetween#includeandimportstatements?***** Ans: - #include makes C/C++ compiler to copy the header file into a C/C++ program. Thus it wastes the memory and processor time. import will makes the JVM to go to a particular class, it executes the code there and then it comeback to the program and substitute the results in the program. JRE:- It stands for Java runtime environment. JRE= JVM+ Javalibrary If java programs have to run we required the JVM and java library. JVM will starts execution of java program from main method only.

String represents group of characters. Array represents group of elements. Array denotes with [ ] The values passed to the main method are called command line arguments. Void means no value (i.e. it returns no value). import java.lang.*; class First { main11() { ------------------------------------} } To call methodthereare twosteps:1. To create on object to the class to which method belongs Classname obj = new12 Classname(); Ex: - First f = new First(); (f = object) 2. Call the method using object name.methodname Obj.methodName(); Ex: - f.main(); Objectsare createddynamically(runtime)by JVM Staticmethod:- It is a method that can be called and executed without creating an object. Public: - It means available outside the object. JVM will not run the public without writing String args[]. JVM could not executes the main method. For single character in java we have to write in single quotations like as a and for integer dont write in any quotations. 13 System .out14: - Out is a variable of a system class. It is a static variable or filed. Save the name with in double quotations to avoid the extension of .txt. System.out.println(): System: - System is a predefined final class which is defined in java.lang package that provides the access to the system resources like Keyboard, monitor etc and to get and set the properties associated with java runtime system. All the methods in the System class are static methods. SystemClass:- A System class will have static members, they are as follows below PrintStream out, err InputStream in; arrayCopy(Object[ ], st, end, Object[ ], st) exit(int) loadLibrary(String) get/setSecurityManager(SecurityManager) String getProperty(String) String getProperties(String str) (getProperties() method is usefull to get the JVM name, version, properties of JVM and etc.). Properties getProperties() (Property is a class in java.util package and getProperties() method is usefull to set/get the property of a class, etc.). gc() out: - out is a static variable defined in a System class of the type PrintStream class, which provides all of the formatting capabilities we have been using from the system file handler or out is the PrintStream object. println(): - println() is a built-in overloaded method in the out object or the PrintStream object supports the print() or println() methods for all data types. We canprovidea securityfor a classas below: public static void main(String args[ ]){

Ex: - byte r.no = 10 (0 - literal) Literal means the constant value being directly storing into variable. long x = 150L; L means take that number forcibly as long integer to allot the memory as user defined. float data types:- They can handle numbers with decimal points. Such numbers called floating data type. Subtype: S. No. 1. 2. Datatype (Single precision ) float Double precision Memorysize 4 bytes 8 bytes Min & Maxvalue -3.4e38 to + 3.4e38 -1.7e308 to + 1.7e308

Q.) Whatis the differencebetweenfloat anddouble?***** Ans:- float can represents up to 7 digits after decimal point accurately. Double can represents up to 15 digits after decimal point accurately. Ex: - float PI = 3.142F; F represents forcing the JVM to take the value as float because JVM defaultly takes any decimal values as double. Characterdata type: - It represents a single characters. S.

Q) Whatis Unicode?***** Ans:- Unicode is specification that includes the alphabetic of all international languages into java character set. Unicode uses 2 bytes to represent single character.

4. Stringdata types:- String represents a group of characters. Strings are objects of string class in java. Ex: - String name Inet solv; String str = new String (A String); Booleandata type: - They store either true or false. It can handle only two values. Ex: - boolean response = true; Completelist of Javakeywords:abstract char double for int private strictfp throws assert Transient:- A value of an instance variable in a class will not persistent when the object is stored, such an instance variable can be specified as transient variable, indicating that its value need not be saved when objects of its classes are put in persistence storage or it prevents fields from ever being serialized. Transient fields are always skipped when objects are serialized. Transient variables arent appropriate for equals()and hashCode() methods. Note: - That the transient modifier cannotbe specifiedfor static variables as these do not belong to objects. Volatile: - In multithreading environment, threads might cache the values of member variable for efficiency reason. Since threads can share a variable, it is then vital that reading & writing of the value in the copies and the master variable do not result in any inconsistency. As these variables values could be changed unexpectedly. The volatile modifier can be used to inform the compiler that it should not attempt to perform optimization on the variable. instanceOf: - The instanceof operator is used for object reference variables only, and you can use it to check whether an object is of a particular type. By type, we mean class or interface-in other words, if the object referred to by the variable on the left side of the operator passes the IS-A test for the class or interface type on the rightside. Even if the object being tested is not an actual instantiation of the class type on the right side of the operator, instanceof will still return true if the object being compared is assignment compatible with the type on the right. class A { public static void main (String [] args) { String s = new String("foo"); if (s instanceof String) { System.out.print("s is a String"); } } Operator:- An operator is a symbol that represents an operation. ` a+b ( a, b are operands, + is the operator) Operand:- An operand is a variable on which operator acts upon. An operator may act upon a single operand. It is called unary operator. If an operator acts upon two operands is called binary operand. If an operator acts on three operands is called ternary operand. Operatorsin Java:1. ArithmeticOperators:+ * / %

Dot Operator(.): a) To refer a classin a package:- java.util.Date b) To refer a methodin class:math.pow() emp.getsal() c) To refer a variablein a class:Employee.name, emp.name 10. InstanceofOperator:- To test whether an object belongs to a class. Ex: - emp instanceof Employee. Arithmetic Operators: - These operators perform basic arithmetic calculations like addition, subtraction, etc Ex: a = 13, b = 5 S. No. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Operator + * / % Meaning Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Modulus operator (Remainder of division) Example a+b ab a*b a/b a% b Result 18 8 65 2.6 3

UnaryOperatorsor Unaryminus(-) Operator:- This operator negates the value of a variable. (Negation means converting value into + value vice versa). Ex: int x = -5; System.out.printlin(x); -5 System.out.printlin(-x); 5 System.out.printlin(-(-x)); -5 System.out.printlin(-(-(-x))); -5 IncrementOperator(++): - This operator increases the value of a variable by one. Ex: int x = 1; ++x 2 x++ 3 x=x+14 Writing ++ before a variable name is called pre incrementation. Writing ++ after a variable name is called post incrementation. In pre incrementation, incrementation is done first any other task is done next. In post incrementation any other task is done first, incrementation is done at the end. Ex. 1: - int x = 1; int x = 1; S.o.println(x); S.o.println(x) S.o.println(++x); S.0.println(x++); S.o.println(x); S.o.println(x); Output Output 1 1 2 1 2 2

Ex. 2: - a = 1; a = 1; b = 2; b = 2; a = ++b; a = b++; a=3 a=2 b=3 b=3 Ex 3: - What is the value of the following expression, if a = 7? ++a*a++; [ b ] a) 49 b) 64 c) 56 d) 72 e) None of these DecrementOperator(--): - This operator decreases the value of a variable by one. int x = 1; --x 0 x-- -1 x=x1-2 Writing before a variable is called pre decrementation, writing after a variable is called post decrementation. AssignmentOperator(=): 1. It is used to store a value into a variable. Ex: - int x = 15; 2. It can store the value of variable into another variable. Ex: - int y = x; 3. It can store the value of an expression into a variable. Ex: - int z = x + y 10; Note: - At the left hand side of assignment we should use only one variable. CompactNotation:a = a + 10 a +=10 b = b 100 b -=10 j=k*j j *=k i = i/10; i/=10 p = p%10 p%=10 Relational Operators: - These operators are useful to compare two quantities. They are used to constant conditions. > < >= <= == != Ex: if(a>b)..; if(a==100); if(x!=y)...; Logical Operators:- These operators are useful to combine more than one condition. Combining more than one condition called Compound condition. && - and || = or ! - not Ex: if(a>b && b>c)...; if(a==100||b=50)...; if(!(x==1)); BooleanOperator:- These operators act upon Boolean variables and they return Boolean value. & Boolean and | Boolean or boolean a = true; boolean b = false; a & b - false a & a - true b|b - false !a - false !b - true BitwiseOperators:- These operators act upon individual bits of a number. Convert45 into binary:- Divide the number successively by 2 and table remainders from bottom to top. 45 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 22 1 11 0 51

Ex: int x = 10; -3 ~x = -11; Bitwiseand(&): - This operator performs anding operations on individual bits -4 a b a & b This table is called truth table. It means, it shows 0 0 0 0 input and output bits 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 AND gate Ex: - x = 10 y = 11, x & y =? x = 0 0 y = 0 x&y = 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0

Bitwisezero fill right shift (>>>): Q) Whatis the difference>> and>>>?***** Ans:- >> shifts the bits towards right and also preserves the sign bit (0 for positive and 1 for negative sign). >>> also shifts the bits towards right but does not preserve the sign bit. It always fills the sign bit with 0. For this reason it is called zero fill right shift. Ex: //Bitwise operators class Bits{ public static void main (String args[ ]){ byte x,y; x = 10; y = 11; System.out.println(~x = +(~x)); System.out.println(x & y = +(x&y)); System.out.println(x | y = +(x|y)); System.out.println(x ^ y = +(x^y)); System.out.println(x << y = +(x<<y)); System.out.println(x >> y = +(x>>y)); } } TernaryOperator:- This operator acts on three variables i.e. it will takes three variables. This operator works like a conditional if-else statement. So this operator is called as conditional operator. Syntax:var = exp1?exp2:exp; max = (a>b)?a : b; (or) if(a>b) max = a; else max = b; dot (.) operator:1. packagename.classname (to refer classname) java.io.BufferedReader 2. classname.var or objectname.var (to refer variable) System.out emp.name 3. classname.method() or objectname.method() (to refer method)] Math.sqrt() br.read instanceOfoperator: - It is denoted as instanceof. It is used to test whether the object belongs to that class or not. Syntax:- objectname instanceof classname Ex: br instanceof BufferedReader This operator returns true of false i.e Boolean values. Executing the statements one by one by JVM is called sequential execution. In sequential execution programmers does not have better control on the flow of execution. In Random execution the programmer can executive any statement directly or repeatedly. This gives better control for the programmer on the flow of execution. Random execution is possible by using control statements.

Page 18 of 191

COREJAVA
Control Statements : - Control statements modify the flow of execution and give better control for the programmer on the flow of execution. Without control statements programmers can not able to write better programs. 1. ifelse statement 4. for loop 7. continue statement 2. do.while loop 5. switch statement 8. return statement 3. while loop 6. break statement A loop can be executed repeatedly. A statement can be executed once only. Ifelse statement: - This statement performs a task (one or more statement) depending upon whether a condition is true or not. Syntax1:if(condition) statement1; [else statement2;] Ex: //Test if a given number is +ve or ve class Demo { public static void main (String args[ ]) { int x; x = -15; if(x==0) System.out.println(It is zero); else if(x>0) System.out.println(x+ is positive); else System.out.println(x+ is negative); } } C:\rnr\javac Demo.java C:\rnr\java Demo Output:-15 is negative. Syntax2: if(condition1) if(condition2) if(condition3) statement1; else statement2; else statement3; else statement4; Dowhileloop: - This loop repeatedly executes a group of statements as long as a given condition is true. Storing starting value into the variable is called initialization. Syntax:- do { statements; }while(condition); Ex: //To display numbers from 1 to 10 Class Demo { public static void main(Static args[ ]) { int n = 1; do{ System.out.println(n+ ); n++; }while(n<=10); } } C:\rnr\javac Demo.java

COREJAVA
C:\rnr\java Demo Output:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Whileloop:- This loop repeatedly executes a group of statements as long as a condition is true. Syntax:while(condition) { (statements); } Ex: //To display even numbers up to 10 class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { int i = 2; while(i<=10) { System.out.println(i); i = i + 2; or i +=2; [ i += is called compact notation] } } } (or) //To display even numbers up to 10 class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { int i = 2; while(i<=10) { System.out.println(i +=2); } } }

Q) Dowhileandwhile loops,whichloopis efficient?***** Ans:- While loop is efficient. Right from beginning of the execution it provides control to the programmers. for loop: - This loop repeatedly executes a group of statements as long as a condition is true. Syntax:for(exp1; exp2; exp3) { statements; } exp1 is initialization expression, exp2 is checking condition expression as long as the condition is true. exp3 is modifying the value of variable. Ex: for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++) { System.out.println(i); } Note: - We can write for loop without exp1 or exp2 or exp3 or any two expressions or all three expressions. Ex: //Demo of for loop class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ])
Page 20 of 191

COREJAVA
{ for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++) { System.out.println(i); } } } (or) int i = 1; for( ; ; ) { System.out.println(i); i++; if(i>10)break; } Infinite loop[for( ; ; )]: - Infinite loop is a loop, which executes forever. These are drawback of programs. It is a bad programming. for( ; ; ) do{ while(true) { statements; { statement; }while(true); statements; } } Note: - We can write a for loop inside another for loop. This type for loop is called Nested for loop. Ex: for(int i = 1; i<=3; i++) { for(int j = 1; i<=4; j++) { statements; } } SwitchStatement:- This statement is useful to selectively execute a task from a group of available tasks. Syntax:switch(var) { case value1: statement1; case value2: statement2; case value3: statement3; ----------------------case valuen: statementn; [default: default statement;] } Ex: //Using Switch class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { char color = g; switch(color) { case r: System.out.println(Red); break; case g: System.out.println(Green); break; case b: System.out.println(Blue); break; case w: System.out.println(White); break;

COREJAVA
default: System,out.println(No Color); } } } Switchstatementmoresuitablefor menudrivenprograms. Break:- Break is a statement, which is useful to come out from the loop. Break is useful to the come out of the switch statement. It is used in three ways. 1. To come out of a loop. 2. It is used to come out of a switch block. 3. Break is used to goto end of a block19. Syntax:- break blockname; Q) gotostatementsare not availablein java why?***** Ans:- 1. goto statements are decreases the readability of a program. 2. goto statements form infinite loops. 3. goto statements make documentation20 of program very difficult. 4. goto is not part of structured programming. Factorial representation of all the steps of an algorithm is a flow chart. Algorithm consists step by step to solve a program. Ex: //break as goto class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { boolean x = true; bl1: { bl2: { bl3: { System.out.println(Block 3); if(x==true) break bl2; } System.out.println(Block 2); } Systen.out.println(Block 1); } System.out.println(Out of all); } } Continue: - This statement continues the next repetition of a loop and sub sequent statements are not executed. Syntax:- continue; Ex: //Continue class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { for(int i = 10; i<=1; i--) { if(i>5)continue; System.out.println(i); } } }

returnstatement:1. It is used to come out of a method to the calling method. Syntax:- return; 2. return statement can return a value to the calling method. Syntax:return x; return y; return (x+y); Ex: //return statement in main() class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]); { int x = 1; System.ot.println(Before return); if(x==1)return; // or we can use as here System.exit(0); in the place of above statement return; System.out.println(After return); } } [ Where in System.exit(0), System is a class name and exit is a method.]

Whatis the differencebetweenSystem.exit(0)and System.exit(1)?***** Ans:- System.exit(0) is represents normal termination. System.exit(1) is represents termination with errors. Homeworkprograms:Page 23 of 191

COREJAVA
1. To print odd no.s upto 100? 2. Test whether a no. is even or odd? 3. Test whether a no. is prime or not? 4. Display a multiplication table? 5. Calculate factorial of given no.? 6. Display the stars in this below form? * * * * * * * * * * Acceptinginput fromKeyboard:Stream: - It represents flow of data from one place to another place . To move data we need stream. There are two types of streams are available. 1. Input Stream:- It receives or reads data. 2. OutputStream:- It sends or writes data to some other place. Streams are represented by classes in java.io.package. Keyboard is represented by System.in [ System is a class] System.in InputStream obj Keyboard System.out PrintStream obj Monitor System.err PrintStream obj Monitor

Q) Whatis the differencebetweenSystem.out()andSystem.err()?***** Ans:- System.out is used to display normal messages and results. Ex: - System.out.println(A normal message); System.err is used to display error messages. Ex: - System.err.println(Error message); Streams are represented by input/output devices. By using streams we can handle hardware components even though Input/output are channel we need not to change the stream in java program. Thus we are achieving system independent. InputStreamReader:- InputStreamReader reads the data from keyboard.

BufferedReader
BufferedReader: - It is one type of InputStreamReader. It is connected to InputStreamReader. It accepts the data form InputStreamReader. 1. Attach the keyboard to InputStreamReader. To create an object InputStreamReader Class obj = new Class() System.in InputStreamReader obj = new InputStreamReader(System.in); 2. Attach the InputStreamReader to BufferedReader BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(obj); 3. Read data from BufferedReader using read() or readLine() methods. Ex: //Accepting a single char from Keyboard. import java.io.*; class Input { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException21 { //Attach the keyboard to InputStreamReader InputStreamReader obj = new InputStreamReader(System.in); //Attach the InputStreamReader to the BufferedReader BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(object); //read data from BufferedReader System.out.println(Enter a single char: ); Char ch = (char)br.read();
21

Exception:- It means runtime error. Page 24 of 191

COREJAVA
System.out.println(You Entered: + ch); } } br.read() returns int values so we have to use (char) before the br.read() to give in char value [ Char ch = (char)br.read();] Converting one data type to another data type is called typecasting or casting . ( ) is called as casting operator. When we are using read() method in rare conditions we will get runtime errors, so to eliminate this error we have to use throws IOException. read() method cannot read more than one character. Acceptinga String:String ch = br.readLine(); readLine takes 255 characters. Ex: //Accepting int value import java.io.*; class Input { public static void main(String args[ ])throws IOException { //create BufferedReader object to accept data from keyboard BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.print(Enter int No. ); String str = br.readLine(); int n = Integer.parseInt(str); //parseInt(str) is a static method in Integer class System.out.println(Number =+n); } } parseInt(str) is a Static method in a integer class Acceptinga float Numberfromkeyboard:Same as above but in the place of int n = Integer.parseInt(str); We have to write float n = Float.parseFloat(str); (or) float n = Float.parseFloat(br.readLine()); Acceptinga doublefloat Number:Same as above double n= Double.parseDouble(br.readLine()); Ex: //Accept & display Employee Details import java.io.*; class Input { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { // To accept data from keyboard BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); //Accept Employee Data System.out.print(Employee ID: ); int id = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine)); System.out.print(Employee sex: ); Char sex = (char)br.read(); br.skip(2); System.out.print(Employee Name: ); String Name = br.readLine(); //Display Employee Data System.out.println(Employee Data: ); System.out.println(ID :+id); System.out.print(Sex :+sex); System.out.print(Employee Name :+Name); }

} br.skip(2) is used to eliminate the enter key = \r. Because when we are using br.read () & br.readLine() it will get. Programs: 1) Accept 2 numbers from keyboard & find the result of their addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. 2) Print even nos between m & n 3) Print Fibonacci series (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,) 4) Print prime no series (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17,...) ARRAY:An Array represents a group of elements of same data type. We can represent several elements in a single array. There are 3 types of arrays 1. One dimensional array (1D) 2. Two dimensional array (2D) 3) Multidimensional array (3D, 4D, 5D,.) Onedimensionalarray: - A One dimensional array represents a single row or a single column of elements. Ex: - Marks obtained by a student in 5 subjects are: 55 64 66 74 24 CreatingOnedimensionalarray:- There are 2 ways 1. We can create 1D array by declaring & initializing it directly. Ex: int marks[ ] = {55,23,87,34,56}; Memory allocated by JVM is 55 57 68 70 69 [0] [1] [2] [3] [4] Marks 55 = marks[0] or Marks[ i ] where i is an integer number that indicates position of the element in the array. i is also called as index. Index represents the position of an element in the array. One dimensional array consists only one index. float x[ ] = {1.5f, 2.of,3f}; char ch[ ] = {a, b, c} ; String name[ ] = {raj, kamal, sita}; 2) WeScan create a 1D array by using new operator and later we can store the elements in that array. Ex: int marks[ ] = new int[10]; marks[0] = 50; marks[1] = 60; marks[2] = 80; Double sal[ ] = new Double[100]; String s[ ] = new String[50]; NOTE:- arrayname.lengthgivessize of array ; Ex: // Find total & percentage of marks import java.io.*; class Arr1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //To accept data from keyboard BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.println(How many subjects? ); int n = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); //Create array with size n int marks[ ] = new int[n]; //Store marks into array for(int i=0; i<n; i++); { System.out.print(Enter marks: ); marks[ i ] = Integer,parseInt[br.readLine(); } //Find Total int tot = 0;
Page 26 of 191

COREJAVA
System.out.println(The array elements are: ); for(int i = 0; i<n; i++) { System.out.println(marks[ i ]); tot = tot + marks[ i } //Display the total marks System.out.println(Total marks = + tot); //Calculate percentage float percent = (float) tot/n; //(float) is a cast operator System.out.println(Percentage = + percent); } } By default arrays are created in C,C++ on static memory, but in java every thing is created on dynamic memory Only one for is enough to handle One dimensional array. TwoDimensionalArray(2D Array):- 2D array represents several rows & columns of elements. Ex: - A class students are obtained marks in 5 subjects. Student1 50, 51, 52, 53, 54 Student2 60, 61, 62, 63, 64 Student3 70, 71, 72, 73, 74 Creating2D array:1. We can declare and initialize directly. Ex: int marks[ ] [ ] = {{ 50, 51, 52, 53, 54}, {60, 61, 62, 63, 64}, {70, 71, 72, 73, 74}}; JVM allot memory for the above array like below.

r1 r2 r3
C0 C1 C2 C4 1D array is a combinations of several 1D array marks[ i ] [ j ] In this i and j are indexes. i represents as row position and j represents as column position. 2D array consists 2 indexes. Ex: float marks[ ] [ ] = {{ 1.1f, 1.2f, 1.3f, 1.4f, 1.5f}, {2.1f, 2.2f, 2.3f, 2.4f, 2.5f}, {3.1f, 3.2f, 3.3f, 3.4f, 3.5f}}; 2. We create 2D array using new operator and we can store elements in to it. int marks [ ] = new int[3] [5]; char ch[ ] = new char[100] [100]; Ex: // To display a 2D array in a matrix Class Arr1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) { float marks[ ] [ ] = {{ 1.1f, 1.2f, 1.3f, 1.4f, 1.5f}, {2.1f, 2.2f, 2.3f, 2.4f, 2.5f}, {3.1f, 3.2f, 3.3f, 3.4f, 3.5f}}; System.out.printl(In matrix form: ); for(int i = 0; i<3; i++) { for(int j = 0; j<4; j++) { System.out.println(x[ i ] [ j ] + \t); } System.out.println(); } }

} The outer most for loop represents row of matrix and inner most for loop represents column of matrix. for this matrix to find total of matrix same as above and then add below program float tot = 0; for(int i = 0; i<3; i++) { for(int j = 0; j<4; j++) { tot = tot + [ i ] + [ j ]; } ( Parameter is useful to receive values from outside to the main method.) C:\>java prog 10 11 12 Command line 10 args[0] 10 Command line argument 11 args[1] 12 arg[s2] Command line arguments are stored in args[0], args[1], args[2]. Command line arguments are the values passed to the main method at the time of running a program. Ex: //Program finds args length class Args { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //find no. of args. int n = args.length; System.out.println(No. of args = +n); //Displays args for(int i = 0; i<n; i++) System.out.println([args[ i ]); } } 13. Add two matrices (or 2D arrays) and display their sum of matrix. Also display the total of their elements. 14. Find the transpose of given matrix.

Whatare differencesbetweenArrayandVector:Array 1. The size of the array needs to be declared in an advance. An array is denoted as [ ] 2. Once declared array cant grow in size. 3. Array can store primitive data types like int, char, float, double . 4. Array is not synchronized. Vector 1. No need to declare the size of vector. We may give its size or you may not. 2. Vector can always grow in size if we start adding more elements to it then its size will grow. 3. Storing the primitive data types is not possible in case of Vector. It can store only object references. 4. Vector is synchronized.

Whydo youwantto converta collectioninto an Array:1. To obtain faster processing time for certain operation. 2. To pass an array to a method that is not overloaded to accept a collection. 3. To integrate your newer, collection based code with legacy code that doesnt understand collection.

String: - A string represents a group of characters. A string means character array in C-Language, but a string doesnt means character array. A string represents an object of string class. String class is created in java.lang package. Stringclassis declaredas final class . Stringclasscan not extendanotherclass . Stringclassprovidesthe followingfunctionalityfor handlingStrings:1. Creating and initializing String. 2. Reading individual characters in a String. 3. Comparing Strings. 4. Changing the case of characters in a string (toUpperCase/toLowerCase) 5. Concatenating String. 6. Searching for characters and sub Strings 7. Extracting sub strings 8. Conversion of objects to Strings. CreatingStringclassobject:1. We can create a string by directly storing a string into string class object. Stringstr = Hello ; Where as String is a class name str is object name (referring the memory) 2. We can create a string object using new operator. Stringstr = newString(Hello); 3. We can create a string from a character array char arr[ ] = {H, e, l, l, o}; Stringstr = newString(arr); String str = new String(arr, 1, 3); Here 1 represents the 1st character 3 represents No. of characters. All will be displayed writing string like above. java.lang. String: - In String class methods available as below. 1. Stringconcat(Stringstr): Concatenates22 the calling string with str. Note: - + will also do the same String s1 = Hydera; String s2 = bad; String x = s1.contact(s2); + is called as concatenation operator. 2. int length:- returns the length of a string. int n = s1.length(); 3. char charAt(int index):- It receives the integer number and returns the character at the specified. s1.charAt(2) 4. int compare To(String str): - returns a negative value if the string comes before str. in dictionary order. A positive value if the string comes after str, or 0 if the strings are equal. Ex: String s1 = Boy; String s2 = Box; Here ASCII value of B = 66, o = 109, x = 118, y = 119 s1 = Boy = 66 109 119 s2 = Box = 66 109 118 0 0 1 HereOutputis 1 int n = s1. compareTo(s2); When s1< s2 it will gives negative s1> s2 it will gives positive s1= s2 it will gives 0 It compare with dictionary form, i.e. which strings comes first & next.

5. int compareToIgnoreCase(Stringstr): - returns a negative value if the string comes before str. in dictionary order. A positive value if the string comes after str, or 0 if the strings are equal. It ignores the uppercase or lowercase. 6. booleanequals( Stringstr): - returns true if the string equals str. It is a case sensitive comparison. 7. boolean equals Ignore Case(String str): - returns true if the string equals str. This case insensitive comparison. 8. booleanstarts With(Stringprefix): - returns true if the string starts with prefix. 9. booleanends With(Stringsuffix): - returns true if the string starts with suffix. Note: - Above two methods use case sensitive comparison. str.startsWith(This); ------- true str.endsWith(book); ------- true 10. int index Of(Stringstr): - return the first occurrence of str in the string.

COREJAVA
String str. = This is book; int n = str.indexOf(is); 11. int lastIndex Of(Stringstr): - returns the last occurrence of str in the string. int n = str.lastIndexOf(is); Note: - Both the above methodsreturn negativevalues, if str not found in the calling string. Count starts from 0. 12. String replace(char oldChar, char new Char): - returns a new string that is obtained by replacing all characters oldChar in the string with newChar. 13. String substring(int begin Index): - returns a new string consisting of all characters from beginIndex until the end of the string. Ex: String str = INetSolv; str.substring(4); It returns solv str.substring(0,4); It returns INet 14. String substring(int begin Index, int endIndex): - returns a new string consisting of all characters from beginIndex until endIndex (exclusive). 15. StringtoLower Case(): - Converts all characters into lowercase. 16. StringtoUpperCase(): - Converts all characters into uppercase. 17. String trim(): - Eliminates all leading and trailing spaces. The spaces found before the string are called leading spaces and the spaces are found after the string are called trailing space. 18. Stringintern(): - A string that is created using the shorthand notation is known as a canonical string. You can use the Strings intern method to return a canonical string, which is the same string that is created using the shorthand notation. 19. toCharArray():- Returns character array (char[ ]). Ex: //Understanding Strings class Str { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create 3 different strings String s1 = This is java; String s2 = new String(I like it); char arr[ ] = {I, N, e, t, , S, o, l, v}; String s3 = new String(arr); //Displays the string System.out.println(s1 = + s1); System.out.println(s2 = + s2); System.out.println(s3 = + s3); //Find no. of chars in s1 System.out.println(Length of s1 = + s1.length()); //Attach s1 and s2 System.out.println(s1 joined with s2 = + s1.concat(s2)); //Join 3 strings using + (concatenation operator) System.out.println(s1+ at + s3); //Check if s1 starts with This or not boolean x = s1.startsWith(This); if(x==true) System.out.println(s1 starts with This); else System.out.println(s1 does not starts with This); //Extraxt sub string from s2 and s3 String p = s2.substring(0,6); String q = s3.substring(0); System.out.println(p+q); //Convert the case of s1 System.out.println(Uppercase s1 = + s1.toUpperCase);

System.out.println(Uppercase s1 = + s1.toLowerCase); } } //Comparing the Strings class Compare { public static void main(String args[ ]) { String s1 = Hello; String s2 = new String(Hello); if(s1==s2) System.out.println(Both are same); else System.out.println(Both are not same); } } s1, s2 are reference variables but it is not content of objects. To compare contents of objects we have to use as below statement if(s1.equals(s2)) We can use the above statement in the place of if(s1==s2) in the above program Usingequals()://Comparing the Strings class Compare { public static void main(String args[ ]) { String s1 = Hello; String s2 = new String(Hello); if(s1.equals(s2)) System.out.println(Both are same); else System.out.println(Both are not same); } } Output:- Both are same. Ex: public class TwoStrings { public static void main(String[] args) { String s1="anand"; System.out.println(Hashcode of s1 = + +s1.hashCode()); String s2=new String("anand"); System.out.println(Hashcode of s2 = + +s2.hashCode()); if(s1==s2){ System.out.println(1); } else{ System.out.println(2); } if(s1.equals(s2)){ System.out.println(3); } else{ System.out.println(4); } } } Output:Hashcodeof s1 = 92955274 Hashcodeof s2 = 92955274 Ex: Page 32 of 191

Q) Whatis the differencebetween== and equals()methodin comparingtwo string?***** Ans:- == compares the references, so it gives unreliable results. equals() method compares the contents of string class objects. So we should use equals method for comparing two strings.

Q) Whatis the result for the followingprogram? String s1 = aaa; String s2 = aaa; a. s1==s2; true (or) false b. s1.equals(s2); true (or) false Ans:- a and b both are true.

String s1 = aaa; String s2 = new String(aaa); a. s1==s2; true (or) false b. s1.equals(s2); true (or) false Ans:- Here a is false and b is true.

If the two objects are equal, their hashcodes must be equal as well. Typeof Objects:1. Immutable objects. 2. Mutable objects. ImmutableObjects:- It is an object, whose contents of objects cant be modified. String class objects are immutable. Ex: //String class objects are immutable**** s1 Hello class Test { Hai public static void main(String args[ ]) s2 { String s1 = Hello; Hello String s2 = new String(Hai); Hai s1= s1+s2; System.out.println(s1); } } When ever you want string modified here JVM will create another object and store Hello Hai and assigns s1 to that s1 is disconnect with Hello. Garbage collector comes & delete (Hello) unreferenced objects. MutableObjects:- It is an object, whose contents of objects can be modified. StringBuffer class objects are mutable. All the data manipulation methods are available in StringBuffer class only.
Page 34 of 191

COREJAVA
StringBuffer methods act on the nvoking object, but objects can change without an explicit assignment in the statement. StringBuffer can change without creating a new object. StringBuffer class objects are mutable. StringBuffer class is also a final class. So StringBuffer class also cannot extend another class. Both String and StringBuffer classes are defined in java.lang. Thus they are available to all programs automatically. StringBuffer class implements dynamic character String. StringBuffer equals() method is not overridden; it doesnt compares values. StringBufferclassprovidesthe followingfunctionalityfor handlingStrings:1. Constructing StringBuffers. 2. Changing, deleting and reading characters in StringBuffer. 3. Construction Strings from StringBuffer. 4. Appending, inserting and deleting in StringBuffer. 5. Controlling StringBuffer Capacity. CreatingStringBuffer: 1. StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(Hello); 2. StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(50); //Empty StringBuffer java.lang. StringBuffer Methods:1. StringBuffer append(x): - Appending means adding at the end of StringBuffer. x may be int, float, double, char, String or StringBuffer. It will be appended to the calling StringBuffer. It will be inserted into the StringBuffer at offset (at the middle it will insert). 2. StringBuffer insert(int offset, x): - x may be int, float, double, char, String or StringBuffer. It will be inserted into the StringBuffer at offset (at the middle it will insert). 3. StringBuffer delete(intstart, int end): - Removes the characters sequence in the StringBuffer. 4. StringBuffer reverse():- Reverses the character sequence in the StringBuffer. 5. StringtoString(): - Converts string buffer into a String and return the string object. 6. int length():- returns the length of the StringBuffer. Q) Whystringobjectsare immutable?***** Ans:JVM will takes more time to reallocate memory for the same object than creating new object. i.e. JVM will takes more time to modify contents of objects in strings. JVM will take less time to create new string class object so string objects are always immutable.

Q) Whatis the differencebetweenString& StringBuffer?***** Ans:- String class objects are immutable. StringBuffer objects are mutable. All the data manipulation methods are available in StringBuffer class only. (or) String 1. String class objects are immutable. 2. String class overrides equals() and hashcode() methods of object class. 3. String class can be used as key in the HashMap or Hashtable. 4. It provides room for exact number of characters 5. There are no data manipulation methods in the class. StringBuffer 1. StringBuffer class objects are mutable. 2. StringBuffer class doesnt overrides equals() and hashCode() methods of object class. 3. StringBuffer class can not be used as key in the HashMap or Hashtable. 4. It provides room for 16 more characters 5. All the data manipulation methods are available in this class.

Q) Canyou extendthe Stringclass& StringBuffer class?*****

Page 35 of 191

COREJAVA
Ans: - No, we can not extend both classes because both classes are predefined final classes, which means that neither of these classes may be subclassed. Both String and StringBuffer implement the CharSequence interface. Ex: //Full name of a person Import java.io.*; class Full { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //To accept data from keyboard BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.println(Enter Surname: ); String sur = br.readLine(); System.out.println(Enter Middle Name: ); String mid = br.readLine(); System.out.println(Enter last Name: ); String last = br.readLine(); //Create StringBuffer StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(); //Append sur, last to sb sb.append(sur); sb.append(last); //Insert mid after sur int n = sur.length(); sb.insert(n, mid); //Display the Full Name System.out.println(Full Name = + sb); System.out.println(In reverse = + sb.reverse()); System.out.println(sb); } } StringsHomeWork:13. Sort a given group of strings into alphabetical order? 14. Test whether a given string in palindrome or not? Palindrome is a string = reverse string. Ex: rnr = rnr C, Pascal, COBOL, FORTRON, such types of languages are called procedural languages. We will write function or procedures in these languages C++, Java languages are called Object Oriented languages. Q) Whatis SRS?***** Ans:Software requirement specification is a document that contains requirements of the client and strategies to fulfill these requirements. Project Leader will prepare SRS.

Q) Whatis SDS?***** Ans:SDS means Software Design Specification. It is a document consisting of Input/Output screens, pseudo codes, dataflow diagrams, software and hardware requirements and databases etc used to develop the products. Module is a part of developing software. Procedural languages can not handle bigger projects. 1. In procedural approach the programmers concentration will be on the problem and its solution. We need another approach where the entire system is studied and then only software is developed. 2. In procedural approach, when program size exceeds 10000 lines of code and before reading 100000 lines of code the programmers suddenly loosing control on the code. So we need another approach to develop bigger and complex projects and still the programmer will loose his control.
Page 36 of 191

COREJAVA
3. Procedural approach doesnt reflect human beings life. We another approach, where programming reflects human beings life. Because of the above reasons, a new approach object oriented programming system (OOPS) has been developed. OOPS is a methodology that uses objects & classes in writing programs. OOPS concept has been developed on human beings life. Q) Whatis OOPS?***** Ans:An Object Oriented Programming organizes a program around its data, i.e., objects and a set of well defined interfaces to that data. An object-oriented program can be characterized as data controlling access to code.

Featuresof OOPS:1. Object: - An object is any thing that exists in the world. An object will have properties and actions. Variables and methods are available in object. Objects are two types 1. MutableObjects: - Whose contents of objects can be modified. 2. ImmutableObjects:- Whose contents of objects can not be modified. An object is super class for all the classes. The methods in the object class are as follows: Method object clone() boolean equals(Object object) void finalize() final Class getClass() int hashCode() String toString() final void notify() final void notifyAll() final void wait() final void wait(long milliseconds) final void wait(long milliseconds, int nanoseconds) equals(), hashCode() and toString() methods are public. finalize() method is protected. The critical methods in class Object are equals(), finalize(), hashCode() and toString() methods. We can not override getClass(), notify(), notifyAll() and wait() methods because they are declared as final, but we can override remaining methods in the object class. Examplesof getClass(): String getName() Class getSuperClass() Class[ ] getInterfaces() Method[ ] getMethods() Constuctor[ ] getConstuctors() java.lang.reflect Field[ ] getFields() Method[ ] getDeclaredMethods() Constuctor[ ] getDeclaredConstructors() Field[ ] getDeclaredFields() Object newInstance() Q) Whatwill storein oblectsandwhatwill storein the stacks?***** Ans:- Instance means object. Instance variables are loaded in the objects, but objects are dynamically created by JVM on the heap area of class loader subsystem.
Page 37 of 191

Purpose Creates a new object that is the same as the object being cloned. Determines whether one object is equal to another. Called before an unused object is recycled. Obtains the class of an object at run time. Returns the hash code associated with the invoking object. Returns a string that describes the object. Resumes execution of a thread waiting on the invoking object. Resumes execution of all threads waiting on the invoking object.

Waits on another thread of execution

COREJAVA
The Stack space will used to store parameters of the methods and local variables of a method. The JVM is responsible for allocating some amount of memory space called as stack space for every thread. (If there are 10 threads in JVM, then there will be 10 different stack spaces, but there will be only one Heap space. Ex: class TestAcc { int i; void me() { System.out.println(i); } public static void main(String[ ] args) { TestAcc a=new TestAcc(); a.me(); System.out.println(a.i); } } (or) Ex: class TestAcc { static int i; public static void main(String[ ] args) { System.out.println(i); } } Class:- A class is a model to creating an object. Class will not exit physically. Without a class we cannot create objects. But a class can exist without objects. Class also will have variables (data) and methods (code). There are three class access modifiers: public, protected, private. There are four access levels: public, protected, default, private. Classes can also be modified with final, abstract or strictfp. A class cannot be both final and abstract. A final class prevents inheritance i.e a final class cannot extends the other class. 2. Encapsulation:- Bundling up of data & methods as a single unit is called Encapsulation. Class is an example for encapsulation. The main advantage of encapsulation is programmers can use same names in the two different classes, still there will not be any problem. 3. Abstraction:- Showing necessary data and hiding unnecessary data from the user is called abstraction. 4. Inheritance: - Producing new classes from an existing class is called inheritance. The newly produced class will have all the qualities of the existing class plus it can have its own qualities. The reusability is the main advantage of Inheritance. 5. Polymorphism: - This word is comes out from the two words of Greek Words. Poly means many and morphism means forms. Polymorphism means many forms. If something exists in different form it is called Polymorphism. If same method performs various tasks it is called as polymorphism. 6. Messagepassing:- Calling a method is called as message passing. Q) Whyjava is objectorientedlanguage?***** Ans:- Java obeys all the features of OOPS. (The above 6 features)

Q) Whatis the differencebetweenobjectorientedlanguages& objectbasedlanguages?***** Ans:- Object oriented languages follow all the features of OOPS. Ex: - C++, Java
Page 38 of 191

COREJAVA
Object based programming languages contain all the features of oops except inheritance. Ex: - Smalltalk, Simula67 etc Object is an instance of a class. Ex: //A class and object class Person { //Properties vars String name; int age; //Actions methods void talk() { System.out.println(Hello I am +name); System.out.println(My age is +age); } class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]); { Person p1 = new Person(); System.out.println(p1.hashcode()); } } new operator (new person()) will create the object, objects are created JVM on dynamic memory. HCGA Hash code generation Algorithm memory address HCGA hash code Hash code is produced or generated from memory address. Hash code & memory address are not same. Hash code is the reference of the object. A class is called user defined datatype. The variables which are stored in objects are called instance variables. Method codes are stored in method area. The unique code or ID of every objects which is allotted by JVM. When the instance variables are not initialized java compiler uses some default values to initialize them. It gives initial values on the data type. S. No. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Datatype Int Float Double Char String Any class DefaultValue 0 0.0 0.0 A space Null Null

(Anyclassnull meansemptyobjects)

Initializingthe instancevariables:1. We can initialize the instance variables of a class in another class. another class { p1. name = Subba Rao; p1.age = 22; p1.talk();
Page 39 of 191

COREJAVA
} } There is no security of data will be across by other class. To give security for instance variables we give there instance is private. This offers full security. This private is also call as access specifier. AccessSpecifier: - An access specifier is a keyword that represents, how to access (read) the members of a class. There are four types of access specifiers. 1. Private: - A private member of a class is not available any where outside the class or makes a method or a variable accessible only from within its own class. 2. Public: - A public members of a class are accessible any where outside the class or makes a class, method or variable accessible from any other class. 3. Protected:- A protected members are available outside the class. It is like as public members or makes a method or a variable accessible only to classes in the same package or subclasses of the class. 4. Default Specifier: - If no specifier is used java compiler uses a default specifier. Default members are available outside the class. 1. The instance variables may not available if they are declared as private. 2. We can initialize the instance variables by directly storing values at the time of their declaration. This way of initialization will store same data in all the objects. This way of initialization is suitable for constant. A constant is a variable which will have a fixed value. Ex: - final Double pi = 3.14159 3. To initialize the instance variable we can use the constructor. Constructor: - A constructor is similar to a method, which is used to initialize the variables or objects. There are two types of constructors. Parameters, which passes the variables from objects to the constructor. A constructor will have same name of that of its class. A constructor will not return any value, not even void. The default return value of constructor is class. Constructors cannot be overridden, because constructors are not inherited into classes. The main purpose of constructor is to set the initial state of an object when the object is creating using new operator. A constructor can be directly invoked by another constructor (using a call to super() or this()). this() and super() methods cannot be in the same constructor. We can have one or the other, but never both. Interfaces do not have constructors. Interface is not part of an objects inheritance tree. Abstract classes can have constructors that are called when concrete sub class is instantiated. Only static variables and methods can be accessed of the call to super() or this(). Constructors can be overloaded, writing two or more constructors with same name but with difference in the parameters is called as constructor overloading. When you create an object to sub class the super class constructor is also available to sub class. Super class default constructor is also available to sub class. Super class parameterized constructor is not available to sub class. Constructor can use any access modifier even private also. If a constructor is declared Constructor as private in a class then it will creates only one object to its class, that type of classes are called as Singleton classes. SingleTonClassCode: class SingleTon { private static SingleTon st=null; private SingleTon() { System.out.println(\nIn constructor); } public static SingleTon stfactory() { if(st==null) st=new SingleTon(); return st;
Page 40 of 191

COREJAVA
} } (or) public class OnlyOne { private static OnlyOne one = new OnlyOne(); private OnlyOne(){ } //Private constructor. This class cannot be instantiated from outside. public static OnlyOne getInstance() { return one; } } To use it: //No matter how many times you call, you get the same instance of the object. OnlyOne myOne = OnlyOne.getInstance(); Restrictions:1. Modifiers other than the accessibility are not permitted (Ex: - abstract, static and final etc..). 2. Constructors cannot specify exception in the header. Constructorexecutionoccursas follows: The constructor calls its superclass constructor, which calls its superclass constructor, and so on all the way up to the Object constructor. The object constructor executes and then returns to the calling constructor, which runs to completion and then returns to its calling constructor, and so on back down to the completion of the constructor of the actual instance being created. Typesof Constructors:1. Default constructor:- It is a constructor without parameters. 2. ParameterizedConstructor:- This will have one or more parameters. Note: - A constructor is called and executed only once at the time of creating an object to the class. DifferencebetweenConstructorand Method: Constructor 1. Constructor is a special kind of method used to instance of a class. 2. Constructor doesnt return any type, not even void also. 3. Constructor will have the same name of that its class. 4. Constructor prevents the inheritance. 5. We can over load but we cannot overridden. 6. This refers to another constructor in the present/same class. 7. Super refers to invoke the super class constructor. 8. Constructor will automatically invoke when an instance of class is created. Ex: //default constructor person() { name = Vishnu; age = 30; } //action-methods //parameterized constructor person(String s, int a) { name = s; (or) this.name = name;
Page 41 of 191

Method 1. A method is a function, it represents group of statements to perform tasks. 2. Method can return void or valid return type. 3. As a name except the class method name, begin with lower case. 4. Method can be inherited. 5. We can over load and overridden. 6. This refers to instance of class. 7. Execute an overridden method in the super class. 8. Method has called explicitly.

COREJAVA
age = a; (or) this.age = age; } //action-methods public void talk(); System.out.println(Hello I am +name); Where String s & int a are local variables to receive data from outside.

Q) Whatis the functionaldifferencebetweendefault constructorandparameterizedconstructor?* Ans:- Default constructor is used to initialize every object with same data. Parameterized constructor is used to initialize each object with different data. (or) Default Constructor 1. A constructor without any parameters is called as default constructor. 2. Default constructor is used to initialize every object with same data. 3. Super Class default constructor is available to its subclass. 4. Java compiler creates a default constructor, when the programmer did not provide any type of constructor in a class. ParametrizedConstructor 1. A Constructor with one or more parameters is called parametrized constructor. 2. Parameterized constructor is used to initialize each object with different data. 3. Super Class parametrized constructor is not available to its subclass. 4. Java compiler did not provide the paramerized constructor to the class. The programmer has to provide the parametrized constructor in a class.

Note1:- Java compiler creates a default constructor or with default values when no constructor is provided by the programmer, then the java compiler provides default constructor. Note2: - Writing two or more constructors with the same name but with difference in the parameters is called as constructor overloading. this is a keyword, that refers to present class object. i.e. this can refer present class instance variables, present class constructors and present class methods. this represents present class object that means it refers the instance variables, constructors, methods. Ex1: - //this refers to present class variables, methods and constructors. //Constructors class Sample { int i Sample() { this(); //calls para constructror) ( this() left & right simple braces will call present class default constructor) this.display(); } Sample(int i) { this.i = i; //refers to instance variable } void this.display(int i) ( (int i) local variable) { System.out.println(i = +i); ( i it is a local variable) } } class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an object to Sample class Sample s = new Sample(); //Here default constructor is called & executed. s.display();

Page 42 of 191

COREJAVA
} } (or) //Constructors class Sample { int i Sample() { this(); //calls para constructror) this.display(); } Sample() { this.i = i; //refers to instance variable } void this.display(int i) ( (int i) local variable) { System.out.println(i = +i); ( i it is a instance variable) } } class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an object to Sample class Sample s = new Sample(200); //Here parameter constructor is called & executed. s.display(); } } To get instance variable use this.i This always refers to present class object. Ex2: - //Where class One { int x; ( x is instance variable) Two t; ( Two is class and t is instance variable) One() { x = 10; t = new Two(); t.show(); } void show() { x 10 System.out.println(x = +x); o

Hash Code

} } class Two { void show()/Two()/show() { System.out.println(This is Two); } } class Demo {

t Class One object class Two object Object graph

Page 43 of 191

COREJAVA
public static void main(String args[ ]); { One o = new One(); o.show(); } } this() can call present class parameterized constructor. this() can call present class instance variable. this() can refer present class method.

Q) Whatis objectgraph?***** Ans:- The graph showing the relationship between different objects is called Object graph. We can establish a relationship between objects by using three methods they are reference variables/inner classes/inheritance. Methods:- A method consists of a set of statements to perform a task. A method will have two parts. 1. Method header (or) Method Prototype: - This part contains method name, parameters and method return type. returntype methodname(parameter1, parameter2, ) method parameters are local variables to receive the data from outside for the method. Ex: void sum(double d1, double d2) double sqrt(double x) long fact(int n) double power(double x, int n) 2. Methodbody: - It contains statements representing the logic to solve the problem. It starts with begin { and ends with }. In between these curlew braces we have to write statements. Ex: { statements; } Note: - A method can return some value only if return statement is used in the method body. Method can return only variable/objects/value. Ex: return 1; return x; return obj; return x+y; return x,y; It is not possible. Ex: //Understanding methods class Sample { double d1, d2; sample(double d1, double d2) //parameterized constructor //double d1, double d2 are local variables. { this.d1 = d1; this.d2 = d2; } void sum() { System.out.println(Sum = +(d1+d2)); } } class Demo1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Sample s = new Sample(10, 15.5);

s.sum(); }

} double d1, double d2 are local variables. d1, d2 are instance variables.

//Understanding methods class Sample { double d1, d2; sample(double d1, double d2) //parameterized constructor //double d1, double d2 are local variables. { this.d1 = d1; this.d2 = d2; } static void sum(double d1, double d2) { return d1+d2; // d1, d2 are local variable } } class Demo1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Sample s = new Sample(10, 15.5); double x = s.sum(); System.out.println(Result = +x); } } Java compiler will construct default constructor when there is not any constructor. Instancemethod:- It is a method that acts upon instance variables. To call instance methods we have to use objname.methodname(); Static method: - A static method is a method that does not act upon instance variables of a class. Static methods are declared with static keyword. A static method is called using objectname.methodname(); Ex: static double(double d1, double d2) { return d1+d2; } Sample s = new Sample(); double x = s.sum(10, 15.5); System.out.println(Result = +x); A static method is also called directly using classname.methodname(); double x = Sample.sum(10, 15.5); 1. A static method is a method it cannot act on instance variables. 2. A static method is called class.methodname(); 3. Static methods are loaded on the Method area of the Class loader sub system in the JVM architecture. 4. Static method cannot access instance variable but they can access static variables. 5. A static method should be declared as static. 6. A static method is a method that can be called and executed without creating an object. 7. Static methods cant be overridden. But it can be redefined in a subclass. 8. Static methods are overloaded.

Q) Whatis differencebetweenstatic variableand instancevariable?***** Ans:A static variable is a variable whose single copy in memory is shared by all the objects of class. Any modification of one object will affect other objects. Static variable is also known/called as Class Variable.
Page 45 of 191

COREJAVA
An instance variable will have a separate copy available in each object. Any modification of one object will not affect other objects. (or) StaticVariable 1. A static variable is a variable whose single copy in memory is shared by all the objects of class. 2. If any modification of one object will affect other objects. 3. Static variables are executed at compilation time. InstanceVariable 1. An instance variable will have a separate copy available in each object. 2. If any modification of one object will not affect other objects. 3. Instance variables are executed at runtime. 4. Instance means objects. Objects are dynamically created by JVM on the heap area of class loader sub system in the JVM architecture. Instance variables are loaded in the objects, so ultimately instance variables are loaded on the heap area of class loader sub system. 5. Only instance variables and methods can be accessed after super constructor runs.

4. Static variables are loaded on the method area of class loader sub system in the JVM architecture.

5. Only static variables and methods can be accessed of the call to super() or this().

Instance variables are created in objects. Objects are in the memory of heap. So instance variable are stored in heap. Static variables, Static blocks and static methods are stored on method area of JVM. Static variable must be declared with static keyword. Instance variable can be decalred any where in the class and no need of initializing it. It will takes default values. Typesof methodsin Java:1. Static methods. 2. Instance methods a) Accessor method b) Mutator methods. 3. Factory methods. A static method does not act on instance variables. block is a group of statements with () Ex: - //A Static block class Sample { static{ System.out.println(This is inside static); } public static void main(String args[ ]) { System.out.println(Inside main); } } Staticblocks:- Static blocks are group of statements written inside a block declared as static. Static blocks are executed before any method is executed. It means static blocks are executed at the time of compilation only. Static blocks are stored on the method area of Class loader sub system. Ex: //A Static block class Sample { static{ System.out.println(This is inside static block); System.exit(0); }

COREJAVA
} In general without main method we can not run the java program. 2. Instance method: - Instance means objects. An object contains instance variables. Instance methods these are methods, which act upon instance variables of a class. Instance variables are created in object in the heap memory. This means instance methods acts upon class objects. An instance method is called using objectname.methodname. Only instance variables and methods can acess after super constructor runs. An instance method can access instance variables. Instance methods can be overloaded or overridden. a) Accessormethod:- These methods access or read instance variables. b) Mutator method: - These methods not only read the instance variables but also modify them. Mutator methods modify the contents of the objects. Ex: //Accessor and mutator methods class Person { String name; int age; char sex; Person(String name, int age, char sex); { this.name = name; this.age = age; this.sex = sex; void display ()//this is an accessor method { System.out.println(Name = +name); System.out.println(Age = +age); System.out.println(Sex = +sex); } } class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Person p1 = new Person(Srinivas, 20, M); p1.display(); } } In a class: Static blocks These are executed initially Static variables Instance Variables Then these are executed secondly Instance method Constructor ---- Constructor will be executed finally When instance variable & local variable names are same then only we have to use this. A class is also called user defined data type. Class variables means static variables. Ex: //Accessor and mutator methods class Person { String name; int age; char sex; Person(String name, int age, char sex); { name = n; age = a; sex = s;
Page 47 of 191

COREJAVA
void display ()//this is an accessor method { System.out.println(Name = +n); System.out.println(Age = +a); System.out.println(Sex = +s); } Person modify (Person obj) //Mutator method { obj.name = Laxmi; --obj.age; obj.sex = F; return obj; ( obj is Person class object) }

} class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Person p1 = new Person(Srinivas, 20, M); p1.display(); Person p2 = p1.modify(p1); (or) Person p2 = p1.modify(new Person(Vankat, 30, M)); p2.display(); p1.display(); (Now it will displays Laxmis details) } }

Referenced variables are passed to methods by value. Objects are passed to the methods byvalue. Any thing passed to method by value. There is no concept pass byvalue & pass byreference. Pass by reference means passed the address of variable to methods, then pointers receives the address of variable then we can do modification. JVM/JVM compiler is developed in C-Language. Pointers are used internally by JVM, but pointers are not used by the programmers. The primitive java types (boolean, byte, char, short, int, long, float and double) and the keyword void are also represented as class objects. methods also receives arrays as parameters and returns array as result. Ex: /*Finding sum of given two matrices using methods to accept and return arrays*/ import java.io.*; class Arr
Page 48 of 191

COREJAVA
{ int arr[ ][ ]; int r, c; Arr(int r, int c) { this.r = r; this.c = c; arr = new int[r][c]; } //To accept elements of an array and return int [ ] [ ]getArray() throws IOException { BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); for(int i = 0; i<r; i++) for(int j = 0; j<c; j++) { System.out.print(Enter element: ); arr[ i ][ j ] = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); } } //method to display the array after receiving it void putArray(int res[ ] [ ]) { for(int i = 0; i<r; i++) { for(int j = 0; j<c; j++) { System.out.print(res[ i ][ j ] + \t); } System.out.println(); } } //To accept two arrays and find sum array and return it { int[ ][ ] findSum(int a[ ][ ], int b[ ]) { int temp[ ] [ ] = new int [ r ][ c ]; for(int i = 0; i<r; i++) for(int j = 0; j<c; j++) temp[ i ][ j ] = a[ i ][ j ] + b[ i ][ j ]; return temp; } } class ArraySum { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //Vars int x[ ][ ], y[ ][ ], z[ ][ ]; Arr obj1 = new Arr(3,3); Arr obj2 = new Arr(3,3); System.out.println(Enter elements of first array: ); x = obj1.getArray(); obj1.putArray(x); System.out.println(Enter elements of second array: ); y = obj2.getArray(); obj2.putArray(y);
Page 49 of 191

COREJAVA
z = obj1.findSum(x,y); System.out.println(The sum array: ); Obj1.putArray[z]; } } Factory methods: - A factory method is a method that returns object of the class to which it belongs. All factory methods are static methods. Ex: NumberFormat obj = NumberFormat.getNumberInstance(); NumberFormat obj1= NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(); NumberFormat obj1= NumberFormat.getPercentInstance(); getNumberInstance(),getCurrencyInstance(),getPercentInstance() are factory methods. In some classes we cannot use new operator to create an object. In that situation this factory methods are used. Objectsare constructed: We cannot create a new object without invoking a constructor. Each superclass in an objects inheritance tree will have a constructor called. Q) In howmanyyoucan createan objectusingnewoperator?***** Ans:- In 4 ways we can create an object: 1) Using new operator: Ex: - Employee obj = new Employee(); 2) Using factory method Ex: - NumberFormat obj = NumberFormat.getNumberInstance(); 3) Using newInstance() method: Ex: - Class c = Class.forName(Employee); Employee obj = c.newInstance(); 4) Using Cloning: - Cloning means creating another copy same as like original copy. Ex: - Employee e2 = e1.clone(); Whatis the differencebetweenusingnewoperatorandclass.forName()to createan object. Usingnewoperator:1. Classes are statically loaded with Javas new operator. Ex: class MyClass { public static void main(String args[]){ Car c = newCar(); } } 2. A NoClassDefFoundException is thrown if a class is referenced with Javas new operator (i.e. static loading) but the runtime system cannot find the referenced class. UsingClass.forName():1. Dynamic loading is a technique for programmatically invoking the functions of a class loader at run time. Let us look at how to load classes dynamically. Class.forName (String className); //static method which returns a Class. The above static method returns the class object associated with the class name. The string className can be supplied dynamically at run time. Unlike the static loading, the dynamic loading will decide whether to load the class Car or the class Jeep at runtime based on a properties file and/or other runtime conditions. Once the class is dynamically loaded the following method returns an instance of the loaded class. Its just like creating a class object with no arguments. class.newInstance (); //A non-static method, which creates an instance of a class (i.e. creates an object). Jeep myJeep = null; //myClassName should be read from a properties file or Constants interface. //stay away from hard coding values in your program. String myClassName = "au.com.Jeep"; Class vehicleClass = Class.forName(myClassName); myJeep = (Jeep) vehicleClass.newInstance (); myJeep.setFuelCapacity(50);

COREJAVA
2. A ClassNotFoundException is thrown when an application tries to load in a class through its string name using the following methods but no definition for the class with the specified name could be found: The forName(..) method in class - Class. The findSystemClass(..) method in class - ClassLoader. The loadClass(..) method in class - ClassLoader. When we call a newInstance() method, it always calls for the default constructor. So in such a case we must have a default consturctor for a class. Otherwise we get an error. Ex: //Area of a circle import java.text.*; class Circle { public static void main(String args[ ]) { final double PI = 3.14159; // final double PI = (double)22/7; double r = 15.5; double area = PI * r * r ; System.out.println(Area = +area); } } (or) //Area of a circle import java.text.*; class Circle { public static void main(String args[ ]) { final double PI = 3.14159; // final double PI = (double)22/7; double r = 15.5; double area = PI * r * r ; System.out.println(Area = +area); //Format the are value NumberFormat obj = NumberFormat.getNumberInstance(); obj.setMinimumIntegerDigit(6); obj.setMaximumIntegerDigit(2); String s = obj.format(area); String.out.println(Formatted area = +s); } } 15. Create a class with student details and create 2 objects to it and display the details using methods?

Inner Class:- A class within another class is called inner class. Whereshouldwe use inner classes: Code without inner classes is more maintainable and readable. When you access private data members of the outer class, the JDK compiler creates package-access member functions in the outer class for the inner class to access the private members. This leaves a security hole. In general we should avoid using inner classes. Use inner class only when an inner class is only relevant in the context of the outer class and/or inner class can be made private so that only outer class can access it. Inner classes are used primarily to implement helper classes like Iterators, Comparators etc which are used in the context of an outer class. You can use public access specifier before a class. You cannot use private access specifier before a class. Only inner classes can be declared as the private. Directly you cannot create objects to the inner class. We can create objects to the outer classes.

COREJAVA
Inner class objects can be created only its outer class. Outer class is acting as a firewall. Ex: //Inner class class BankAcct Outer Class { Inner class private double bal; BankAcct(double b) { bal = b; } void start(double r) { One Person class //Create an object to inner class Interest in = new Interest(r); in . calculateInterest(); } private class Interset { private double rate; Interest(double r) { rate = r; } valid calculateInterset() { double interest = bal * rate/100; System.out.println(Interest = +interest); bal += interest; // bal = bal + interest; System.out.println(Balance = +bal); } } } class InnerDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { BankAcct obj = new BankAcct(10000); Obj.start(4.5); //Rate of interest = 4.5 } } (or) //Inner class class BankAcct { private double bal; BankAcct(double b) { bal = b; } void start(double r) { //Create an object to inner class Interest in = new Interest(r); in . calculateInterest(); } private class Interset { private double rate; Interest(double r)

{ rate = r; } valid calculateInterset() { double interest = BankAcct.this.bal*this.bal/100; System.out.println(Interest = +interest); BankAcct.this.bal += interest; // bal = bal + interest; System.out.println(Balance = + BankAcct.this.bal); } } } class InnerDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { BankAcct obj = new BankAcct(10000); obj.start(4.5); //Rate of interest = 4.5 } } Summaryof Inner Class:1. An inner class is a class within another class 2. Inner class is a safety mechanism. 3. Inner class is hidden from other classes in its outer BankAcct class. 4. An object to inner class can be created only in bal outer class. 5. An object to inner class cannot be created in other classes. 6. Inner class features are accessible through outer class only. 7. Outer class object and inner class objects are created separately in memory. 8. Outer class members are available to inner class. 9. Inner class object contains an invisible field this$0 that stores outer class reference. 10. Only inner classes can be declared as private. 11. Outer class members can be referred as: outerclass.this.member; 12. Inner class & outer class are separated by $ symbol. Typesof Inner Classes: 1. Annonymous Classes 2. Static Inner Classes 3. Non-Static Inner Classes 4. Method- local Inner Classes Anonymousclass: - Anonymous classes combine the process of definition and instantiation into a single step. These are defined at a location where they are instantiated. Anonymous classes can be defined and instantiated in contexts, where a reference can be used i.e. as expression that executes to a reference denoting an object. Anonymous classes are typically used for creating objects on the fly contexts such as return value of a method, as an argument in a method call, in initialization of variables. Anonymous class cannot have constructors. Instance initializer can be used to achieve the same effect as a constructor. Ex: interface IDrawable{ void draw(); } class Shape implements IDrawable{ void draw(){ }

COREJAVA
} class Pointer{ public Shape createShape(){ return new shape(){ public void draw(){ System.out.println( ); } } } } To define and instantiate an anonymous class that extends an existing class can be specified by new SuperClassName(optional arguments){class declaration} A reference to an anonymous class cannot be declared the functionality of the class is only available through super class reference implementing an interface. Anonymous class provides a single interface implementation and no arguments are passed. The anonymous class implicitly extends the object class. Note: - No implementation clause is used in the constructor. Anonymousclass 1. Cannot declare a reference and constructor. 2. Declaration and instantiation combined in the same process. 3. No arguments are passed. 4. It can implement a single interface. 5. We cannot use either extends or implement keywords with anonymous classes. protected void finalize() throws Throwable{ } Ex. 1: //Exampleof AnonymousClass class Hai { void show() { System.out.println(I am show); } } class Hello { Hai obj = new Hai() //Dont put semicolon in above because here we are creating anonymous class. { //Anonymous class starts here without name void show() { System.out.println(I am show); } void disp() { System.out.println(I am display); } }; //We writing semicolon here at the end of annonymous class void m1() { obj.show(); //obj.disp(); It is not a method of Hai class } } //end of Hello class class Test { public static void main(String args[ ]) {

Inner classExercise: 16. Create a student class with student details like, rno, name. In this class create an inner class DOB that contains date of birth of student (dd, mm, yy). Now create two objects and store two students details. Display the different number of days in their dates of birth? Ex: //Teacher class class Teacher { int id; String bal; String address; float sal; void setId(int id) //mutator() method { this.id = id; } int getId() //accessor() method { return id; } void setName(String name) { this.name = name; Project Lead }

{ return marks; } Inheritance:- Producing new classes from an existing class is called as inheritance. The newly produced class is called sub class. The original class is called Super class. Extends is the keyword use in inheritance. Syntax:class Subclass extends Super class Reusability is the main advantage of inheritance. Because of reusability developing of software/program becomes easy. Sub class contains a copy of super class object. In inheritance, we create object to only sub class. Because in Sub class it contains all the methods & objects of class are available to sub class. Case1: //If Super class has a default constructor class One { One() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two { Two() { System.out.println(Two); } } class Const { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Two t = new Two(); } } When you create an object to sub class to super class constructor is also available to sub class. Super class default constructor is also available to sub class. Super class parameterized constructor is not available to sub class. Case2: //If Super class has parameterized constructor class One { int i; One(int i) { this.i = i; } void show() { System.out.println(Super class method = +i); } } class Two extends One { int i; Two(int x, int y) {
Page 58 of 191

COREJAVA
super(x); i = y; //super() means calling super class default constructor

} void show() { System.out.println(Sub class method = +i); System.out.println(super.i); super.show(); } } class Const { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Two t = new Two(100,200); t.show(); } } Super keyword refers to super class from sub class. Using super key word we can refers to super class instance variables constructors, methods also. super.show() in sub class. It shows super class method. We have to initialize first super class constructor. super(x); Polymorphism:- Polymorphism came from two Greek words. Poly means many and morphs means forms. If something exists in many forms, it is called Polymorphism. If the same method performs many tasks it is called Polymorphism. There are two types of Polymorphisms. 1. Static Polymorphism 2. Dynamic Polymorphism DynamicPolymorphism:- This is the Polymorphism exhibited at runtime. Dynamic means runtime. This is also known as runtime polymorphism (or) late binding. Method consists two parts 1. Method header It doesnt change 2. Method body But body will change/different In Dynamic Polymorphism a method called is linked with method code at runtime. So it is also called late binding. Ex: //Method Overloading class Sample { void add(int a, int b) { System.out.println(Sum of two = +(a+b)); } void add(int a, int b, int c) { int d = a+b+c; System.out.println(Sum of three = +d); Class Poly { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Sample s = new Sample(); s.add(10,20); s.add(10,20,30); } } Ex: class Shape{

void m2(){ System.out.println("It is box"); } } public class TestSuper { public static void main(String[] args) { Shape s=new Shape(); System.out.println(s.i); s.m1(); //s.m2(); It is invalid //System.out.println(s.p); It is invalid Box b=new Box(); System.out.println(b.p); System.out.println(b.i); b.m1(); b.m2(); Shape s1=new Box(); System.out.println(s1.i); s1.m1(); //s1.m2(); It is invalid //System.out.println(s1.p); It is invalid Box b1=(Box)s1; System.out.println(b1.i); System.out.println(b1.p); b1.m1(); b1.m2(); } } Output:0 It is shape 0 0 It is shape It is box 0 It is shape 0 0 It is shape It is box Method Signature: - A method signature represents method name and its parameter. This part is called method signature. It is useful to uniquely identify method from signature. JVM identifies a method separately when any one of the following differences is found. 1. There may be different number of parameters in the both methods. Ex: void add(int a, int b) void add(int a, int b, int c) 2. There is a difference in the data types of parameters (or) number of parameters Ex: void add(float a, int b) void add(double a, double b) 3. There is a difference in the sequence of parameters (or) order of parameters Ex: int swap(char a, int b) int add(int a, char b) 4. There must be difference in return type Ex: int add(int a, int b) int add(int a, int b) Any one of the above differences will make method signature to be different, then JVM can recognized that method differently.

COREJAVA
Overloading method: - Writing two or more methods with the same name but with different method signatures is called method over loading. Method overloading is an example for Dynamic Polymorphism. If you write same methods and same parameters in one class it is called as duplicate method, but compiler doesnt execute this type of method. There must be some difference in the method in one class. Overlaoded methods can change return type. double calculate Methods can be overridden and overloaded. (double x) Constructors are overloaded but not overridden. t Polymorphism is not applied to overloading. Reference type determines which overloaded double calculate method will be used at compile time. (double x) Methods from a superclass can be overloaded in a subclass. Overloading means reusing the same method name, but with different arguments. Methods can be overloaded in the same class or in a subclass. Overloadedmethods: Must have different argument lists. May have different return types, as long as the argument lists are also different. May have different access modifiers. May throw different exceptions. Ex: //Example for Overriding class One { double calculate(double x) { return x * x; } } class Two extends One { double calculate(double x) { return Math.sqrt(x); } } class Poly { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Two t = new Two(); double res = t.calculate(16); System.out.println(Result = +res); } } O/P: - 4 Ex: //Method Overriding class One { double calculate(double x) { return x * x; } } class Two extends One { double calculate(double x) {

The sub class method overrides the super class method. This means only sub class method is executed. In method overriding JVM executes a method depending upon the type of the reference used to call the method. Method overriding is an example for Dynamic Polymorphism. Writing body for method is called implementation. The argument list must exactly match that of the overridden method. The return type must exactly match that of the overridden method. The access level must not be more restrictive than that of the overridden method. If a method cant be inherited we cannot override it. The overriding method must not throw new broader checked exceptions than those declared by the overridden method. Polymorphism applies to overriding, not to overloading. Object type determines which overridden method is used at runtime. The key benefit of overriding is the ability to define behavior that's specific to a particular subclass type. When a method is declared certain exceptions and you want to override that method you can cut of all your runtime exceptions while overriding and any general level exceptions like the parent exceptions can be replaced with its subclass exceptions list, this is the rule for overriding a method. (or) you can specify the same set of the exceptions or you can leave out of all of the exceptions. When we are overriding the methods superclass methods must throws superclass exception and in subclass method should throws subclass exception. If superclass method is throws superclass exception and it should be hanlded by try & catch block. If superclass method is throws superclass exception and the subclass method can be without throwing an exception (or) subclass method can throws runtime exceptions. Only overrided methods are accessible by Superclass from the Subclass. Q) Whatis the functionaldifferencebetweenmethodoverloadingandmethodoverriding?***** Ans:A programmer uses method overloading when he wants to extend an already available feature. A method overloading is code refinement. Overlaoding lets you define the same operation in different ways for different data.

A programmer uses method overriding when he wants to provide different implementation for the same feature. Method overriding is code replacement. A method overriding depends on return type of a method. Overriding lets you define the same operation in different ways for different object types. (or) Whatare the functionaldifferencebetweenmethodoverloadingand methodoverriding:MethodOverloading 1. A programmer uses method overloading when he wants to extend an already available feature. 2. A method overloading is code refinement. 3. A method overloading doesnt depends on return type of a method and exception. 4. Overlaoding lets you define the same operation in different ways for different data. MethodOverriding 1. A programmer uses method overriding when he wants to provide different implementation for the same feature. 2. Method overriding is code replacement. 3. A method overriding depends on return type of a method and exception. 4. Overriding lets you define the same operation in different ways for different object types.

In C++ method over loading is example for Static Polymorphism and method over riding is an example for Dynamic Polymorphism. Static Polymorphism: - This is the Polymorphism exhibited at compile time. So, this is also called Compile time Polymorphism . Here the compiler knows which method is called and the method call is linked with method code at compile time. This is also called Early binding. Ex: - Achieving Polymorphism using private methods or static methods or final methods is Static Polymorphism. final methods:- final methods are the methods in final class. A class declared as final is called final class. Ex: final class A Note: 1. It is also use for declare the values Ex: final class A class B extends A (Invalid) 2. final keyword before a class name prevents the inheritance and overriding. Casting:- Converting one data type into another (data) type is called casting. Data type: - It represents the type of data stored into a variable is called Data type. There are two types of data types. 1. Primitive data types: - These data types represent a single value methods are not available to directly handle Primitive data types. Ex: - char, byte, int, long, float, double, boolean. Primitive data types will store only single value. 2. Advanced data types (or) Referenced data types: - These data types represent groups of values. Methods are available to handle them. Ex: - Any array, String any class. Q) Whatis the differencebetweenprimitivedatatypesand referencetypes?***** Ans:Primitive data types represent single value methods are not available to directly handle Primitive data types. Primitive data types will store only single value. Referenced data types represent groups of values. Methods are available to handle them. Note: 1. Using casting we can covert a primitive data type into another primitive data type. 2. Using casting we can convert a referenced data type into another referenced data type. 3. We cannot use casting to covert a primitive type into a referenced type and vice versa. For this purpose wrapper classes are available. CastingPrimitivedata type: 1. Widening:- Converting a lower data type into a higher type is called widening. Lower data type means occupies lower memory and contains less numbers of data and higher data type means occupies higher memory and consists higher numbers of data.
Page 65 of 191

COREJAVA
char, byte, short, int, long, float, double Lower --------------------------------------------------- higher Ex: char ch = B; int n = (int) ch; //Here (int) is cast operator. Note: - We can convert char into int type only. Ex: float f = (float)n; Here it is temporary conversion of n only. 2. Narrowing: - Converting a higher data type a lower data type is called narrowing. In narrowing we may loose some digits or precessions. Ex: int n = 65; char ch = (char)n; Ex: double d = 12.123; int n = (int)d; Casting referenceddata types: - If the classes dont have any relationship then we cannot convert from one class to another class. There must be some relationship between classes to casting. We can cast one class type into another class type only if there is a relation between those classes by the way of inheritance. Ex: //Casting referenced data types. class One { void show1() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two extends One { void show2() //overriding void show1() { System.out.println(Two); } } class Cast { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Super class reference to refer super class object One o; o = new One(); o.show1(); o.show2(); } } Reference variable always use to refer to an object One o. Here o is reference variable. The rulesfor overridinga methodare as follows: The argument list must exactly match that of the overridden method. If they don't match, you can end up with an overloaded method you didn't intend. The return type must be the same as, or a subtype of, the return type declared in the original overridden method in the superclass. The access level can't be more restrictive than the overridden method's. The access level can be less restrictive than that of the overridden method. Instance methods can be overridden only if they are inherited by the subclass. A subclass within the same package as the instance's superclass can override any superclass method that is not marked private or final. A subclass in a different package can override only those nonfinal methods marked public or protected (since protected methods are inherited by the subclass). The overriding method can throw any unchecked (runtime) exception, regardless of whether the overridden method declares the exception.
Page 66 of 191

COREJAVA
The overriding method must not throw checked exceptions that are new or broader than those declared by the overridden method. For example, a method that declares a FileNotFoundException cannot be overridden by a method that declares a SQLException, Exception, or any other non-runtime exception unless it's a subclass of FileNotFoundException. The overriding method can throw narrower or fewer exceptions. Just because an overridden method "takes risks" doesn't mean that the overriding subclass' exception takes the same risks. Bottom line: an overriding method doesn't have to declare any exceptions that it will never throw, regardless of what the overridden method declares. You cannot override a method marked final. You cannot override a method marked static. We'll look at an example in a few pages when we discuss static methods in more detail. If a method can't be inherited, you cannot override it. Remember that overriding implies that you're reimplementing a method you inherited! Note: - We can use Superclass reference to refer to superclass object. Here we can refers to all superclass members. Subclass reference to refer to subclass object. 2nd Combination:Ex: //Casting referenced data types. class One { void show1() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two extends One { void show2() { System.out.println(Two); } } class Cast { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Subclass reference to refer superclass object Two t; t = new Two(); t.show2(); t.show1(); } } Here subclass can access to superclass (inheritance). When we create an object to the subclass then it contains a copy of superclass. Inheritance we create an object to subclass not to superclass. 3rd Combination:Ex: //Casting referenced data types. class One { void show1() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two extends One { void show2()
Page 67 of 191

COREJAVA
{ System.out.println(Two); } } class Cast { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Super class reference to refer to sub class object One o; o = new One(); o.show1(); o.show2(); -- It is not required for overriding. } }

Ex: Citrous

Q) Whatis generalization?***** Ans:In inheritance hierarchy moving up from sub class to super class is called generalization or upcasting or widening.

Q) Whatis specialization?***** Ans:- Coming down from super class to sub class is called specialization or downcasting or narrowing. In widening, the super class members/methods are accessible. In widening sub class members are not available, unless they over ride super class method. Abstract means a method without a body. abstract class One { abstract void show(); } Abstractclass:- It contains abstract methods then that class is called as abstract class. Ex: //Casting referenced data types. class One { void show1() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two extends One { void show2() { System.out.println(Two); } } class Cast { public static void main(String args[ ])
Page 68 of 191

COREJAVA
{ One o; o = (One)new Two(); Two t = Two(o); t.show1(); t.show2(); } } Here we created an object to sub class. In narrowing we can refer to super class methods as well as sub class methods also. 4th Combination:Ex: //Casting referenced data types. class One { void show1() { System.out.println(One); } } class Two extends One { void show2() { System.out.println(Two); } } class Cast { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Two t; t = (Two)new One(); Two t = Two(o); t.show2(); } } Note: - We can not use sub class reference to refer to super class object. Q) Whatis wideningand narrowing?***** Ans:- See above all. A method will have two parts 1. Methodheader/prototype:void calculate(double sal) 2. Methodbody:- It represents how to implement the body features. Note: - When the same method has different implementations (different bodies) the programmer cannot write any body for the method in the super class. Abstractmethod:- Abstract method is a method without a body. A class with abstract methods is called abstract class both the abstract method and abstract class must be declared with abstract. In case where you want to use implementation inheritance then it is usually provided by an abstract base class. Abstract classes are excellent candidates inside of application frameworks. Abstract classes let you define some default behaviour and force subclasses to provide any specific behaviour. Ex: // abstract class Car { //every car will have a regno int regno;
Page 69 of 191

COREJAVA
//to store a regno value Car(int r) { regno = r; } /*every car will have a fuel tank. The mechanism to fill the tank is same for all cars*/ void filltank() { System.out.println(Take the key and fill the tank); } /*every car will have steering. But different cars will have different steering mechanism*/ abstract void steering(int direction); /*every car will have brakes. But different cars will have different breaking mechanism*/ abstract void braking(int force); } Save it and compile it. //This is a concrete sub class of car class class Maruti extends Car { Maruti(int regno) { super(regno); } void steering(int direction) { System.out.println(Maruti uses manual steering); System.out.println(Please drive the car); } void braking(int force) { System.out.println(Maruti uses hydraulic brakes); System.out.println(Apply brakes to stop the car); } Save it & compile it. //This is a concrete sub class of car class class Santro extends Car { Santro(int regno) { super(regno); } void steering(int direction) { System.out.println(Santro uses power steering); System.out.println(Start the car); } void braking(int force) { System.out.println(Santro uses gas brakes); System.out.println(Apply brakes to stop the car); } } Save it & compile it. //Let us use a car class UseCar { public static void main(String args[ ]) {
Page 70 of 191

COREJAVA
//take new Maruti an Santro cars Maruti m = new Maruti(6666); Santro s = new Santro(1111); //Create a reference to Car class Car ref; // ref reference variable to Car class //Use Maruti ref = m; (or) ref = s; //Now use it ref.filTank(); ref.steering(2); ref.braking(450); }

} Save this above code as UseCar.java then compile and run it. AbstractClass:1. An abstract class is a class with 0 or more abstract methods. 2. An abstract class can have variables/vars, complete methods and abstract methods. 3. We cannot create an object to abstract class. 4. But we can create a reference variable to abstract class. 5. All the abstract methods of the abstract class should be implemented (body) in its sub class. 6. If abstract method is not implemented then that sub class should be declared abstract. 7. The reference of abstract super class can be used to refer to objects its sub class. 8. The reference of abstract super class cannot refer to the individual methods of the sub class. 9. An abstract class cannot be both abstract and final. abstract final class A (invalid). 10. An abstract class must be subclassed. 11. An abstract class will have constructors, and those constructors are always called when a concrete sub class is intantiated. Interface:- An Interface defines a protocol of behavior that can Abstract be implemented by any class anywhere in the class ------- methods hierarchy. An interface defines a set of methods but doesnt ------- 4 implement them. An interface is a named collection of method definitions (without implementations). An interface ------can also declare constants. An interface is a specification of method proto types. Prototypes will be in the interface. All the methods of the interface are abstract. For polymorphic interface inheritance, where the 4 4 client wants to only deal with a type and does not care about the actual implementation use interfaces. If you need to change your design frequently, you should prefer using Implementation class interface to abstract. Coding to an interface reduces coupling and interface inheritance can achieve code reuse with the help of object composition. Another justification for using interfaces is that they solve the diamond problem of traditional multiple inheritance as shown in the figure. Java does not support multiple inheritances. Java only supports multiple interface inheritance. Interface will solve all the ambiguities caused by this diamond problem. All the methods are incomplete only. We can create reference to the interface. We cant create an object to interface. In interface we have the abstract methods. Implementation class is a class, where all the methods in a class. We can provide several classes for the same interface. In interface here all the abstract methods. So must implement all methods in a class (this can also contain or within body to that methods) this class is called implemented class. We can provide n number of implement to interface.

Driver is an implementation class, where the methods are implemented. Interface is more powerful than class. API document is a .html file, that contains description of all the features of a software or a product or a technology. By default all the methods of interface are public & abstract. Ex: //Interface example interface MyInter { void connect(); //public abstract } class OracleDB implements MyInter { public void connect() { System.out.println(Connecting to Oracle database); } } class SybaseDB implements MyInter { public void connect() c OracleDB { System.out.println(Connecting to Sybase database); } connect() } mi method class MysqlDB implements MyInter { c references that object public void connect() { System.out.println(Connecting to Mysql database); } } c OracleDB class Database { public static void main(String args[ ]) connect() throws Exception

An interface is a specification of method prototypes. 2. An interface contains o or more abstract methods. 3. All the methods of the interface are public and abstract by default. 4. An interface may have variables, which are public static and final by default. In another words, interfaces can declare only constants, not instance variables. 5. We cannot create an object to an interface. 6. But we can create a reference of interface type. 7. All the abstract methods of the interface should be implemented in its implementation class. 8. Interface reference can be used to refer to the objects of implementation classes. 9. If any method is not implemented in an implementation class, it should be declared as abstract. 10. Once an interface is written, any third party vendor can implement it. 11. An interface cannot implement another interface. 12. An interface can extend another interface. 13. We can write a class inside an interface. 14. A class can implement multiple interfaces. 15. All the methods are incomplete only. 16. Interface methods must not be static. Because interface methods are abstract, they cannot be marked final, strictfp, or native. 17. Interface dos not have constructors. Interfaces are not part of an objects inheritance tree. Q) Whatis the functionaldifferencebetweenan abstractclassandan interface?***** Ans:- A programmer uses abstract class when some common features are shared by all the objects. A programmer writes an interface, when all features are implemented differently for different objects. (or) AbstractClass 1. An abstract class is a class with 0 or more abstract methods. Interface 1. An Interface defines a protocol of behavior that can be implemented by any class anywhere in the class hierarchy. An interface defines a set of methods but doesnt implement them. 2.

Typesof inheritance:1. Singleinheritance:- Producing sub classes from a single super class is called single inheritance.

A B B
class B extends A

A C

class B extends A class c extends A

2. Multipleinheritance:- Producing sub classes from multiple super classes is called multiple inheritance.

B

class A class B

class B

class C extends A, B in valid in Java class D extends A, B in valid in Java

class C extends A, B in valid in Java Multiple inheritance does not support in java.

Q) Whymultipleinheritanceis not availablein java?***** Ans:Multiple inheritance leads to confusion for programmer. This is against to the aim of java to be a simple programming language. Java = C++ - Complexity

COREJAVA
There is no operator loading in java. There is no destructor. Destructor work is done by garbage collector. Q) Howcanyoucall garbagecollector?***** Ans:By calling System.gc();. It will runs the garbage collector. Runtime and system classes of java.lang package System.gc(); is available.

Q) Canyou createobjectto the systemclass?***** Ans:- No, It is not possible. System class cannot be initiated because it contains static methods. finalize() method belongs to class of java.lang package. finalized method destroy the memory. If you call the finalize() method it may crash the program, so it is better to avoid calling finalize() method. finalize() method helps in garbage collection. A method that is invoked before an object is discarded by the garbage collector, allowing it to clean up its state. Should not be used to release nonmemory resources like file handles, sockets, database connections etc because Java has only a finite number of these resources and you do not know when the garbage collection is going to kick in to release these non-memory resources through the finalize() method. Garbage collector will works automatically; we should not required to call it. 3. Multiple inheritance can be achieved by programmers by using interfaces. class Z extends A, B (Invalid) class Z implements A, B (Valid) It is indirect way achieving multiple inheritance. (Refer the point of interfaces summary) A class can implement more than one interfaces. 4. Multiple inheritance can be achieved by repeated use of single inheritance.

From figure (3) above the line is multiple inheritance and below the line is single inheritance. So it is the combinations of single & multiple inheritances. Ex: //Multiple Interface example interface Father { int PROP1 = 500000; //public static final, final means fixed values float HT1 = 6.2f; } interface Mother { int PROP1 = 800000; float HT1 = 5.0f; } class Child implements Father, Mother { void property() { System.out.println(Childs Property = +(PROP1 + PROP2)); } class Multi { public static void main(String args[ ]) {

Packages:- A package represents a sub directory that contains a group of classes and interfaces. import java.awt.*; From the above statement * represents classes and interfaces of that package only but not available in packages. import java.awt.event.*; From the above statement event is package which does not available to import java.awt.*;, so if you want to use classes and interfaces of event package we must use import java.awt.event.*; Advantages:1. Packages hide classes and interfaces in a directory, accidental deletion is not possible. 2. The classes and interfaces of one package are isolated from the classes and interfaces of another package. Ex: java.util.Date dd mm hh mi.ss (1sec = 1000 milli seconds) java.sql.Date dd mm hh mi.ss 3. Packages provide reusability. Java is objective oriented language because it obeys all the object oriented methods. Java increases the productivity by using reusability. Packaging a Web Application: - The standard packaging format for a web application is a web archive file (WAR). A WAR file is simply a JAR file with extension .war as opposed to .jar. You can create a WAR file by using jar, javas archiving tool. C:\BTCE\>jar cvf anand.war C:\BTCE\>jar xvf anand.war 4. Packages can be extended a new packages can be created. Disadvantageof Java: Disadvantage of java is, java programs execution is slower than C/C++ programs, because of .exe file will be created after compiling the C or C++ program. Where as in java .class will be created first after that this .class will converted into machine language by JVM after that processor execute this machine language.

Java does not support pointers. Pointers are inherently insecure and troublesome. Since pointers do not exist in Java. Java does not support operator overloading. (iii) Java does not perform any automatic type conversions that result in a loss of precision. All the code in a Java program is encapsulated within one or more classes. Therefore, Java does not have global variables or global functions. Java does not support multiple inheritance. Java does not support destructors, but rather, add the finalize() function. Java does not have the delete operator. The << and >> are not overloaded for I/O operations Ex: //Creating our own package: pack package pack; public class Adition { double d1, 2; public Addition(double d1, double d2) { this.d1 = d1; this.d2 = d2; } void sum() { System.out.println(Sum = +(d1+d2)); } } Save it as Adition.java C:\rnr>javac d . Addition.java In the above -d means to create a directory or a package and . means current directory. In the above code if you dont declare public you can not able to create object for addition for out side package to available. After compiling the above code now it will creates pack sub directory to the rnr and Addition.class file will stored in pack sub directory and Addition.java file will stored in the rnr root directory. //Using the package after creating: pack class Use { public static void main(String args[ ]) { pack.Adition obj = new pack.Adition(); obj = sum(); } } BufferReader is available from JK 1.1. It is not available in JDK 1.0. From API document we will understand now many values to pass in parameterized constructor and sum() method does not return anything. pack.Adition obj = new pack.Addition(10, 15.6); In the above statement pack contains .class file of (previous program) Addition.class. So we have to keep .pack infront of Addition. Use.java and Use.class are available in rnr directory. //Adding another class to package: pack public class Subtraction { public static void sub(double a, double b) { return(a b); } } Save it as Subtraction.java Static method means this method does not acts upon instance variable.

COREJAVA
C:\rnr>javac d . Subtraction.java //Using the package after creating: pack class Use { public static void main(String args[ ]) { pack.Adition obj = new pack.Adition(10, 15.5); obj = sum(); double x = pack.Subtraction sub(10, 15.5); System.out.println(Result = +x); } } To avoid pack.Addition and pack.Substraction in creating objects we have to import pack.Addition as below. //Using the package after creating: pack import pack.Addition; import pack.Substraction; class Use (or) //Using the package after creating: pack import pack.*; import pack.*; class Use badclassfile: .\Addition.java 1. Java compiler searches for a package in .jar format in C:\j2sdk1.4.1_01\jre\lib\ext 2. Java compiler takes the current directory as package and searches for .class files in the current directory. 3. Java compiler searches for the package in the current directory and sub directories (after cutting those Addition.java and Subtraction.java files and paste in another new folder (pool to available others). 4. Java compiler searches for the package in the current class path. Class path is a system variable (it is provide by operating system) that stores active directory path. C:\rnr>echo %classppath% %classpath% Howto set CLASSPATH:C:\rnr>set CLASSPATH = d:\;.%CLASSPATH% In the above CLASSPATH keep old class path without disturbing. Ex: //An interface in a package: pack package pack; public interface MyInter public class Adition { void showDate();//public abstract //In the above showData() will be default public abstract C:\rnr>javac d . MyInter.java //this is implementation class for MyInter package pack; import pack.MyInter; import java.util.Date; public class MyDateImpl implements MyInter { public void showDate() { Date d = new Date(); System.out.println(d); } } C:\rnr>javac d . MyDateImpl.java (GMT means Green witch mean time) (1) //Using the interface
Page 78 of 191

COREJAVA
import pack.MyDateImpl; class Use { public static void main(String args[ ]) { MyDateImpl mi = new MyDateImpl(); mi.showDate(); } } (2) //Using the interface import pack.MyDateImpl; class Use extends MyDateImpl { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Use u = new Use(); u.showDate(); } } From the above 2nd is efficient. In (1) we are calling only MyDateImpl methods but in (2) we are calling MyDateImpl methods on well as class use methods. Ex: //An interface in a package: pack package pack; public class Sample { public void display() { System.out.println(Hello Students); } } C:\rnr>javac d . Sample.java //Using the sub package import inet.solv.Sample; class Use { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Sample s = new Sample(); s.display(); } } Note: - If the package in other sub directory (not in current) you will set class path. Set classpath = C:\rnr\inner; . ; %classpath%

Access specifier is a keyword that represents how to access or retrieve the members of class. There are four access specifiers in java. 1. public 2. private 3. protect 4. default 1. Private members of class are not accessible on other classes of the same package or another package. The scope of private members is with in the class or class scope or (or) makes a method or a variable accessible only from within its own class. 2. Public members of a class available in the other classes of the same package or another package scope of public members is global scope or makes a class, method or variable accessible from any other class.

Protected members are an accessible in the sub classes of same package, but not in another package or makes a method or a variable accessible only to classes in the same package or subclasses of the class. 4. Default members are available in other classes of same package but not in another package default members scope is package scope. Q) Differencebetweenprotectedanddefault?***** Ans:- Protected members always available in sub class in the same package or another package. Default members are available in other classes of same package but not in another package default members scope is package scope.

Visibility From the same class From any class in the same package From any non-subclass class outside the package From a subclass in the same package From a subclass outside the same package Ex: package p1; class A{ int i; private char ch; public float F; protected double d; void disp( ){ i, ch, F, d; } package p1; class B extends A{ F, d; } package p1; class C { F, a1. d; a1.i; } package p2; class D extends A{ F,d; } Class E { a1.F; } package same;

C:\rnr>javadoc *.java We compile some .html files will be created with index .html file. This index .html is very important this is our files. H.W. 20. Create a figure class with 2 instance variables x, y in a package called gco path. Then import that package into rectangle class and the area of the rectangle (your rectangle class extends figure). Similarly derive triangle class and circle classes and display their areas. 21. Create a package with 3 classes to calculate square root value, power value and factorial values. Import this package into a main program and display the values. double value = math.pow(x, y); double value = math.sqrt(x);

Exception:- An exception is runtime error. Q) Whatare checkedexceptions?***** Ans:- These are the exceptions, which are detected by the compiler at the time of compilation.

Q) Whatare uncheckedexceptions?***** Ans:- All runtimeexeptionsare called as unchecked exceptions which are dectedby JVM. Q) Whatis differencebetweenexceptionand error?***** Ans:- An exception is an error that can be handled. An error cannot be handled it. Exception is an abnormal event in the program. If it occurs, the program is terminated abnormally in the middle. Exceptions are represented by classes in java. Every exception is a sub class to Exception class. An Error in a program or software is called bug . Removing the errors is called debugging . DeskCheckingis the solution for compiletimeerrors . Logical errors are the errors commited in the logic. These errors canot be detected by compiler or JVM. These errors can be detected by comparing the programme output with manually calculated results. Ex: //An Exception example class Ex { java.lang public static void main(String args[ ]) { Object try{ int n = avgs.length; Throwable System.out.println(n = +n); int a = 45/n; System.out.println(a = +a); Error Exception } catch (Arithmetic ac) { System.out.println(ac); } System.out.println(Class all); } } When there is an exception, abnormal termination will happen. This may spoil the user data. So the programmer should handle to exception by performing the following tasks. List of classesandExceptionclassesin java.langpackage: S.

1. The programmer should write all the statements, which may cause exceptions inside try block. try { statements; } JVM examines the statements inside try blocks for any exceptions, if there is an exception. It will jump into catch block. After storing exception details in a stack. try { statements; Exception Stack } catch(Exception class obj) { statements; } The JVM will jump before catch block. It will store exception details in stack.

COREJAVA
2. The programmer should write any messages to the user and also he should display exception details to the user in catch block. Note: - catchblockis executedonly if thereis an exception . 3. The programmer should close all the files and databases by using finally block. So that the data in the files and database is not lost. finally Block: - If any code in the try block is executed, then finally block is guaranteed to be executed regardless of whether any catch block is executed. finally block can be used to specify any clean up code. finally bock will not executed if we put System.exit(0); in the try block. Note: - finally statement or block is executed always whether there is an exception or not. try{ statements; } catch(Exception class obj){ statements; } finally{ statements; } Performing the above three steps is called exception handling. A try block must have atleast catch block or finally blcok. In the try block or in the catch block we can providebreak or return statements. finally block is optional. finally block must use when we write break or return statements in try or catch blocks. We can write try & catch blocks anywhere it means we can write try & catch blocks within a try & catch blocks, we can write try & catch blocks within a catch block and we can write try & catch blocks within a finally block also. In otherwords we write nested try & catch blocks. Ex: try{ try{ statements; } catch(Exception class obj){ statements; } finally{ statements; } }catch(Exception class obj){ statements; } A try block and catch block can be written either in a method or in a loop. When we are handling the multiple exceptions using try & catch blocks in first catch block we have to catch/write the subclass exception and in the second catch block we have to write superclass exception. Otherwise it throws UnreachableException. Ex: try{ statements; } catch(FileNotFoundException fofe) //FileNotFoundEception is a subclass of IOException{ statements; } catch(IOException ioe){ statements; } catch(Exception e){ statements; } finally{

close the resources; } A try block can haveany numberof catchblocks . try{ statements; } catch(Exception class obj){ statements; } catch(Exception class obj1){ statements; } catch(Exception class obj2){ statements; } But a try block can have only one finally block . try{ statements; } finally{ statements; statements; } DisplayError Message: try{ open_the_file } catch(<exceptionType obj>){ //appropriate exception handler obj.printStackTrace(); System.out.println(obj.getMessage()); } Using the capatured exception type object you can findout where the error is occured and what is the error messages. printStackTrace() will display the error message, the line where was the error occurred and the exception type at the console. getMessage() returns the error message alone. It doesnt tell us where the error was occurred and what type of exexption it is. Ex: class Ex{ public static void main(String args[ ]){ try{ System.out.println(n = +n); int a = 45/n; System.out.println(a = +a); } } catch (ArithmeticException ae){ System.out.println(ae); System.out.println(Please enter the values: ); } finally{ System.out.println(Class all); } } By handling exception that programs are called Robust programs. catch(ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException aie) { aie.printStateTrace()

System.out.println(Array index is not within the range); } 1. We can write a try block followed by multiple catch blocks. We cant write a catch block without a try block. 2. But we can write a try block without a catch block. Ex: //Not handles the exception import java.io.*; class Sample { void accept() { BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.println(Enter your name: ); String name = br.readLine(); System.out.println(Hello+name); } } class Demo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { Sample s = new Sample(); s.accept(); } } Ex: //NullPointerException public class NPE { static String s; public static void main(String[] args) { System.out.println(s.length()); } } O/P: - It will throw NullPointerException Throwsclause:- This is used to throw out an exception without handling it. void accept() throws IOException throws clause is always specified against a method. Using throws clause you can specified multiple exceptions. throws cluase is used to propagate an exception. Whenever throws clause is used against a method, the caller of the method must handle that particular exception by writing try & catch blocks. Note: - throws exception represents any type of exception because exception is the superclass of all exceptions. Throw: - This is used to create an exception object and throw it out of a try block. Throw is used in try block. If we are not storing the instance of any exception into an object variable of that exception type, if we are directly throwing the exception of the created object, when we don't associated any instance with the object variable of itself it is called as Annonymous object or Annonymous instance . So throw is the example of an annonymous class. Ex: //throw import java.io.*; class Demo { static void Demo() { try {
Page 86 of 191

COREJAVA
System.out.println(Inside Demo); throw new NullPointerException(My Data) } catch(NullPointerException ne) { System.out.println(ne); } } } public static void main(String args[ ]) { Demo() //Demo is static method. } } Q) Whatis the differencebetweenthrowsand throw?***** Ans:Throws clause is used not to handle an exception . Throw clause is used to forcibly to create an exception and handle it using throw. 1. Throw clause is used in between testing. 2. This is used to create user-defined exceptions and throw them out. a) Inbuilt Exceptions:- These are the exceptions available in java. Ex: ArithmeticException ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException StringIndexOutOfBoundsException IOException RuntimeException Any type of Runtime Exception FileNotFoundException NoSuchMethodException ClassNotFoundException NumberFormatException InterruptedException NullPointerException CheckedExceptions FileNotFoundException ClassNotFoundException CloneNotSupportedException NoSuchMethodException NoSuchFieldException IllegalAccessException InstantiationException InteruptedException IOException SQLException SocketException EndOfFileException UncheckedExceptions IndexOutOfBoundsException StringIndexOutOfBoundsException ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException ArrayStoreException ArithmeticException ClassCastException UnsupportedOperationException NegativeArraySizeException NullPointerException NumberFormatException ObjectNotFoundException IllegalArgumentException IllegalStateException IllegalThreadStateException IllegalMonitorStateException SecurityException TypeNotPresentException (Addedby J2se5.) Checked exceptions are compiletime exceptionssubclasses java.lang.Exception. Unchecked exceptions are run timeexceptionssubclasses are java.lang.RuntimeExcetion.

COREJAVA
b) User definedExceptions:- These are exceptions create by user. CreatingUser definedException:1. Write your own Exception class that extends Exception class,Throwable,RuntimeException(Simply the super class of corresponding type). 2. Write a default constructor in your own Exception class. 3. Write a parameterized constructor with a String as a parameter. 4. When ever needed create an object to your Exception class and throw it and clause. Ex: class MyException extends Exception { private static int accno[ ] = {1001, 1002, 1003}; private static String name[ ] = {Raju, Rani, Sita, Vinay}; private static double bal[ ] = {5000, 12000, 50,7007.77, 1990.99, 1200.75}; MyException() { state; } MyException(String str) { super(str); } public static void main(String args[ ]) { try { System.out.println(Account+\t + Name+\t + Balance+\t); for(int i = 0; i<5; i++) { System.out.println(accno[ i ] + \t + name[ i ] + \t + bal[ i ]); //If bal<2000 then paid No Exception MyException me = new MyException(); throw me; } } catch (MyException me) { me.printStateTrace(); } } } Ex 2: - class InvalidCCExcep extends Exception{ String ccn=""; public InvalidCCExcep(){ } public InvalidCCExcep(String cc){ this.ccn=cc; } public String toString(){ return "Credit Card Number " +ccn +" is invalid. Try Again"; } } public class UserDefineExcep{ public static void main(String as[]){ String ccn=as[0]; try{ m1(ccn); }catch(InvalidCCExcep e){ System.out.println(e); } }

public static void m1(String ccn) throws InvalidCCExcep{ if(ccn.length()==16){ System.out.println("OK..OK"); } else{ throw new InvalidCCExcep(ccn); //If we are not storing the instance of InvalidCCException into an object variable of that InvalidCCException type, if we are directly throwing the InvalidCCException of the created object, when we don't associatedany instancewiththe objectvariableof itself it is calledas Annonymousobjector Annonymousinstance. } } } WrapperClasses:We should convert primitive data types into objects because of the following reasons. 1. Different applications on internet send or receive data in the form of objects. 2. All the classesin java.util packageact upononly objects. To convert primitive data type in to objects we need wrapper class. A wrapper class is a class, whose object wraps or contains primitive data type. Wrappingmeanscontainingor storing. All wrapper classes are defined in java.langpackage. Wrapper classes overridden the equals() and hashCode() of object class. A wrapper class is a final class that prevents the inheritance i.e. it cannot extends other classes. S. No. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

sine value. Collectionsclasses(or) Containerclass: A Collections class or Container class whose object can store a group of other objects. A Container object stores references of other objects. Collection classes or Container the classes whose Objects can handle a group of other objects. Stack: - A stack represents arrangement of elements in LIFO order. To insert elements (Elements means objects). Insertion and deletion of elements will take place only from outside called stack of the top. Inserting elements into the stack is called push stack. 6 Removing elements from the stack is called pop operations. 5 4 Ex: 3 1: - A pile pf plates in a cafeteria is an example for stack. 2 Elements 2. Shunting of coaches to railway engine is an example for stack. 1 Creationof Stack:1. To createa stack: Stack st = new Stack(); 2. To knowwhethera stackis emptyor not, use empty(): Boolean b = st.empty(); If the stack is empty it returns true, if the stack is not empty it returns the false. 3. To pushan elementfroma stack: st.push(element); 4. To popan elementfroma stack: object element =st.pop(); 5. To searchfor an elementin the stack: int i = st.search(); This method returns -1, if the element is not found. i represents the position of element in the stack from the top. Ex: //Stack operations import java.io.*; import java.util.*; class StackDemo { static void stpush(Stack st, int a) { st.push(new Integer(a)); } static void stpop(Stack st) { Integer a = (Integer)st.pop(); System.out.println(Popped = +a); } static void stsearch(Stack st, int a) { int i = st.search(new Integer(a)); return i; } public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException, EmptyStackException { //vars Stack st = new Stack(); BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); int element, pos; int choice = 0;

Linked list is more flexible way of arranged elements than the stack. Retrieving nodes one by one done use links. 1. To createa Linked List: LinkedList ll = new LinkedList(); 2. To addelements(objects)to a linkedlist ll.add(element); To add element in 2nd position ll.add(2, element); 3. To removefirst elementfromthe linkedlist ll.removeFirst(element); To remove last element from the linked list

} Arrays:- Arrays is class, which contain methods to handle array 1. To sort the elementsof an arrayinto ascendingorder Arrays.sort(arr); 2. To sort only a rangeof elementsof the array Array.sort(arr, start, end); This sorts the elements of arr starting from start till end -1 element. 3. To search for element n array Arrays.binarySearch(arr, element); This search for element in the array arr and returns its position. If the element is not found, it returns a negative value. Note: - binary Search()methodwill act only on a sortedarray. 4. To compare two arrays, to know if they are same or not. Arrays.equal(arr1, arr2); This returns true, if arr1 and arr2 are same else if returns false. Ex: //Sorting and searching in an array import java.io.*; import java.util.*; class Arr1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.println(How many elements? ); int n = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); //Create in array with size n int arr[ ] = new int[ n ]; for(int i = 0; i<n; i++) { System.out.println(Enter Element: ); Arr[ i ] = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); } //Sort the array in ascending order Array.sort(arr); System.out.println(The sorted array: ); display(arr); //Search for an element System.out.println(Enter element to search: ); int x = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); int pos = Array.binarySearch(arr, x); if(pos<0) System.out.println(Element not found); else System.out.println(Element found at position: +(pos+1)); } static void display(int arr[ ]) for(int i = 0; i<arr.length; i++) System.out.println(arr[ i ]); } } H.W. 24.

Cloning:- Cloning is a technology to obtain exact copy of a plant, a bird,an animal or a human being. This cloning technology is available now. Cloningin java: - Obtaining bitwise exact copy of an existing object is called as cloning. There are two types of cloning 1. Shallow Cloning: - In this type of cloning any modifications to the original object will also modify the cloned object. 2. DeepCloning:- In this type of modification to original objects will not affect the cloned object. Deep cloning or copy can be achieved through serialization. This may be fast to code but will have performance implications. Ex: //Cloning class Employee implements Cloneable { int id; String name; Employee(int i, String s) { id = i; name = s; } void display() { System.out.println(id = +id); System.out.println(name = +name); } Employee myClone() throws CloneNotSupportedException { return (Employee)super.clone(); } } class CloneDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws CloneNotSupportedException { //Create an obj naturally Employee e1 = new Employee(10, Sagar); e1.display(); //Create another obj by cloning Employee e2 = e1.myClone(); E2.display(); } } (or) Ex: //Cloning class Employee implements Cloneable { int id; String name; Employee(int i, String s) { id = i; name = s; } void display() { System.out.println(id = +id); System.out.println(name = +name); }

Interface Cloneable will not have any methods. clone() method is object class. Object is super class. By writing implements Cloneable the programmer is indicating that classs objects are cloneable. An interface without any methods is called marking interface or tagging interface. It specifies or indicates a special purpose for the class objects. The interfaces with no defined methods act like markers. They just tell the compiler that the objects of the classes implementing the interfaces with no defined methods need to be treated differently. Ex: - cloneable.Serializable. Do not use serialization if you do not have to. A common use of serialization is to use it to send an object over the network or if the state of an object needs to be persisted to a flat file or a database. The objects stored in an HTTP session should be serializable to support in-memory replication of sessions to achieve scalability. Objects are passed in RMI (Remote Method Invocation) across network using serialization.

Collections
A group of elements are handled by representing with an array. A group of objects are also handled with array. To store objects in Array Employee arr[ ] = new Employee[100]; for(int i = 0; i<100; i++) { arr[ i ] = new Employee(); }

Collectionsobject(or) ContainerObject:- It is an object that stores a group other objects. Collectionsclass(or) Containerclass:- It is a class whose object can store other objects. All collection classes have defined in java.util package. Frame work means group of classes. Q) Whatis collectionsframework?***** Ans:Collections frame work is a class library to handle groups of objects. Collection frame work is defined in java.util package.

Q) Whatis the differencebetweencollectionand Collections?***** Ans:- Collection is an interface. Collections is a class. Collections objects will not act upon primitive datatypes. (or) collections objects will not store primitive datatypes. Collections objects stores references of other objects. All collection classes are defined into 3 types. 1. Sets: - A set represents a group of objects is called as Set. Ex: - HashSet, LinkedHashSet, TreeSet, etc 2. Lists: - A list represents the group of elements or objects. List is also similar to set. It will also store elements or objects. Sets will not allow the duplicate values but Lists will duplicate values. This is the difference between Lists and Sets. Ex: - ArrayList, Vector, LinkedList etc

Collection objects

Q) Whichof the collectionclasswill not allowduplicatevalues?***** Ans:- Sets of the collection class will not allow the duplicate values. Set will not stores the object in ordered/sorted order. Lists of the collection class will allow the duplicate values. List will stores the object in ordered/sorted order. Sorted means iterating through a collection in a natural sorted order. 3. Maps:- A map stores elements in the form of the keys and value pairs. Ex: - Hashmap, Hashtable etc List of interfacesandclassesin java.util package(or) Collectionframework: S. No. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Set List Map SortedSet SortedMap Iterator ListIterator Enumeration Interfaces ArrayList Vector LinedList HashSet TreeSet Collections LinkedHashSet HashMap TreeMap HashTable CollectionClasses

11. LinkedHashMap ArrayList:- It is dynamically growing array that stores objects. It is not synchronized 23. 1. To create an ArrayList ArrayList arl = new ArrayList(); ArrayList arl = new ArrayList(100); 2. To add objects use add() method. arl.add(Apple); arl.add(2, Apple); 3. To remove objects use remove() method. arl.remove(Apple); arl.remove(2); 4. To know number of objects use size() method. int n = arl.size(); 5. To covert ArrayList into an array use toArray() method. object x[ ] = arl.toArray(); Object is the super class of other classes including user defined classes also. When we are retreiveing the elements from ArrayList, it will maintains and gives the same order what we have added the elements to the ArrayList. ArrayList doesnt supports the null values. ArrayList supports sort method by using the below code Collections.sort(al); //al is ArrayList Class object reference. Ex: //ArrayList creation with string objects import java.util.*; class ArrayListDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an ArrayList ArrayList arl = new ArrayList(); //Add elements to arl arl.add(Apple); // Apple, Grapes, Guava, Banana are objects arl.add(Grapes); arl.add(Guava); arl.add(Banana); arl.add(Mango); //Display the content of ArrayList (or) in arl System.out.println(Array list = +arl); //Remove elements arl.remove(Apple); arl.remove(2); //Display the content of ArrayList (or) in arl System.out.println(Array list = +arl); //Find number of elements in arl System.out.println(Size of Array list = +arl.size()); //Use Terator to retrieve elements Iterator it = arl.iterator(); while(it.hasNext()) System.out.println(it.next()); } }

There are three types of interfaces are available, which are useful to retrieve the objects or elements one by one from array list. They are 1. Iterator 2. ListIterator 3. Enumeration
23

Synchronized:- It means only one process will allow to act on one object.
Page 101 of 191

COREJAVA
Whatare the differencebetweenIteratorandListIterator:Iterator 1. Iterator supports only hasNext(), next() and remove() methods. 2. Access the collections in the forward direction only. 3. Iterator is a super interface ListIterator 1. Iterator supports add(), set(), next(), hasNext(), previous(), hasPrevious(), nextIndex(), previousIndex() and remove() methods. 2. Access the collections in forward and backward directions. 3. ListIterator is the sub interface of Iterator super interface.

Whatare the differencebetweenIteratorandEnumeration:Iterator 1. Iterator supports a remove() method. 2. It is not synchronized. 3. Iterator supports ArrayList, LinkedList,Vector, HashMap, HashTable. 4. It doesnt supports legacy methods. Enumeration 1. Enumeration doesnt supports a remove() method. 2. It is synchronized. 3. Enumeration doesnt ArrayList,LinkedList, HashMap. 4. It supports legacy methods hasMoreElements(), nextElement(). supports like as

Vector:- It is a dynamically growing array that stores objects. But it is synchronized. When the object is synchronized then we will get reliable results or values. Vectors are suitable objects. 1. To create a vector Vector v = new Vector(); Vector v = new Vector (100); 2. To know the size of Vector, use size() method. int n = v.size(); 3. To add elements use add() method. v.add(obj); v.add(2, obj); 4. To retrieve elements use get() method v.get(2); 5. To remove elements use remove() method v.remove(2); To remove all elements v.clear(); 6. To know the current capacity, use capacity() method int n = v.capacity(); 7. To search for last occurrence of an element use indexOf() method int n = v . intdexOf(obj); 8. To search for last occurrence of an element use lastIndexOf() method int n = v . lastIndexOf(obj); 9. Increases the capacity of this vector, if necessary, to ensure that it can hold at least the number of components specified by the minimum capacity argument. void ensureCapacity(int minCapacity); ArrayList is not synchronized by default, but by using some methods we can synchronized the ArrayList. List myList = Collections.synchronizedList(myList); Vector is synchronized default. When we are retreiveing the elements from Vector, it maintains and gives the same order what we have added the elements to the Vector. Vector doesnt supports the null values.
Page 102 of 191

COREJAVA
Ex: //A Vector of int values import java.util.*; class VectorDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an empty Vector Vector v = new Vector (); //Take (an one dimensional) int type array int x [ ] = {10, 22, 33, 44, 60, 100}; //Read int values from x and store into v for(int i = 0; i< x.lenght(); i++) v.add(new Integer(x[ i ])); //Retrieve and display the elements for(int i = 0; i< v.size(); i++) System.out.println(v.get(i)); //Retrieve elements using ListIterator ListIterator lit = v. listIterator(); //In the above statement ListIterator is an Interface, listIterator() is a method System.out.println(In forward direction: ); while(lit.hasNext()) System.out.print (lit.next() +\t); System.out.println (\n In reverse direction: ); while(lit.previous()) System.out.print(lit.previous() + \t); } } ArrayList 1. An ArrayList is dynamically growing array that stores objects. 2. It is not synchronized. 3. It is efficient than Vector, due to ArrayList is fast iterartion and fast random access. 4. ArrayList supports only Iterator interface. 5. ArrayList doesnt supports the legacy methods. 6. ArrayList doesnt supports the capacity(). Its default capacity is 10. Vector 1. Vector is dynamically growing array that stores objects. 2. It is synchronized. 3. It is not efficient than ArrayList, it is slower than ArrayList due to its synchronized methods. 4. Vector supports Iterator and enumeration interfaces. 5. Vector supports the legacy methods like hasMoreElements(), nextElement(). 6. Vector supports the capacity(). The default capacity of vector is 10.

Whatare differencesbetweenArrayListandVector:-

Maps: - A map represents storage of elements in the form of the key and value pairs. Keys must be unique and keys cannot allow duplicate values. HashTable:- Hashtable stores object in the form of keys and value pairs. It is synchronized. 1. To create a HashTable HashTable ht = new HashTable(); //Initial Capacity = 11, load factor = 0.75 HashTable ht = new HashTable(100); 2. To store key-Value pair the HashTable ht.put(Sachin, Cricket Player); 3. To get the value when is given ht.get(Sachin); 4. To remove the key (and its corresponding value) ht.remove(Sachin); 5. To know the number of keys in the HashTable. int n = ht.size();
Page 103 of 191

COREJAVA
6. To clear all the keys. ht.clear(); Q) Whatis loadfactor?***** Ans:- Load factor determines the point at which the capacity of HashTable or HashMap will be automatically doubled. Ex: - For HashTable initial capacity (11) X load factor (0.75) = 8 i.e. After storing 8th pair the capacity of the HashTable will be doubled i.e. becomes 22 (11 x 2). Initial capacity = 11, this value depends on the version. Ex: //HashTable with Cricket Scores import java.util.*; import java.io.*; class HashtableDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //Create an empty hash table HashTable ht = new HashTable(); //Store Player Name, Score // Here Player Name is Key and Score is a Value ht.put(Amarnadh, new Integer(50)); ht.put(Sachin, new Integer(150)); ht.put(Dhoni, new Integer(125)); ht.put(Kapil, new Integer(175)); ht.put(Ganguly, new Integer(86)); //Retrieve all keys Enumeration e = ht.keys(); System.out.println(Player Name: ); While(e.hasMoreElements()) System.out.println(e.nextElement()); //Ask for Player Name from Keyboard BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(InputStreamReader(System.in)); // In the above statement (System.in) represents Keyboard System.out.println(Enter Player Name: ); String name = br.readLine(); //Find number of runs of this player Integer score = (Integer) ht.get(name); if(score!=null) { int runs = score.intValue(); System.out.println(Name+Scored runs = +runs); } else System.out.println(Player not found); } } Ex 2: import java.util.*; public class DemoHashTable { public static void main(String[] args) { Hashtable ht=new Hashtable(); ht.put("1", "Babu"); ht.put("2", "Anand"); ht.put("3", "Mogili"); ht.put("0", "@Marlabs"); System.out.println("---Retreiveing the elements--- = "+ht); System.out.println(ht.get("1"));

Enumeration will not maintain objects in the same order. IOException may caused by readLine() method. IO stands for input/output. Playernames are all keys and scores are all values. When we retreving the elements or keys using HashTable it will gives the elements or keys in revrse order only. In HashTable duplicate keys are not allowed but duplicate values are allowed. HashMap:- HashMap stores objects in the form of keys and value pairs. It is not synchronized. 1. To create a HashMap HashMap hm = new HashMap(); //Initial Capacity = 16, load factor = 0.75 HashMap hm = new HashMap(101); 2. To store key-Value pair the HashMap hm.put(Sachin, Cricket Player); 3. To get the value when is given hm.get(Sachin); 4. To remove the key (and its corresponding value) hm.remove(Sachin); 5. To know the number of key-value pairs in the HashMap. int n = hm.size(); 6. To clear all the keys. hm.clear(); HashMap is similar to HashTable but the difference between these two is HashTable is synchronized but HashMap is not synchronized When we retreving the elements or keys using HashMap it will gives the elements or keys irregular order, not even the same order that we have added keys and elements. In HashMap duplicate keys are not allowed but duplicate values are allowed. Map myMap = Collections.synchronizedMap(myMap); Ex: //Telephone entry book import java.util.*; import java.io.*; class Tele { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //Vars HashMap hm = new HashMap(); String name, str; Long phno; BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(InputStreamReader(System.in)); //Menu while(true) //It is an infinite loop { System.out.println(1 Enter entries into Phone Book); System.out.println(2 Lookup for a Phone Number); System.out.println(3 Exit); int n = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine()); //Depending on n value, perform a task switch(n) { case 1: System.out.print(Enter Person Name: ); Name = br.readLine(); System.out.print(Enter Phone No. ); str = br.readLine(); //Convert str into Long obj phno = new Long(str);

It stores the objects in the form of key and value pairs. 2. It is not synchronized. 3. It will makes fastest updates (key/value pairs) so it is efficient than HashTable. 4. It supports only Iterator interface. 5. It doesnt supports legacy methods. 6. HashMap initial capacity is 16 and the capacity of HashMap depends on version of Java. 7. HashMap doesnt maintained the orderd of elements, not even the keys and the elements added to it. 8. HapMap takes only one null key and many null values. HashTable 1. It stores the objects in the form of key and value pairs. 2. It is synchronized. 3. It is not efficient than HashMap due to its synchronized methods. 4. HashTable supports Iterator and enumeration interfaces. 5. It supports legacy methods hasMoreElement(), nextElement(). like

6. HashTable initial capacity is 11 and the capacity of HashTable depends on version of Java. 7. HashTable maintained the orderd of elements in reverse. 8. HashTable doesnt takes null keys and null values.

StringTokenizer:- The StringTokenizer class is useful to break a string into small pieces, called tokens. 1. To create an object to StringTokenizer StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(str, delimiter); (or) StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(str, ,); (or) StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(str, , :); Here , : are called as delimiters 2. To find the next piece in the string. String piece = st.nextToken(); 3. To know if more pieces are remaining. booleab x = st.hasMoreTokens(); 4. To know how many number of pieces are there. int no = st.countTokens();

Page 108 of 191

COREJAVA
Token means piece of string. Ex: //Cutting the string into pieces import java.util.*; class STDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Take a string String str = It is our capital city called New Delhi; //brake the string into species StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(str, ); //retrieve the pieces and display System.out.println(The token are: ); while(st.hasMoreTokens()) { String s1 = st.nextToken(); System.out.println(s1); } } } (or) //Cutting the string into pieces import java.util.*; class STDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Take a string String str = It, is our: capital city, called New: Delhi; //brake the string into species StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(str, , : ); //retrieve the pieces and display System.out.println(The token are: ); while(st.hasMoreTokens()) { String s1 = st.nextToken(); System.out.println(s1); } } }

Form Name Address Server

Section Name Ok
Calendar:- This class is useful to handle, date & time. 1. To create an object to calendar class: Calendar cl = Calendar.getInstance(); 2. Use get() method to retrieve date or time from calendar object. This method returns an integer. cl.get(constant);
Page 109 of 191

COREJAVA
Note: Constants:Calendar.DATE Calendar.MONTH Calendar.YEAR Calendar.HOUR Calendar.MINUTE Calendar.SECOND 3. Use set() to get the date or time in the calendar object. cl.set(calendar.MONTH,10); //Default counting of January month starts with 0 booleab x = st.hasMoreTokens(); 4. To convert a date into string, use toString(). This method returns a string. cl.toString(); Gregorian calendar is another type class like as calendar class. Ex: //System date and time import java.util.*; class Cal { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an obj to calendar class Calendar cl = Calendar.getInstance(); //retrieve date details int dd = cl.get(Calendar.DATE); int mm = cl.get(Calendar.MONTH); int yy = cl.get(Calendar.YEAR); ++mm; System.out.println(System date: ); System.out.println(dd+ / +mm+ / +yy); //retrieve time details int h = cl.get(Calendar.HOUR); int m = cl.get(Calendar.MINUTE); int s = cl.get(Calendar.SECOND); System.out.println(System time: ); System.out.println(h+ : +m+ : +s)); } } Date Class:- Date class is class useful to handle date and time. 1. To create an object to Date class. Date d = new Date(); 2. Format the date and times using getDateInstance() or getDateTimeInstance() methods of DateFormat class. This is in java.txt package. Syntax:- DateFormat fmt = DateFormat.getDateInstance(formatconst, region); Here region is the place/the country. Ex:-DateFormat fmt=DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.Medium, Locale.UK); Syntax:- DateFormat fmt = DateFormat.getDateInstance(formatconst, formatconst region); Ex: - DateFormat fmt = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.Medium, DateFormat.SHORT, Locale.US); Note: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------formatconst Example(region= LocaleUK) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DateFormat.LONG 03 September 2004 19:43:14 GMT + 5.30 DateFormat.FULL 03 September 2004 19:43:14 oclock GMT + 5.30 DateFormat.MEDIUM 03-Sep-04 19:43:14 DateFormat.LONG 03/09/04 7.43 pm ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Page 110 of 191

COREJAVA
3. Applying format to Date object is done by format () method. String str = fmtt.format(d); Ex: //To display system date and time import java.util.*; import java.text.*; class MyDate { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //Create an obj to Date class Date d = new Date(); //Store the format in DateFormat obj DateFormat fmt = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM, DateFormat.SHORT, Locale.UK); //Applying the format to d String s = fmt.format(d); //Display the formatted date and time System.out.println(System date and time: +s); } } Here d represents the system date & time already consists after creating an object. H.W. 1. Create an Employee class with an employees id, name, and address store objects of this class in an ArrayList. When an employees ID is given, display his name and address. 2. Create a vector with a group of strings. Sort them and display them in a ascending order. Display them in reverse order also? 3. Create HashTable with some students hall tickets no.s & their results. Type a hall ticket number and display his result? 4. Cut the string into pairs of pieces: India=>Delhi, America=>Washington, Britain=>London, France=>Paris Now display the token as given below. City Capital Delhi India Washington America London Britain Paris France Q) Whatis the differencebetweenObservableandObserver?***** Ans:- Observable is a class is used to create subclasses that other parts of our program can observe. When an object of such a subclass undergoes a change, Observing classes are notified. Observing classes must implement the Observer interface. It will have more methods than Observer interface. An Observer is an interface, which is useful to observe an observable object, and must implement the observer interface. This interface will defines only one method i.e. void update(Observable observOb, Object arg). Here observOb is the object being observed, and arg is the value passed by notifyObservers(). The update() method is called when a change in the observed object take place. Stream: - A stream represents flow of data from one place to another place. They are two types of streams, 1. Input Streams:- It receives or reads the data to output stream. 2. OutputStream:- It sends or writes the data to some other place. Streams are represented by classes in java.io package. Streams (java.io): - A stream is a sequence of bytes, or characters traveling from source to a destination. When the bytes passing then it is called as byte stream and when the characters are passing then it is called as character stream. To handle data in the form of bytes, the abstract class: InputStream and OutputStream are used. InputStream |

Storing objects in a file called serialization. Retrieving the data from files is called de-serialization. Reader | ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | BufferedReader CharArrayReader IntputStreamReader PrintReader | FileReader Writer | ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | BufferedWriter CharArrayWriter IntputStreamWriter PrintWriter | FileWriter ByteStream stores the data in the form of bytes, CharacterStream stores the data in the form of characters. Buffered means a block of memory. a) Buffered Reader/Buffered Writer: - Handles character (text) by buffering them. They provide efficiency. b) CharArrayReader/CharArrayWriter:- Handles array of characters. c) InputStreamReader/OutputStreamWriter: - They are bridge between byte streams and character streams. Reader reads bytes and then decode them into 16-bit Unicode character, write decodes character into bytes and then write. d) PrinterReader/PrinterWriter:- Handle printing of characters on the screen. A file is an organized collection of data.

HowcanyouimproveJavaI/O performance: Java applications that utilise Input/Output are excellent candidates for performance tuning. Profiling of Java applications that handle significant volumes of data will show significant time spent in I/O operations. This means substantial gains can be had from I/O performance tuning. Therefore, I/O efficiency should be a high priority for developers looking to optimally increase performance. The basic rules for speeding up I/O performance are: ? Minimise accessing the hard disk.
Page 112 of 191

COREJAVA
? Minimise accessing the underlying operating system. ? Minimise processing bytes and characters individually. Let us look at some of the techniques to improve I/O performance. ? Use bufferingto minimise disk access and underlying operating system. As shown below, with buffering large chunks of a file are read from a disk and then accessed a byte or character at a time. Withoutbuffering: inefficient code try{ File f = new File("myFile.txt"); FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(f); int count = 0; int b = ; while((b = fis.read() ) != -1){ if(b== '\n') { count++; } } // fis should be closed in a finally block. fis.close() ; } catch(IOException io){} Note: fis.read() is a native method call to the underlying system. WithBuffering:yieldsbetter performance try{ File f = new File("myFile.txt"); FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(f); BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(fis); int count = 0; int b = ; while((b = bis.read()) != -1){ if(b== '\n') { count++; } } //bis should be closed in a finally block. bis.close() ; } catch(IOException io){} Note: bis.read() takes the next byte from the input buffer and only rarely access the underlying operating system. Instead of reading a character or a byte at a time, the above code with buffering can be improved further by reading one line at a time as shown below: FileReader fr = new FileReader(f); BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(fr); While (br.readLine() != null) count++; By default the System.out is line buffered, which means that the output buffer is flushed when a new line character is encountered. This is required for any interactivity between an input prompt and display of output. The line buffering can be disabled for faster I/O operation as follows: FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(file); BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(fos, 1024); PrintStream ps = new PrintStream(bos,false); System.setOut(ps); while (someConditionIsTrue) System.out.println(blahblah); } Usesof files: 1. We can store the data permanently into the hard disk. (When we are strong the data in HashTable, vector etc the data will store temporarily on the RAM).
Page 113 of 191

COREJAVA
2. Once we stored the data in the form of file we can share that data in different programs. The above two are main advantages of file. System.in it is a InputStream object Here System is a class java.io. package. in is a field. System.in InputStream obj Keyboard System.out PrintSream obj Monitor System.err PrintSream obj Monitor System.out will displays normal messages on the monitor, System.err will displays error messages on the monitor. Q) Whatis use of Stream?***** Ans:- Stream will handle input/output devices. The achieving the hardware independent of java programs we are using stream.

DataInputStream

Ex: -

myfile

//Creating a file import java.io.*; class Create1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException { //Attach the keyboard to DataInputStream DataInputStream dis = new DataInputStream(System.in); //Connect file to FileOutputStream FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(myfile); //reading data from DataInputStream and write that data into FileOutputStream char ch; System.out.println(Enter data (@at end): ); while((ch = char) dis.read()) != @) fout.write(ch); //close the file fout.close(); } } After executing & running the program, we can also open file using command type (i.e. a MsDos Command). Every time executing & running the program old data will be remove/overwrite and new data will stored. To overcome this problem or to appending the data we have to use true in the following statement. FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(myfile, true); Ex: //Creating a file import java.io.*; class Create1 { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws IOException {

1. File converts to compressed. 2. File format is changed. In java language to zip and unzip a file we will use below two classes. 1. DeflaterOutputStream: - It is used to zip the file. 2. InflaterOutputStream: - It is used to unzip the file. These above two classes are in java.util.zip packagae. Ex: //Zipping import java.util.*; dos import java.util.zip.*; Writing Writing class Compress here here { public static void main(String args) File 2 File 1 throws Exception { attach fos attach fos //attach file1 to FileInputStream FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(file1); //attach file2 to FileOutputStream FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(file2); //attach fos to DeflaterOutputStream DeflaterOutputStream dos = new DeflaterOutputStream(fos); //read data from fis and write into dos int data; while((data = fis.read()) != -1) dos.write(data); //close the files fis.close(); dos.close(); } } Here we have to create file1 using Ms-Dos Edit command save it and then execute the java file.

W. 5. Copy a file content into another file (new file) 6. Append the contents of one file to another file existing file. 7. Count the no. of characters, words, and lines in a text file. Network: Inter connections of computers is called Network. A client is a machine that sends a request for some service. Server is a machine that provides service to the clients. Internet is a network of all the computers existing on the earth. ISP Internet Service Provider. The software which is available on the server is called Web Server. Ex: - Apache, Tomcat, Web Logic, Web Sphere, etc Protocol represented by a set of rules, to be followed by every computer in network. Ex: - TCP/IP Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol HTTP is most widely used protocol on internet. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used when we are downloading files. SMTP (Short Mail Transfer Protocol) is used for sending mails. POP (Post Office Protocol) is used to receiving mails. Internet protocol address is a Unique ID number is given to every computer in network. Ex: 192.45.50.01 ----- It is a IP address of server. 192.45.50.01 --------- is a equal to like www.yahoo.com DNS Domain Naming System, It will convert the name into the IP address. The current version of IP address is 6, which uses 16 bytes.

COREJAVA
Ans: 1. When we use new socket we use a new port number. 2. On the same socket if the service changes.

Someallottedport numbers:S. No. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Ex: Port Number 13 21 23 25 67 80 109 Date and time services. FTP, which transfer files. Telnet, which provides remote login. SMTP, which delivers mail messages. BOOTP, which provides configuration at boot time. HTTP, which transfer webpage POP, this enables users to access mail boxes on remote system. Application

java.net package contains classes to create a socket for server and client. Socket is a class to create a Socket client side. ServerSocket is a class to create a Socket server side. These two classes are in java.net package. //Create a server that sends messages import java.io.*; import java.net.*; class Server Server { public static void main(String args) Socket throws Exception { //Create Server Socket Client ServerSocket ss= new Socket ServerSocket(777); //make that Socket accepts Client connection Socket s = ss.accept(); System.out.println(Connection Established); //attach OutputStream to Socket OutputStream obj = s.getOutputStream(); //to send data to the Socket PrintStream ps = new PrintStream(obj); //now send data String str = Hello; ps.println(str); ps.println(Bye); //Disconnect the Server s.close(); ps.close(); } } Now compile this program and dont run it, then we have to create socket for client side. [ To display IP address we have to use command igcong Syntax: -C:\rnr>ipconfig ] Ex: //A Client that receives data import java.io.*; import java.net.*; class Client1 { public static void main(String args)

throws Exception { //Create Client Socket Socket s= new Socket(ipaddress/loacalhost, 777); //attach InputStream to Socket InputStream obj = s.getInputStream(); //To receive the data to this Socket BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(obj)); //Accept data coming from Server String str; while(str=br.readLine()) !=null) System.out.println(str); //Disconnect the Server s.close(); br.close(); } } We can run as many JVMs at a time. Communicatingfro Server:1. Create a ServerSocket ServerSocket ss = new ServerSocket(Port No.); 2. Accept any Client Socket s = ss.accept(); ------ It returns Socket object. 3. To send data, connect the OutputStream to the Socket OutputStream obj = s.getOutputStream(); 4. To receive data from the Client, connect InputStream to the Socket InputStream obj = s.getInputStream(); 5. Send data to the Client using PrintStream Ex: PrintStream ps = new PrintStream(obj); ps.print(str); ps.println(str); 6. Read data coming from the Client using BufferedReader. BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(obj); ch = br.read(); str = br.readLine(); CommunicatingfromClient: 1. Create a Client Socket Socket s= new Socket(ipaddress/loacalhost, 777); 2. To send data connect the OutputStream to the Socket OutputStream obj = s.getOutputStream(); 3. To receive data fro the Server, connect InputStream to the Socket InputStream obj = s.getInputStream(); 4. Send data to the Server using DataOutputStream. Ex: DataOutputStream dos = new DataOutputStream(obj); Dos.writebyte(str); 5. Read data coming from the Server using BufferedReader BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(obj); ch = br.read(); str = br.readLine(); 3. ClosingCommunication:Close all Streams and Sockets ps.close(); br.close(); dos.close(); ss.close(); s.close(); RMI (Remote Method Invocation) It is a technology to call and use remote methods of remote objects.

Write client server programs so that the client sends the name of a file to the server and the server sends the file content to client display the file contents at client side (the file should present in the server).

Multi Threading
Thread: - A thread represents a process of execution (or) executing the set of statements is called a thread. Every java program is executed by using one thread i.e. is called main thread. JVM will execute statements step by step. //Every java program has a thread ---------class Current ---------JVM { ---------or public static void main(String args) Microprocessor { Statements System.out.println(This is first line); Thread t = Thread.currentThread(); System.out.println(Present thread = +t); System.out.println(Its name = +t.getName()); } } C:\rnr>javac Current.java C:\rnr>java Current O/P: - This is first line Present Thread = Thread[main, 5, main] Here main is a thread name. 5 is the Priority Number. [main, 5, main] is called as Thread group. From the above thread name is main. Thread has priority number. Priority number will varies from 1 to 10. Priority No. 1 ------- Minimum Priority Priority No. 5 ------- Normal Priority Priority No. 10 ------- Maximum Priority Main thread priority number is 5. We can provide more threads to the microprocessor. Microprocessor will execute the 10billions of machine code instructions per second. Executing the tasks (one or more statements is two types. 1. Singletasking:- Executing one task at a time is called single tasking. In a Single tasking lot of processor Task time wasted. Microprocessor Ex: -

COREJAVA
TimeSlice: - Time slice is the time allotted by the Microprocessor to execute each task.

Microprocessor

Memory Task 0.25ms 0.25ms 0.25ms 0.25ms

Microprocessor will allot equal timings (0.25milli seconds) for each task.

RoundRobinMethod:- Microprocessor uses round robin method to execute several tasks simultaneously. Executing first task after last task is called round robin method. Ex: - Robin is a bird which will comes down by making rounds and it will jump up by making rounds thats why they have compared the microprocessor like that above. 2. Multitasking:- Executing several tasks simultaneously is called multitasking. a) Processbasedmultitasking:- Executing several programs at a time is called process based multitasking. Time slice, Round robin methods are process based multitasking. b) Thread based multitasking: - Executing several Three parts of a program simultaneously is called Microprocessor thread based multitasking. diff. Using more than one thread is called types multithreading to perform multiple tasks of simultaneously at a time. blocks Createa thread:1. Write a class that extends thread class or implements runnable interface. Thread class, runnable implements will helpful to create a thread. These two are available in java.lang package. 2. Write public void run in the class thread will execute only this method. public void run() Thread cant act upon any method, but default it works only on run() method. 3. Create an object to the class. 4. Attach a thread to this object. 5. Start thread, then will act upon that object. Ex: //Creating thread Class MyThread extend Thread { public void run() { for(int i = 1; i<100000; i++) { System.out.println(i); } } } class TDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { MyThread obj = new MyThread();
Page 124 of 191

COREJAVA
Thread t1 = new Thread(); t1.start(); } } stop() method is used to stop the thread in old versions. But stop() method is deprecated in new versions. Forcibly to terminate the program we have to use control + c (Ctrl+c keys in the keyboard). To stop the thread also we have to use control + c keys. Ex: //Creating thread and smoothly terminate/stop the program or thread Import java.io.*; Class MyThread extend Thread { run() boolean stop = false; { public void run() ----{ ----for(int i = 1; i<100000; i++) Microprocessor } { System.out.println(i); if(stop) return; object } } } class TDemo { public static void main(String args[ ]) { MyThread obj = new MyThread(); Thread t1 = new Thread(); t1.start(); System.in.read(); obj.stop = true; } } This above program is for stopping the thread smoothly. Q) Howcanyoustopthe threadwhichis running?***** Ans:- 1. Declare a boolean variable and initialize it as false Ex: boolean stop = false; 2. When ever the thread should be stopped store true into this variable Ex: obj.stop = true; 3. If the variable becomes true using return statement come out run() method Ex: if(stop) return;

Q) Whatis the differencebetweenextendsand implementRunnable?Whichone is advantage?***** Ans:There is no difference between these two. Implement Runnable is advantage because interfaces is always better than classes. If we extend thread class, there is no scope any another class, this is the limitation of extends. If we implement Runnable interface still there is a scope to extend other class. The main advantage of multitasking is utilizing a processor time in an optimum way. Ex: //Theatre Example class MyThread implements Runnable { String str; MyThread(String str) { this.str = str; }
Page 125 of 191

COREJAVA
public void run() { for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++) { System.out.println(str+ : +i); try{ Thread.sleep(2000); }catch(InterruptedException ie) { ie.printStackTrace(); } } }

run() { --------} object run()

Microprocessor

} { class Theatre ----{ ----t1 thread public static void main(String args[ ]) } { //create objects to MyThread class Microprocessor object 1 MyThread obj1=new MyThread(Cut ticket); MyThread obj2=new MyThread(Show ticket); run() //Create two threads and attach them to t2 thread { //these two objects ----Thread t1 = new Thread(obj1); ----Thread t2 = new Thread(obj2); //start the thread } t1.start(); object 2 t2.start(); } } When multiple threads are acting on the one or same object we will get sometimes unreliable results. Ex: //Two threads acting on one object class Reserve implements Runnable { int available = 1; int wanted; Reserve (int i) { wanted = i; } public void run() { System.out.println(Number of berths available = +available); if(available >= wanted) { String name = Thread.currentThread.getName(); System.out.println(wanted + berths reserved for+name); try{ Thread.sleep(2000); available = available wanted; } catch(Interrupted Exception ie){ } } else System.out.println(Sorry, no berths to reserve); }
Page 126 of 191

COREJAVA
} class Syn { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //create an obj to Reserve class with 1 berth Reserve obj = new Reserve(1); //create 2 threads and attach them to obj Thread t1 = new Thread(obj); Thread t2 = new Thread(obj); //give names to threads t1.setName(First Person); t2.setName(Second Person); //run the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); } } This above program will allot tickets for both persons. For this permanent solution we have to block the 2nd thread till the completion of the 1st thread. So we have to use synchronization method to block the 2nd thread. Ex: //Two threads acting on one object class Reserve implements Runnable { int available = 1; 2nd thread st int wanted; 1 thread Reserve (int i) { wanted = i; ------------------} public void run() ------------------synchronized(obj) ------------------{ System.out.println(Number of berths available = +available); if(available >= wanted) ------------------object { ------------------Synchronization String name = Thread.currentThread.getName(); -System.out.println(wanted + berths reserved for+name); try{ Thread.sleep(2000); available = available wanted; } catch(Interrupted Exception ie){ } } else System.out.println(Sorry, no berths to reserve); } } } class Syn { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //create an obj to Reserve class with 1 berth Reserve obj = new Reserve(1); //create 2 threads and attach them to obj Thread t1 = new Thread(obj); Thread t2 = new Thread(obj);
Page 127 of 191

COREJAVA
//give names to threads t1.setName(First Person); t2.setName(Second Person); //run the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); } } ThreadSynchronization(or) Synchronization: - Synchronization is locking the object, so that when a thread is processing object any other thread will not be allowed to act upon the object. Synchronized object is also called as Mutex i.e. Mutually Exclusive lock. An object can be synchronized in two ways 1. Synchronizedblock(): synchronized(obj) { For group of statements we can use this synchronized statements; block. } Ex: - class BlockLevel{ //shared among threads SharedResource x, y ; //dummy objects for locking Object xLock = new Object(), yLock = new Object(); pubic void method1() { synchronized(xLock){ //access x here. thread safe } //do something here but don't use SharedResource x, y ; synchronized(xLock){ synchronized(yLock){ //access x,y here. thread safe } } //do something here but don't use SharedResource x, y ; } } 2. By making a method as synchronized method synchronized void method() { For entire method to synchronized we will use statements; this method. } Ex: class MethodLevel{ //shared among threads SharedResource x, y ; pubic void synchronized method1() { //multiple threads can't access } pubic void synchronized method2() { //multiple threads can't access } public void method3() { //not synchronized //multiple threads can access } }
Page 128 of 191

COREJAVA
Synchronizationimportant: - 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 objects value. This often causes dirty data and leads to significant errors. Disadvantageof synchronizationis that it can cause deadlocks when two threads are waiting on each other to do something. Also synchronized code has the overhead of acquiring lock, which can adversely the performance. Synchronization is also known as thread safe, unsynchronized is also known as thread unsafe. Locking means it will not allow another thread still the completion of one task of one thread. Ex: //To cancel the ticket Class CancelTicket extends Thread { object train, comp; CancelTicket(object train, object comp) Thread 1 CancelTicket { this.train = train; this.comp = comp; 100ms comp.obj } public void run() { synchronized(comp) { System.out.println(CancelTicket locked the train.obj 200ms compartment); try{ sleep(100); BookTicket Thread 2 }catch(InterruptedException ie){ } System.out.println(CancelTicket wants to lock on train); synchronized(train) { System.out.println(CancelTicket now locked train); } } } } class BookTicket extends Thread { object train, comp; BookTicket(object train, object comp) { this.train = train; this.comp = comp; } public void run() { synchronized(train) { System.out.println(BookTicket locked the train); try{ sleep(200); }catch(InterruptedException ie){ } System.out.println(BookTicket wants to lock on compartmet); synchronized(comp) { System.out.println(BookTicket now locked compartment); } } }

Output:CancelTicket locked the Compartment BookTicket locked the Train CancelTicket wants to lock on train BookTicket wants to lock the Compartment Press Ctrl+c for forcibly to terminate the program, because to solve this program in another way. Ex: //To cancel the ticket Solution for dead lock Class CancelTicket extends Thread { object train, comp; CancelTicket(object train, object comp); Locking { Solution for this.train = train; DeadLock Changing this.comp = comp; direction of thread 2 } public void run() { Thread 2 synchronized(comp) Thread 1 BookTicket { CancelTicket System.out.println(CancelTicket locked the compartment); try{ comp.obj 100ms sleep(100); }catch(InterruptedException ie){ } System.out.println(CancelTicket wants to lock on train); train.obj 200ms synchronized(train) { System.out.println(CancelTicket now locked train); } } } } class BookTicket extends Thread { object train, comp; BookTicket(object train, object comp); { this.train = train;

this.comp = comp; } public void run() { synchronized(comp) { System.out.println(BookTicket locked the Compartment); try{ sleep(200); }catch(InterruptedException ie){ } System.out.println(BookTicket wants to lock on compartmet); synchronized(train) { System.out.println(BookTicket now locked train); } } } } class DeadLock { public static void main(String args[ ]) throws Exception { take train and compartment as objects object train = new object(); object compartment = new object(); //create objects to CancelTicket, BookTicket CancelTicket obj1 = new CancelTicket(train, compartment); BookTicket obj1 = new BookTicket (train, compartment); //create 2 threads and attach them to these objects Thread t1 = new Thread(obj1); Thread t2 = new Thread(obj2); //run the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); } } DeadLock of thread: - When a thread locked an object and waiting for another object which has been already locked by another thread and the other thread is also waiting for the first object it leads to DeadLock situation. In DeadLock both the threads mutually keep under waiting forever and further processing is canceled. A programmer should avoid DeadLock situations in his program by properly planning designing the program. ThreadClassMethods:1. To know the currently running thread. Thread t = Thread.currentThread(); 2. To start thread t.start(); 3. To stop execution of a thread for a specified time Thread.sleep(milliseconds); 4. To get the name of a thread String name = t.getName(); 5. To set a new to a thread t.setName(name); 6. To get the priority of a thread int priority_no = t.getPriority(); 7. To set the priority of a thread

COREJAVA
t.setPriority(int priority_no); Note: - The priority number constants are as given below Thread.MAX_PRIORITY value is 10 Thread.MIN_PRIORITY value is 0 Thread.NORM_PRIORITY value is 5 8. To test if a thread is still alive t.isAlive(); returns true/false 9. To wait till a thread dies t.join(); 10. To send a notification to awaiting thread obj.notify(); 11. To send notification to all waiting threads obj.notifyAll(); 12. To wait till the obj is released (till notification is sent) obj.wait(); notify() method will sends a notification to a thread, i.e. some object is available to the thread. The above three methods (10, 11, 12) are belong to object class. Q) Whatis the differencebetweenGreenthreadand Nativethread?***** Ans:- A program thread uses two types of operating system threads, they are Green Thread model and Native Thread model. Green Thread model will provide only one thread for a program thread, where as Native Thread provides a separate thread for each program thread. Ex: //Thread Communication Class Communicate { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //create Producer, Consumer, objects Producer obj1 = new Producer(); Consumer obj2 = new Consumer(obj1); //create 2 threads and attach them obj1, obj2 Thread t1 = new Thread(obj1); Thread t2 = new Thread(obj2); //run the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); } } class Producer extends Thread { Boolean dataprodover = false; // dataprodove is a data production over SrtingBuffer sb; producer() { 1 sb = new StringBuffer(); Data Provider 2 } true 3 public void run() { for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++) { try 10 { sb.append(i+:); Consumer sleep(100); Producer

} dataprodover = true; } } class Consumer extends Thread { Producer prod; Consumer(Producer prod) { this.prod = prod; } public void run() { try{ while(!prod.dataprodover) { sleep(10); } }catch(Exception e){ } System.out.println(prob.sb); } } Save it as communication.java. This above program/method is not efficient way to communication between threads. If we want communicate efficient way we have to use notify() method. Ex: //Thread communication in efficient way Class Communicate { public static void main(String args[ ]) { //create Producer, Consumer, objects Producer obj1 = new Producer(); Consumer obj2 = new Consumer(obj1); //create 2 threads and attach them obj1, obj2 Thread t1 = new Thread(obj1); Thread t2 = new Thread(obj2); //run the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); } } class Producer extends Thread { 1 SrtingBuffer sb; Data Provider producer() 2 true { 3 sb = new StringBuffer(); } public void run() { synchronized() 10 { for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++) Consumer Producer { try { sb.append(i+:); sleep(100);

System.out.println(appending); } catch(Exception e){ } } sn.notify(); } // or we can use sb.notifyAll();

} } class Consumer extends Thread { Producer prod; Consumer(Producer prod) { this.prod = prod; } public void run() { synchronized(prod.sb) { try{ prod.wait(); }catch(Exception e){ } System.out.println(prod.sb); } } } Q) Whatis the differencebetweensleep()methodand wait() method?***** Ans:- Both methods will make the thread wait for some time. When the thread comes out of sleep() method the object may be still lock. When the threads comes out of the wait() method the object is automatically unlocked. But both methods will wait temporarily. Ex: synchronized(obj) synchronized(obj) { { ------------------------------------------locked locked ------------------------------------------sleep(2000); wait(2000); ------------------------------------------Unlocked locked ------------------------------------------} } Whatare differenttypesof threads:1. User thread or Main thread. 2. Daemon thread 3. GUI thread Q) Whatis Daemonthread?***** Ans:- A Daemon thread is a thread that continuously provides services to other threads i.e. Daemon thread are used for background services. Ex: To start mysql F:\rnr>mysqld Here d is the Daemon thread. F:\rnr> Now onwards Daemon thread makes the mysql database running continuously. Daemon threads are generally used background services.

Q) Whatis threadlife cycle?***** Ans:- Life cycle of thread means from the creation of thread till its termination. The states assumed by the thread are called life cycle of a thread. Start run wait (or) blocked state Destroy State

Life Cycleof Thread

Running Yield New Thread Start Runnable The run method terminates Dead/Terminates
(or)

Not Runnable

sleep() wait() Dead blocked on I/O

Runnable means it will executes public void run methods yield makes pausing the thread. Not Runnable means thread will stop runnable. Afetr executing the all methods by run() method then the thread will be terminated. Runnable: - Waiting for its turn to be picked for execution by the thread schedular based on thread priorities. Running : - The processor is actively executing the thread code. It runs until it becomes blocked, or voluntarily gives up its turn with this static method Thread.yield(). Because of context switching overhead, yield() should not be used very frequently. Waiting : - A thread is in a blockedstate while it waits for some external processing such as file I/O to finish. Sleeping : - Java threads are forcibly put to sleep (suspended) with this overloaded method: Thread.sleep(milliseconds), Thread.sleep(milliseconds, nanoseconds); Blockedon I/O: Will move to runnable after I/O condition like reading bytes of data etc changes. Blockedon synchronization : Will move to Runnable when a lock is acquired.

Dead : The thread is finished working. Whatis the differencebetweenyieldand sleeping?***** Ans:When a task invokes yield(), it changes from running state to runnable state. When a task invokes sleep(), it changes from running state to waiting/sleeping state.

Whatare the statesof thread?***** Ans:- New thread state Runnable Running wait (or) blocked state Destroy State ThreadGroup:- A group of threads as single unit is called ThreadGroup. If we applied certain methods on the ThreadGroup it will effect all other threads. Controlling all the threadsx by giving a single command or method is possible, because of ThreadGroup. ThreadGroup tg = new ThreadGroup(group name); Thread t1 = new Thread(tg, obj, threadname); Here obj is target object Thread t2 = new Thread(tg, obj1, threadname); We can also add one ThreadGroup to another ThreadGroup. ThreadGroup tg1 = new ThreadGroup(tg, group name); Daemon Thread: - Daemon threads are service providers fro other threads or objects. A daemon thread executes continuously. It provides generally a background processing. 1. To make a thread as Daemon thread t.setDaemon(true); 2. To know if a thread is Daemon or not t1 Boolean x = t.isDaemon(); res Ex: /*Using thread groups*/ t2 class WhyTGroups { public static void main(String args[ ]) t3 can throws Exception { t4 Reservation res = new Reservation(); tg1 Cancellation can = new Cancellation(); //create a ThreadGroup with name tg ThreadGroup tg = new ThreadGroup(Reservation Group); //create 2 threads and add them to ThreadGroup Thread t1 = new Thread(tg, res, First thread); Thread t2 = new Thread(tg, res, Second thread); //create another ThreadGroup as a child to tg ThreadGroup tg1 = new ThreadGroup(tg, Cancellation Group); Thread t3 = new Thread(tg1, res, Third thread); Thread t4 = new Thread(tg1, res, Fourth thread); System.out.println(Number of threads in a group = +tg.activeCount()); //Find parent group of tg1 System.out.println(Parent of tg1 = +tg1.getParent()); //set maximum priority to tg1 as 7 tg1.setMaxPriority (7); //know the ThreadGroup of t1 and t2 System.out.println(ThreadGroup of t1 = +t1.getThreadGroup()); System.out.println(ThreadGroup of t2 = +t2.getThreadGroup()); //start the threads t1.start(); t2.start(); t3.start(); t4.start(); } } class Reservation extends Thread

Introduction Graphical User Interface systems handle user interaction using an event driven model. That is, the user performs an action such as moving the mouse, pressing a key or releasing one, etc. These all generate events of some kind. A GUI system such as the Java AWT, Microsoft Windows, Motif, or any other windowing system will sit in an event loop waiting for these events to occur. When one does, application code is called in some way to respond to the event. The way in which application code is called varies between the different windowing systems. In some, the application programmer has to write an event loop handler themselves, and when an event occurs the application has to figure out what to do with it. In other systems some assistance may be given with this, where events are dispatched to graphical objects automatically. When they arrive, application code still has to work out what type of event has occurred. In yet other systems, the application merely needs to register an event handler with an object, and the handler will be called whenever the right event occurs in the right object, without any further need for intervention by the application programmer. Java in release 1.1 is now up to its third event processing model! The first one - called the ``old'' event model was abandoned before Java left beta stage. It was replaced by the ``new'' event model for Java 1.0. Unfortunately, two things marred this transition to the new model: Books had already begun to appear using the old event model, and hardly anyone mentioned the new model. The new model didn't work until JDK 1.0.2, so everyone continued to use the old model anyway.

The difference between the old and new models is subtle and depends on a complex interplay of events that belong to the underlying native implementation and the Java events. This was covered in the Java 1.0 version of this book. Both the old and new models had serious Software Engineering deficiences that led to poor quality code as soon as applications started to grow in scale. A solution to this was already known as the Command Pattern, and this was adopted for the third event model for the Java AWT. The Command Pattern was renamed ``delegation'' by Sun engineers, and forms a much cleaner way of handling events. Basically, it allows the application to register handlers (called listeners) with graphical objects, which are called when suitable events arrive. There are complex implementation layers and issues arising from the third event model. When the user performs an action such as a keypress, a native code event is generated. This is firstly handled by native code at, say, the Windows or X level. The event may be caught by the native toolkit or ignored. If caught, two things may happen:

Page 137 of 191

COREJAVA
The event may be given to the native GUI object and then to the Java object. The event may be given to the Java object and then to the native GUI object.

Which one of these occurs depends on the event type. When an event is handed to the Java layer, it is changed into a Java event. Java code looks to see if there is an event listener using the third event model. If there is, this is used. If there is not, then the second ``new'' event model is used. Sometimes there is no listener but the third model should be used anyway. This can be forced. If all this sounds grim, then be reassured: if you only want to do simple things, the delegation event model lets you do them simply. Most of the time you only want to simple things.

Listeners
A listener is registered with an event type for an object. For example, an application can register a key event listener for any Component, or an action event listener for objects such as Button or TextField. Listeners are where the programmer places application specific code to respond to user events. When a suitable event occurs, an appropriate method on the listener is invoked. For example, suppose we are building a Web browser. We may have a Back button to return to the previously displayed page. When we click on this Back button, the application will need to reload the last page into the browser window and reset history lists, current URL pointers, etc. This is not GUI code, though it is clearly application code that affects GUI objects as well as other application objects of the browser. The Back function can also be invoked in other ways, such as by a hot-key or by menu selection. Not only is the behavior application specific, but there is more than one way way of invoking this behavior. A listener object encapsulates this behavior, and should be registered with the Back button, the hot-key combination and the menu selection. When a listener is invoked, it has to be by one of its methods. There could be a standard method such as execute() or by one customised to the event that caused it. The JDK 1.1 has chosen the second method. So if the mouse is clicked in a Button, then an action event is generated (invisibly to most applications), and theactionPerformed() method is called on any action listener. On the other hand, whenever a key is pressed in a Component, then the method keyPressed() is called in any key event listener. This could have been more simply if simplicity was the only driving force behind this event model: however, Java Beans imposes extra requirements which lead to these multiple event types. The methods defined for listeners are done using interfaces. This is an absolutely appropriate use of the interface mechanism. Since listeners contain application code, they will probably have an inheritance based on the application, not on some vagaries of the GUI side. All the listener needs to do is to implement certain methods, so that the internal event handling code can call the right method. So, for example, the ActionListener is defined by public interface ActionListener extends EventListener { public abstract void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) } whereas KeyListener is defined by public interface KeyListener extends EventListener { public abstract void keyPressed(KeyEvent e); public abstract void keyReleased(KeyEvent e); public abstract void keyTyped(KeyEvent e);
Page 138 of 191

COREJAVA
} Implementing Listeners Since a listener is defined as an interface, any application code inheriting a listener specification must implement its methods. The rest of the listener code is upto the application. Listener methods will usually interact with other objects of the application. Some of these will be GUI objects, some won't. It doesn't really matter. Returning to our browser example, the Back button listener will need to access the URL object to retrieve the previous URL, and the browser display object to show it. One is graphical, the other is not. Listener objects - just like any object - get knowledge about other objects in three ways They create the other objects and store them in local variables. The other objects are passed in by the constructor. The other objects are set by special methods

Here is a trivial application just to show how listeners are created and used. The application has a Button on the left, a Button on the right and a Label in the middle. The left Button has the label ``Left'', and the right one has the label ``Right'' When either Button is pressed, the text showing in the Label is set to either ``Left'' or ``Right'' i.e. the label of the Button pressed. import java.awt.Button; import java.awt.Label; import java.awt.event.ActionListener; /** * This application consists of two Buttons with a Label * between them. When a Button is pressed, its text is * set in the Label * * @author Jan Newmarch */ public class DelegateDemo extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new SimpleEvent().show(); } public DelegateDemo() { // create the GUI objects Button left = new Button("Left"); Button right = new Button("Right"); Label label = new Label("Center"); // set their geometry add(left, "West"); add(right, "East"); add(label, "Center"); pack(); // create a listener and add it to each Button SimpleListener simple = new SetText(label); left.addActionListener(simple); right.addActionListener(simple); } }
Page 139 of 191

COREJAVA
/** * A listener object that is invokded when a Button is activated * It finds the Button's label and sets it in a Label */ class SetText implements ActionListener { private Label label; public SetText(Label l) { // the listener needs to know the Label it will act on label = l; } public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent e) { // get the label showing in whichever Button was pressed String name = e.getActionCommand(); // set this in the Label object label.setText(name); } }

AWTEvent
Events that are handled by delegation objects are all subclassed from AWTEvent. If you are familiar with the old or new event models, then you will have used theEvent class in your event handling code. Forget about that class now. It is superceded by AWTEvent. Forget also about all the fields and values that are present inEvent - they are all absent from AWTEvent. The class AWTEvent has only one field, id, and that is protected anyway. The AWTEvent is very simple, and you don't even need to look at it unless you are doing arcane things (which we will do later). For each type of event that is present in the delegation model, there is a separate class. The classes are divided into two types: low-level input or window events that every GUI object receives, and higher-level semantic events that only have meaning for particular GUI objects. In addition there are low-level window events that are only received by Frame and Dialog. This kind of division of types is not captured anywhere in the language, rather it is a guide to the programmer. The low-level events for any Component are Table 1: Low-level Event Types Class id ComponentEvent COMPONENT_MOVED COMPONENT_RESIZED COMPONENT_SHOWN COMPONENT_HIDDEN FocusEvent FOCUS_GAINED FOCUS_LOST KeyEvent KEY_PRESSED KEY_RELEASED
Page 140 of 191

COREJAVA
MouseEvent KEY_TYPED MOUSE_CLICKED MOUSE_DRAGGED MOUSE_ENTERED MOUSE_EXITED MOUSE_MOVED MOUSE_PRESSED MOUSE_RELEASED

Where are PaintEvent.PAINT etc? The low-level window events for Frame and Dialog are Table 2: Low-level Window Event Types Class id WindowEvent WINDOW_CLOSED WINDOW_CLOSING WINDOW_DEICONIFIED WINDOW_ICONIFIED WINDOW_OPENED The semantic level events are Table 3: Semantic Event Types Class Id ActionEvent ACTION_PERFORMED AdjustmentEvent ADJUST_VALUE_CHANGED ItemEvent ITEM_STATE_CHANGED For the low-level events, the protected id takes on different values to distinguish between the type of event. This value can be found from the event methodgetId(). For the semantic level events, there is only one value for id, so that although getId() will give a value, it isn't really very useful (unless you have subclassed one of these semantic events and have your own extra id values). These values are used by the AWT to call appropriate methods on listeners, and you do not usually need to look at these values. The semantic events are generated by the following Table 3: Semantic Event Generation Event Object Action ActionEvent Button Click on Button List Double-click on an item MenuItem Click on MenuItem TextField Press <Enter> key AdjustmentEvent Scrollbar Any Scrollbar action ItemEvent Choice Select an item List Select or deselect an item Checkbox ??? CheckboxMenuItem ??? Listeners for Different Events For each event type that can occur, the application can add event listeners, that have methods invoked when the event occurs. The listeners are defined asinterfaces, so that an actual listener has to
Page 141 of 191

COREJAVA
implement these methods. The names of the listener classes are simply derived from the names of the events they handle, except that MouseEvent's have two different types of listener for efficiency reasons. Table 4: Listeners for Each Event Event Listener Method ActionEvent ActionListener actionPerformed() AdjustmentEvent AdjustmentListener adjustmentValueChanged() ComponentEvent ComponentListener componentResized() componentMoved() componentShown() componentHidden() FocusEvent FocusListener focusGained() focusLost() ItemEvent ItemListener itemStateChanged() KeyEvent KeyListener keyTyped() keyPressed() keyReleased() MouseEvent MouseListener mouseClicked() mouseEntered() mouseExited() mousePressed() mouseReleased() MouseMotionListener mouseDragged() mouseMoved() WindowEvent WindowListener windowClosed() windowClosing() windowDeiconified() windowIconified() windowOpened() The elements of this table should be interpreted as follows: An ActionListener has been registered with, say, a Button. When the Button is clicked, the method actionPerformed() of the ActionListener will be called with a single parameter: the ActionEvent that was generated. A KeyListener may be registered for key events with, say, a TextField. When a key is pressed, the method keyPressed() of the KeyListener will be called with the KeyEvent as parameter. When the key is released, the method keyReleased() will be called with a different KeyEvent as parameter, and also, because a key has been pressed and released (i.e. it has been typed), the method keyTyped() is called with a third KeyEvent as parameter. Two types of listener may be registered for mouse events: this represents a tradeoff between consistency and efficiency. Consistency would have one mouse listener only. This would cause event tracking for all of the different mouse events. However, tracking mouse motion is costly: many events are generated as the user moves the mouse around. In network systems such as X Windows, this can often swamp the available bandwidth leading to visible delays in mouse tracking. Since many GUI objects might be interested in mouse clicks but not mouse motion, using two separate listeners improves efficiency.

RegisteringListeners
A listener implements one of the interfaces ActionListener, AdjustmentListener, etc. Once created, listeners are registered with GUI objects. Of course, the GUI object has to be capable of generating the right type of event for the listener. Listeners are added to each object by a suitable add<event>Listener() call. In the simple example we had earlier, this was done for an ActionEvent listener on a Button by
Page 142 of 191

COREJAVA
SimpleListener simple = new SimpleListener(label); left.addActionListener(simple); The following table lists which objects can have which listener types added: Table 5: Objects and Listeners for Them GUI Object Listener Button ActionListener Choice ItemListener Checkbox ItemListener Component ComponentListener FocusListener KeyListener MouseListener MouseMotionListener Dialog WindowListener Frame WindowListener List ActionListener ItemListener MenuItem ActionListener Scrollbar AdjustmentListener TextField ActionListener Note that every GUI object inherits from Component. So every object can have Component, Focus, Key, Mouse and MouseMotion listeners added. The next sections look at each event type in turn.

ActionEvents
Action events are generated for the following objects: Table 6: Objects generating Action Events GUI Object Action Button Click on Button List Double-click on an item MenuItem Click on MenuItem TextField Press <Enter> key An ActionListener can be registered with each of these objects, and its method actionPerformed() is called when the user performs the indicated activity. An ActionEvent has two methods that the programmer may find to be of use: public String getActionCommand() public int getModifiers() Each ActionEvent carries around an ``action command''. This command may be set by the Button or MenuItem by their setActionCommand(String) method. There is no such method for List or TextField. The value of the action command (unless reset) is Table 7: Value of Action Command GUI Object action command Button label List ??? MenuItem label TextField ???

Page 143 of 191

COREJAVA
The action command gives runtime information about the context in which the event occurred. This is semantic-level information, rather than low-level information: the text showing in the Button is usually enough useful information. If low-level information is required, the source object can be obtained from the methodgetSource() (or equivalent methods). This method is inherited by every event from the superior class java.util.EventObject. We shall illustrate use of action events by four programs which do basically the same thing, but use different GUI elements to do this. The common part of these will be a Label which can have its foreground color set to different values. The color can be selected in different ways for each program, but they will all invoke the sameActionListener. This ActionListener is defined by the following: import java.awt.Component; import java.awt.Color; import java.awt.event.ActionListener; /** * An ActionListener that changes the foreground * color of a component passed in by the constructor * * @author Jan Newmarch */ public class SetColor implements ActionListener { final Color colors[] = {Color.red, Color.blue, Color.green}; final String colorLabels[] = {"red", "blue", "green"}; private Component comp; public SetColor(Component c) { comp = c; } /** * Invoked by an action event somewhere * resets the foreground of a component passed * in to the constructor */ public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) { String colorName = e.getActionCommand(); // search for Color matching color name for (n = 0; n < colorLabels.length; n++) { if (colorLabels[n].equals(colorName)) { // found a match, set foreground comp.setForeground(colors[n]); return; } } System.out.println("Unknown color: " + colorName); } } The first program to use this has a row of three buttons along the top and a label to below them. A single SetColor listener will be created and registered with each button. The application looks like

The code is
Page 144 of 191

COREJAVA
import java.awt.*; import SetColor; public class ButtonColor extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new ButtonColor().show(); } public ButtonColor() { // the label that will be colored Label label = new Label("Click on button to change color"); // a panel to hold the buttons Panel panel = new Panel(); // buttons for each color Button red = new Button("red"); Button blue = new Button("blue"); Button green = new Button("green"); // set geometry panel.setLayout(new FlowLayout()); panel.add(red); panel.add(blue); panel.add(green); add(panel, "North"); add(label, "Center"); pack(); // add the listener SetColor sc = new SetColor(label); red.addActionListener(sc); blue.addActionListener(sc); green.addActionListener(sc); } } The second program to use the SetColor listener will just change elements of the user interface. That is, instead of a set of buttons, it will use a list to the left of the label. In this version we shall only implement the double-click action, leaving single-click till later (that uses a different type of event). The application looks like

The code is import java.awt.*; import SetColor; public class ListColor extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new ListColor().show(); } public ListColor() { // the label that will be colored
Page 145 of 191

COREJAVA
Label label = new Label("Double-click to change color"); // the list of colors List colors = new List(3); colors.add("red"); colors.add("blue"); colors.add("green"); // set geometry add(colors, "West"); add(label, "Center"); pack(); // add the listener SetColor sc = new SetColor(label); colors.addActionListener(sc); } } Note that we have not changed the application code at all, only the GUI code. In this we are partly lucky since we are handling the same event type in both programs, but even handling different types does not cause many changes. The third program will make the same kind of change. This time we shall use a menu of colors to make the selection. Each item in the menu will have the same listener added, just as for the buttons in the first program. The application looks like

The code is import java.awt.*; import SetColor; public class MenuColor extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new MenuColor().show(); } public MenuColor() { // the label that will be colored Label label = new Label("Select color from menu"); // the menu bar MenuBar mb = new MenuBar(); Menu color = new Menu("Color"); mb.add(color); // menu color items MenuItem red = new MenuItem("red"); MenuItem blue = new MenuItem("blue"); MenuItem green = new MenuItem("green"); color.add(red); color.add(blue); color.add(green);
Page 146 of 191

COREJAVA
// set the geometry setMenuBar(mb); add(label, "Center"); pack(); // add the listener SetColor sc = new SetColor(label); red.addActionListener(sc); blue.addActionListener(sc); green.addActionListener(sc); } } Again there is no change to the application code. The last example gives the last variation on this theme, using a TextField for color selection. The application looks like

The code is import java.awt.*; import SetColor; public class TextFieldColor extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new TextFieldColor().show(); } public TextFieldColor() { // the label that will be colored Label label = new Label("Enter color in the TextField"); // the text field to enter the color TextField text = new TextField(20); // set geometry add(text, "North"); add(label, "Center"); pack(); // add the listener SetColor sc = new SetColor(label); text.addActionListener(sc); } } This last piece of code is rather lacking in ease of use, as it gives no clues as to what are allowable text values!

AdjustmentEvents

Page 147 of 191

COREJAVA
Adjustment events are only generated for objects of class Scrollbar in Java 1.1. There is not so much need to use this class in Java 1.1, as there is also aScrollPane class which looks after most details of handling a viewport onto a component. A listener of class AdjustmentListener is added to a Scrollbar by the method public void addAdjustmentListener(AdjustmentListener) The user can interact with the scrollbar by clicking the mouse within it, by dragging the slider or by keyboard interaction such as the arrow keys or PageUp/PageDown keys. These all cause the method public void adjustmentValueChanged(AdjustmentEvent) to be called in the listener. There is only the one method called despite the variety of ways that the user can interact with the scrollbar. If the application needs to distinguish between these, it can call the method getAdjustmentType() on the AdjustmentEvent. This will return one of the four values UNIT_INCREMENT - down one ``line'' UNIT_DECREMENT - up one ``line'' BLOCK_INCREMENT - down one ``page'' BLOCK_DECREMENT - up one ``page''

The actual value of the scrollbar can be found from the method getValue() of the AdjustmentEvent. To use this value, you need to know where on the scale from minimum to maximum it occurs. These - and much other information - are available from the event of class Adjustable in which the event occurred (right now we know this is a Scrollbar but it could be other things in the future - for example, a Scale object). Component Events Most applications will not need to use events of type ComponentEvent. This is used for tracking movement, resizing and visibility. An application will generally function perfectly well by ignoring these events: the AWT toolkit will look after things such as calling layout managers on resize. There are occasions when an application may want to track such events. For example, a visually intensive piece of graphics such as animation should cease when the display object becomes invisible, so it will want to track visibility changes. A ``smart'' text display may want to change the size of the font used according to the amount of space it has, so it will want to track size changes. An application wanting to track such changes registers a listener that implements ComponentListener. This interface defines four methods that the listener must implement: public void componentHidden(ComponentEvent); public void componentMoved(ComponentEvent); public void componentResized(ComponentEvent); public void componentShown(ComponentEvent); In objects of class ComponentEvent the id is used field to distinguish between four types: COMPONENT_HIDDEN, COMPONENT_MOVED, COMPONENT_RESIZED andCOMPONENT_ SHOWN. The AWT uses this value to select which of the four listener methods to call, so you are unlikely to need to look at this field. The ComponentEvent class supplies a method public Component getComponent() if you need to determine which component has called the listener. Here is a program to track resize and movement events on the toplevel Frame:
Page 148 of 191

COREJAVA
import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.ComponentEvent; public class TrackResize extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new TrackResize().show(); } public TrackResize() { Label label = new Label(); add(label); pack(); addComponentListener(new Tracker(label)); } } class Tracker implements ComponentListener { private Label label; Tracker(Label l) { label = l; } public void componentHidden(ComponentEvent e) { // empty } public void componentMoved(ComponentEvent e) { showGeometry(e); } public void componentResized(ComponentEvent e) { showGeometry(e); } public void componentShown(ComponentEvent e) { // empty } private void showGeometry(ComponentEvent e) { Component c = e.getComponent(); Dimension d = c.getSize(); Point p = c.getLocation(); label.setText("Position: (" + p.x + "," + p.y + ") Size: (" + d.width + "," + d.height + ")"); } } The Tracker class inherits only from Object. Because it has to implement all of the ComponentListener interface it ends up with empty implementations of thecomponentHidden() and componentShown() methods. This may become mildly annoying if it had to be done frequently, so there is a ``convenience'' classComponentAdaptor which defines all these methods as empty ones. Using this, you can inherit from ComponentAdaptor and then just override the

Page 149 of 191

COREJAVA
methods you need. The single inheritance model of Java does of course then require that the listener cannot also inherit from other classes, so this may be of limited value.

FocusEvents
Applications are unlikely to need to track focus events, as the AWT toolkit looks after most aspects of focus changes. If you need to, you can add a focus change listener by AddFocusListener(). The listener must then implement the methods public void focusGained(FocusEvent); public void focusLost(FocusEvent); There are no extra methods for handling these events. Item Events Item events are generated for the following objects: Table 8: Objects generating Item Events GUI Object Action Choice Click on item Checkbox Select an item Deselect an item List Select an item Deselect an item Extend a selection Reduce a selection An application wanting to follow selection changes registers an object that implements ItemListener. When such a change occurs, it will have the methoditemStateChanged() called with an ItemEvent as parameter. Item event handling appears to be incomplete in Java 1.1 beta. The ItemEvent declares methods ItemSelectable getItemSelectable(); Object getItem(); The interface ItemSelectable declares methods interface ItemSelectable { int[] getSelectedIndexes(); String[] getSelectitems(); Presently, the classes that implement the ItemSelectable interface are List, Choice and Checkbox. Now consider the information we would be after when an item in a list is selected: the index and the string showing. The index is given by the getItem() of theItemEvent, but it has to be coerced to class Integer first. The actual string is not obtainable from the information given. The method getItemSelectable()returns the item that the selection was performed on - the list. From there you can find the set of all selected items (which may be more than one), but not the single list item that changed state. To get at that, you have to check and then coerce the ItemSelectable to class List and then use the List method getItem() to find the string selected. // import java.awt.Label; import java.awt.Color; import java.awt.Component; // import java.awt.Frame; import java.awt.event.ItemListener; import java.awt.event.ItemEvent; /** * An ItemListener that changes the foreground

colors.addItemListener(sc); } }

KeyEvents
Key events may be generated for all components. They count as ``low level'' events for most objects, but of course for TextArea and TextField they really have semantic content. For other classes keyboard events are most likely to be use in implementing keyboard traversal mechanisms, such as the use of arrow keys to move around a grid of labels, or of the tab key to move between objects. Key events also have an important property not shared with most other event types, and that is they can be changed by the application. For example, the application may change any text typed to lower case by mapping any upper case characters entered into lower case. A KeyEvent defines a large number of constants for the special keys on the keyboard. These are known as action keys and are given in this table: Table 9: Action Keys END PGUP DOWN LEFT PRINT_SCREEN SCROLL_LOCK PAUSE INSERT TAB ESCAPE

HOME UP F1 - F12 NUM_LOCK BACK_SPACE

PGDN RIGHT CAPS_LOCK ENTER DELETE

These can be tested by code such as KeyEvent e; ... if (e.isActionKey()) { switch (e.getKeyCode()) { case KeyEvent.HOME: ... case KeyEvent.END: ... case KeyEvent.PGUP: ... ... } } There are related methods inherited from InputEvent, the super class of KeyEvent. These allow tests for the modifier keys: public boolean isShiftDown(); public boolean isControlDown(); public boolean isMetaDown(); The information from these can also be obtained from the method getModifiers(), and then comparing this to InputEvent.CTRL_MASK, etc. import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.KeyListener; public class ShowKey extends Frame { public static void main(String argv[]) { new ShowKey().show(); } public ShowKey() {

JAVAAPPLETS
What Is an Applet? Java applets are special kind of Java programs that run when embedded in a Java enabled Web browser or a specialized tool such as appletviewer. The Web browser supplies the framework for retrieving and loading an applet and also supplies the main window holding the applet. A Java application does not require any additional software, such as a Web browser, other than the typical Java runtime files included in the Java Developer's Kit. Java applications are designed to be run in standalone mode on a client machine and therefore can be thought of as a known entity. Java applets, meanwhile, can be loaded from anywhere on the Internet, and therefore are subject to severe security restrictions. Java applets currently are being used for advertising purposes because they provide the capability to include simple animation and sound in a Web advertisement. Many client/server developers currently are looking at the company intranet as an excellent platform on which to finally deliver true cross-platform corporate applications. Because of this, Java applets are certain to quickly progress from "neat" status to true business use status. What Is Required to Run an Applet? Java applets are typically run within a Web browser. The popular Web browsers on the market support embedded Java applets in HTML pages. These browsers include:

COREJAVA
Sun HotJava 1.0 Netscape Navigator 2.0 (or greater) Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 Oracle PowerBrowser 1.5 The Applet Viewer tool included with the Java Developer's Kit can be used to test and run Java applets as well. What Can an Applet Do? An applet can: Draw pictures on a web page Create a new window and draw in it. Play sounds. Receive input from the user through the keyboard or the mouse. Make a network connection to the server from which it came and can send to and receive arbitrary data from that server. An applet cannot: Write data on any of the host's disks. Read any data from the host's disks without the user's permission. In some environments, notably Netscape, an applet cannot read data from the user's disks even with permission. Delete files Read from or write to arbitrary blocks of memory, even on a non-memory-protected operating system like the MacOS. All memory access is strictly controlled. Make a network connection to a host on the Internet other than the one from which it was downloaded. Call the native API directly (though Java API calls may eventually lead back to native API calls). Introduce a virus or trojan horse into the host system. An applet is not supposed to be able to crash the host system. However in practice Java isn't quite stable enough to make this claim yet. Building a Java Applet The java.applet package contains standard framework for developing applets. To run an applet an HTML file with appropriate information about the applets class file must be provided. The main() method which is necessary for executing standalone applications is not necessary for running applets. There are restriction on what an applet is allowed to do. An applet is implemented by creating a subclass of the Applet class and overriding the appropriate methods to customize the running of the applet. GUI components and containers can be embedded in an applet to build a GUI for the applet. APPLET LIFE CYCLE Each applet has four major events in its lifetime: Initialization Starting Stopping Destroying These four events correspond directly to four methods within the Applet class: init(), start(), stop(), and destroy(). The following discussion provides some information on each of these methods. public void init() The init() method is called when the applet is initially loaded. This method is used to do one-time setup features such as add components to the layout manager, set screen colors, and connect to a host database. public void start() The start() method is called after the applet has been initialized, and also each time the applet is restarted after being stopped. Applets can be stopped when the user changes to another Web page. If the user returns at a later time to the page with the
Page 154 of 191

COREJAVA
applet on it, the applet will be restarted by the browser. Therefore, the start() method can be called many times during an applet's life cycle. Common operations that occur during an applet's start() method are the initialization of threads within the applet and the updating of the screen display. public void stop() The stop() method is called whenever the user leaves the current page. The stop() method is used to temporarily suspend the execution of the applet until the start() method is called again. public void destroy() The destroy() method is called whenever it is time to completely finish the applet's execution. This method is generally called when the browser is exiting or the applet is being reloaded from the host server. The destroy() method is used to free up allocated resources such as threads or database connections. The program below shows a simple applet that implements all four life cycle methods: init(), start(), stop(), and destroy(). This applet updates the screen as well as the browser status bar with some information indicating which method is being called. An applet illustrating the life cycle methods. import java.awt.Graphics; import java.awt.Font; import java.awt.Color; public class LifeCycleApplet extends java.applet.Applet { Font theFont = new Font("Helvetica", Font.BOLD, 20); int i; String String1, String2; public void paint(Graphics g) { g.setFont(theFont); g.setColor(Color.blue); g.drawString(String1 + String2, 5, 30); } public void init() { i = 0; String1 = ""; String2 = "The applet is initializing!"; repaint(); showStatus("The applet is initializing!"); } public void start() { i = 1; String1 = String2; String2 = "The applet is starting!"; repaint(); showStatus("The applet is starting!"); } public void stop() { i = 2; String1 = String2; String2 = "The applet is stopping!"; repaint(); showStatus("The applet is stopping!"); } public void destroy()
Page 155 of 191

COREJAVA
{ i = 3; String1 = String2; String2 = "The applet is being destroyed!"; repaint(); showStatus("The applet is being destroyed!");

} } HTML and Java Applets Inorder to run an applet and HTML file with appropriate information about the applets class file must be provided. The <APPLET> tag-Used to represent a Java applet to be loaded. The <APPLET> Tag The syntax for using the <APPLET> tag is the following: <APPLET attributes> applet_parameters alternate_content </APPLET> The APPLET attributes are standard values that all applets accept and are a standard part of HTML. The applet_parameters are applet-specific parameters that are read by the applet at runtime. This is a handy way of passing arguments to an applet to allow the applet to be more generic. <APPLET> Tag Attributes ALT-Alternate text that can be displayed by text-only browsers. ALIGN-The ALIGN attribute designates the alignment of the applet within the browser page. CODE-(Required) The CODE attribute is used to indicate the .class file that loads the applet. CODEBASE-The CODEBASE attribute is used to indicate the location of the .class file that loads the applet. HEIGHT-(Required) The HEIGHT attribute is used to set the applet's bounding rectangle height. HSPACE-The HSPACE attribute sets the amount of horizontal space to set off around the applet. NAME-The NAME attribute sets the symbolic name of the applet. VSPACE-The VSPACE attribute sets the amount of vertical space to set off around the applet. WIDTH-(Required) The WIDTH attribute is used to set the applet's box width. The LifeCycle.html file contents. <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>This is the LifeCycle applet!</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> <H1>Life Cycle of Applet </H1> <BR> <APPLET CODE="LifeCycleApplet.class" WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=50> </APPLET> </BODY> </HTML> public void paint() The paint() method is called by the system when the applet needs to be drawn. The definition of this method must have the form: public void paint(Graphics g) { // draw some stuff }

Page 156 of 191

COREJAVA
The parameter g, of type Graphics, is provided by the system when it calls the paint() method. In Java, all drawing of any kind is done using methods provided by a Graphics object. The paint() method of an applet does not, by the way, draw GUI components such as buttons and text input boxes that the applet might contain. Such GUI components are objects in their own right, defined by other classes. The applet's paint() method is called by the system as soon as the applet appears on the screen. But it can also be called at other times. It is called whenever the contents of the applet need to be redrawn. This might happen if the applet is covered up by another window and is then uncovered. It can happen when you scroll the window of a browser, and the applet scrolls into view. And, it is especially important to note, the applet's paint() method can be called because the program makes a request for the applet to be redrawn. Such requests are made by calling a method named repaint().

Passing Parameters to Java Applets Parameters are an easy way to configure Java applets without actually changing the source file. In the previous applet example, the text drawn on the screen was drawn using the blue color. This can be done by passing a parameter to the applet specifying that it use the blue tag. Passing parameters to the applet using HTML parameters. <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>This is the LifeCycle applet!</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> <H1> Life Cycle of Applet </H1> <BR> <APPLET CODE="LifeCycleApplet.class" WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=50> <PARAM NAME=color VALUE="blue"> </APPLET> </BODY> </HTML> How does the Java applet determine the value of the parameters? The applet has to call the getParameter() method supplied by the java.applet.Applet parent class. Calling getParameter("color") using the previous Java applet example would return a String value containing the text "blue". It is then left up to the applet to take advantage of this information and actually paint the text blue on the screen. Here are three methods commonly used by applets: String getParameter(String name)-Returns the value for the specified parameter string URL getCodeBase()-Returns the URL of the applet URL getDocumentBase()-Returns the URL of the document containing the applet

Page 157 of 191

COREJAVA
Example import java.applet.*; import java.awt.*; public class AppletParam extends java.applet.Applet {

String input_from_page ; public void init() { input_from_page=getParameter("string"); if (input_from_page==null) input_from_page="Java"; input_from_page="Hello "+ str;

} public void paint(Graphics g) { g.drawString(str,10, 100); } }

HTML FILE <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>Applet HTML Page</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> <H3Applet HTML Page</H3> <P> <APPLET code=" AppletParam.class" width=350 height=200> <PARAM NAME="string" VALUE="Applet"> </APPLET> </P>

<HR WIDTH="100%"><FONT SIZE=-1><I>Generated by NetBeans IDE</I></FONT> </BODY> </HTML>

The PARAM HTML tag occurs between <APPLET> and </APPLET>. It has two parameters of its own, NAME and VALUE. The NAME identifies which parameter this is for the getParameter method. VALUE is the value of the parameter as a String. Both must be enclosed in double quote marks like all other HTML tag parameters.

COREJAVA
TextField theText; List theList; Button theButton; public void init() { theText = new TextField(); theList = new List(); theButton = new Button("Add text to list!"); add(theText); add(theList); add(theButton);

} } Adding components to applets Applets can be used as a container for visual components, such as those provided by the java.awt package. Components are created, and then added to the applet container. The positioning of applet components is controlled by a layout manager. Layout managers There are several different layout managers, and you can even write your own if so inclined. The easiest layout manager is the FlowLayout, which adds components on a first-come, first-served manner. Applets that use a flow layout will allow components to flow freely from left to right, top to bottom, and can handle different applet sizes.

Example of FlowLayout, with different applet sizes For more specialised layout, you could use a GridLayout manager, or a BorderLayout manager. GridLayouts allow you to place applets in a grid format, and BorderLayouts allow you to specify a general direction.

North West Centre South BorderLayout directions As an example, here is a code snippet using a BorderLayout, which creates a text area with a button to its right. // Set layout manager to flow layout setLayout(new BorderLayout());

// Add three components to applet add(new TextArea(5,5), "North"); add(new Button("Ok"), "East");

AWTCOMPONENTS
There are a wide variety of AWT components, ranging from text labels and buttons to selection lists, windows and dialogs. A selection of more common components from the java.awt package is presented below, along with a sample applet to demonstrate each component's use.

Label
Labels are great for providing user prompts, and for displaying information that should not be modified by users. If you want to have modifiable labels, consider using text fields instead. In almost all of the examples presented here, a status bar containing a label is used to convey information to the user.

Button
Buttons are useful when an application must recieve specific instructions from the user before proceeding. For example, when a user must enter data, and then wants to perform a task, a button can be used to instruct the applet / application to proceed when the data entry is complete.
click here

Example Source public class ButtonApplet extends Applet { Button button; String msg; public void init() { button= new Button("click here"); add(button); }

Choice
Choice components take up very little screen space, and can present the user with a series of choice from which a single selection can be made

Example Source import java.applet.*; public class ChoiceApplet extends Applet { public void init() { Choice pizzaChoice=new Choice(); pizzaChoice.add("Large Pizza"); pizzaChoice.add("Medium Pizza"); pizzaChoice.add("Small Pizza"); add(pizzaChoice); pizzaChoice.select("Medium Pizza"); }
Page 161 of 191

COREJAVA
}

Page 162 of 191

COREJAVA TextField
Textfield components are useful for obtaining short pieces of information from users. They are limited to single line input (for multiple lines, use a TextArea instead).
Go ahead and Type

Example Source import java.awt.*; import java.applet.*; public class TextFieldApplet extends java.applet.Applet { public void init(){ TextField text=new TextField(18); text.setFont(new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN,12)); text.setText("Go ahead and Type "); add(text); } }

List
List components fulfill much the same functionality as choice components. Items can be added, and the currently selected item can be returned. However, they take up more space than a choice component. This can be useful at times, however, as the items can be presented to the user, without he or she having to actually click on the component to see. Furthermore, multiple selections are allowable with the list component (though this feature must be enabled).

import java.applet.*; import java.awt.*; public class ListApplet extends java.applet.Applet { public void init() { String fruit[]={"Mango","Pineapple","Banana","PawPaw"}; List fruitlist=new List(fruit.length-1,true); for(int i=0;i<fruit.length;i++) fruitlist.add(fruit[i]); add(fruitlist); } }

TextArea
Textarea components are useful for getting a large amount of data from a user, or for displaying a large amount of data that is free to be modified. They take up more screen real estate than textfields, but can conserve quite a lot of room because they have support for scrollbars.

COREJAVA

import java.awt.*; import java.applet.*; public class TextAreaApplet extends java.applet.Applet { public void init() { TextArea display=new TextArea(10,6); display.setFont(new Font("Monospaced",Font.PLAIN,12)); display.setText(" This is a test and interesting too"); display.setEditable(false); add(display); } }

CheckBox Medium Pizza

Large Pizza

Small Pizza

Example Source public class CheckboxApplet extends java.applet.Applet implements ItemListener{ String msg; Checkbox option1; Checkbox option2; Checkbox option3; public void init() { option1 = new Checkbox("Large Pizza"); option2 = new Checkbox("Medium Pizza"); option3 = new Checkbox("Small Pizza"); option1.setState(true); add(option1); add(option2); add(option3); }

ThreadingApplets
Applets are embeddable Java applications that are expected to be able to start and stop themselves on command. Unlike threads, applets can be started and stopped any number of times. A Java-enabled Web browser normally starts an applet when the applet is displayed and stops it when the user moves to another page or scrolls the applet out of view. In general, we would like an applet to cease its nonessential activity when it is stopped, and resume it when started again. Consider a simple base class for an Applet that maintains a Thread to automatically update its display at regular intervals. UpdateApplet handles the basic starting and stopping behavior as shown below. public class UpdateApplet extends java.applet.Applet
Page 164 of 191

COREJAVA
implements Runnable { private Thread updateThread; int updateInterval = 1000; public void run() { while ( true ) { try { Thread.sleep( updateInterval ); } catch (InterruptedException e ) { } repaint(); } } public void start() { if ( updateThread == null ) { updateThread = new Thread(this); updateThread.start(); } } public void stop() { if ( updateThread != null ) { updateThread.stop(); updateThread = null; } } } UpdateApplet is a Runnable object that alternately sleeps and calls its repaint() method. It has two other public methods: start() and stop(). These are methods of the Applet class that are overridden; These start() and stop() methods are called by the Java environment to tell the applet when it should and should not be running. UpdateApplet illustrates an environmentally friendly way to deal with threads in a simple applet. UpdateApplet kills its thread each time the applet is stopped and recreates it if the applet is restarted. When UpdateApplet's start() method is called, we first check to make sure there is no currently executing updateThread. We then create one to begin our execution. When our applet is subsequently stopped, we kill the thread by invoking its stop() method and throw away the reference by setting it to null. Setting updateThread to null serves both to allow the garbage collector to clean up the dead Thread object, and to indicate to UpdateApplet's start() method that the thread is gone. In truth, an Applet's start() and stop() methods are guaranteed to be called in sequence. As a result, we shouldn't have to check for the existence of updateThread in start() With UpdateApplet is a simplest clock applet with just a few lines of code. Figure shows the Clock. public class Clock extends UpdateApplet { public void paint( java.awt.Graphics g ) { g.drawString( new java.util.Date().toString(), 10, 25 ); } }

Page 165 of 191

COREJAVA
Figure: The clock applet

The java.util.Date().toString() sequence simply creates a string that contains the current time; The Clock applet provides a good example of a simple thread; The problem with applets is that we have no control over how a user navigates Web pages. For example, say a user scrolls our applet out of view, and we use suspend() to suspend the applet. Now we have no way of ensuring that the user will bring the applet back into view before moving on to another page. And actually, the same situation would occur if the user simply moves on to another page and never comes back. If we call suspend(), we'd really like to make sure we call resume() at a later date, or we'll end up leaving the thread hanging in permanent suspense. But we have no way of knowing if the applet will ever be restarted, so just putting a call to resume() in the applet's start() method won't work. UpdateApplet: public void start() { if ( updateThread == null ) { updateThread = new Thread(this); updateThread.start(); } else updateThread.resume(); } public void stop() { updateThread.suspend(); public void destroy() { if ( updateThread != null ) { updateThread.stop(); updateThread = null; } }

These modifications change UpdateApplet so that it suspends and restarts its updateThread, rather than killing and recreating it. The new start() method creates the thread and calls start() if updateThread is null; otherwise it assumes that the thread has been suspended, so it calls resume(). The applet's stop() method simply suspends the thread by calling suspend(). What's new here is the destroy() method. This is another method that UpdateApplet inherits from the Applet class. The method is called by the Java environment when the applet is going to be removed (often from a cache). It provides a place where we can free up any resources the applet is holding. This is the perfect place to cut the suspense and clean up after our thread. In our destroy() method, we check to see that the thread exists, and if it does, we call stop() to kill it and set its reference to null.

Inter AppletCommunication
The button component was used to add items to the list component. All of these operations occurred inside a single applet. However, imagine a case where a button-click in one applet could update a
Page 166 of 191

COREJAVA
database and trigger update messages to another applet running within the same Web page or even running on a remote computer. This type of communication is known as inter-applet communication. Possibilities of Inter-Applet Communication There are several interesting possibilities that will be available when applets are truly enabled to communicate among themselves. Here are possible types of communication: Applets that share the same Web page within the same browser Applets loaded in completely different browser windows Applets loaded on different client's browsers Applets loaded from different servers Using a technology such as Java Beans or ActiveX will also allow developers to "wrap" their applets with code that will expose an applet's methods and properties in some standardized way. Using the component model, the applet could potentially be dropped onto a Visual Basic form or used to communicate with applications written in other programming languages.

JavaSwing
What is Swing? A group of 14 packages to do with the UI 451 classes as at 1.4 (!) Part of JFC Java Foundation Classes (compare now defunct MFC)

Swing and the AWT AWT = abstract windows toolkit (cross platform) AWT = earliest version of Java GUI eg Frame AWT not JFrame Swing Most Swing components are 'lightweight' Do not mix AWT and Swing Use Swing

Swing and threads A thread is a lightweight process Most Swing components are not thread-safe Solution is to make sure all code that creates and modifies Swing components executes in the same 'event-dispatching' thread Start a Swing application using the following code..

Swing and Threads - starting up

COREJAVA
public static void main(String[] args) { SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() { public void run() { createAndShowGUI(); // << method to start it } }); } CreateAndShowGUI private static void createAndShowGUI() { //Create and set up the window. JFrame frame = new JFrame("Hi.."); frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE); //Add a label. JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello World"); frame.getContentPane().add(label); //Display the window. frame.pack(); frame.setVisible(true); }

LayoutManagers
Most Swing UIs utilise a LayoutManager to control positioning of items There is a choice of these which work in different ways Initially we do without one, and position items ourselves: frame.setLayout(null);

Absolutepositioning
JFrame frame = new JFrame("I am a JFrame"); frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE); frame.setBounds(20,30,300,100); frame.setLayout(null); JButton butt=new JButton("Click me"); frame.getContentPane().add(butt); butt.setBounds(20, 20, 200,20); frame.setVisible(true);

Try this out - start with last example and put this in CreateandShowGUI() Responding to user actions
Page 168 of 191

COREJAVA Based on an event-handling model New component eg a button should have a Listener specified The Listener object is programmed to respond to Event objects coming from the component The Listener object needs to implement the appropriate interface

Interfaces
An interface is a set of methods eg the ActionListener interface has just one method public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) A class can declare that it implements it eg public class Main implements ActionListener Then it must actually define the methods in that interface Or the compiler will complain Classes can implement multiple interfaces

Which button? If have several buttons, all must link to actionPerformed How to know which button was clicked? Use the .getSource method of the ActionEvent object

Example which button butt1=new JButton("Button 1"); .. butt2 = new JButton("Button 2"); .. public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) { if (e.getSource()==butt1) label.setText("Butt1 clicked"); else label.setText("Butt2 clicked"); }

The switch statement tests the value of a given variable against a list of case values and when a match is found,a block of statements associated with that case is executed. 8.What are the Control Statements Available in Java? While The general syntax of the while statement is:

COREJAVA while (expression) { statement } .. do-while The general syntax of the do-while is: do { statement(s) } while (expression); .. for The general form of the for statement can be expressed like this: for (initialization; termination; increment) { statement } What are the Decision-Making Statements are Available in Java? The if/else Statements the simple form of if can be written like this: if (expression) { statement(s) } if (response == OK) { // code to perform OK action } else { // code to perform Cancel action } The switch Statement switch(expression) { case value1 : statements; break; case value 2 : statements; break; case value 3 : statements; break; default : } What is the use of ? : Operator? It is used for making two-way decisions,it is a combination of ? and : ,and three operands. This operator is known as ternary operator. What is the Encapsulation?What is the Role in Object Oriented Programming? Encapsulation provides the ability to hide the internal details of an object from its users. The outside user may not be able to change the state of an object directly. Encapsulation is
Page 182 of 191

COREJAVA implemented using the access modifier keywords public, private and protected. The concept of encapsulation is also known as data hiding or information hiding. Define Abstraction? Abstraction is one of the object-oriented concepts; it is nothing but expresses the essential things not much in detail. What is the Inheritance? Inheritance is the process by which one object acquires the properties of another. Define Polymorphism? Polymorphism is a feature that allows one interface to be used for ageneral class of action. What is Unicode? Java use Unicode to represent a character. Unicode defines a fully international character set that can represent all of the characters found in all human languages. What is Scope and LifeTime of variables in Java? The variable has the scope only with in the block, where it is declared. They are created when their scope is entered, and destroyed when their scope is left. What do you Mean by Casting? Conversion of data into one type to another type is known as casting. They are classified into two types explicit casting and implicit casting. Explicit casting two incompatible types need explicit conversion (target-type) value Implicit casting it is also known as automatic type conversion . When the two types are compatible that is the destination type is larger than the source type automatic type conversion will be tack place. What will be the output of the following statement (A= 64;)? System.out.println(A<<2) 64- 0100 0000 64<<2-0001 0000 0000=256. What will be the output of the following statement (A= 64;)? System.out.println(A<<2) 64- 0100 0000 64>>2-0000 1000=8 What is the Use of Break Statement? A Java(TM) programming language keyword used to resume program execution at the statement immediately following the current statement. If followed by a label, the program resumes execution at the labeled statement. What is the Use of Continue Statement? A Java(TM) programming language keyword used to resume program execution at the end of the current loop. If followed by a label, "continue" resumes execution where the label occurs. What is the Use of Transient Keyword? A keyword in the Java programming language that indicates that a field is not part of the serialized form of an object. When an object is serialized, the values of its transient fields are not included in the serial representation, while the values of its non-transient fields are included. 141. Write short note on isAlive(). How we can get size of an Array? The size of an array can be get by using the statement arrayname.length

COREJAVA Why two classes are used to handle String in java? The Java platform provides two classes, String and StringBuffer, that store and manipulate strings-character data consisting of more than one character. The String class provides for strings whose value will not change. The StringBuffer class provides for strings that will be modified; you use string buffers when you know that the value of the character data will change. You typically use string buffers for constructing character data dynamically. What is the Wrapper Class? An object that encapsulates and delegates to another object to alter its interface or behavior in some way. All the primitive data types has it is own wrapper class. Define Class & Object? A class is prototype, that defines the variables and the methods common to all objects of a certain kind. An object is a software bundle of related variables and methods. Software objects are often used to model real-world objects you find in everyday life. What is an Instance of a class? Any item of data that is associated with a particular object. Each instance of a class has its own copy of the instance variables defined in the class. Also called a field. Define Class Variable? A data item associated with a particular class as a whole--not with particular instances of the class. Class variables are defined in class definitions. Also called a static field. What is a Static Method? A method that is invoked without reference to a particular object. Class methods affect the class as a whole, not a particular instance of the class. Also called a static method. What is the Use of this keyword? this keyword can be used to represent the current object. And also used to hide the instance variable. What is Garbage Collection? When there is no more reference to an object is found jvm collect the memory automatically. This process is known as Garbage Collection. What is a destructor and how it is implemented in java? The destructor is invoked when an object is destroyed. In java a mechanism called finalization is used to handle the destructor. It needs to override a method called protected void finalize() What is Method Overloading? Two or methods with in the same class have the same name, with different signature. What is the difference between call-by-value and callby- reference? In the case of call-by-value only the copies of the parameter are passed. So that changes made to the parameter has no effect on the argument used to call it. In the case of call-by-reference a reference to the argument is passed to the parameter. So that changes made to the parameter change the argument used to call it. What is an Access Specifier? A member of a class can be accessed is determined by the access specifier. Java supports the following access specifier
Page 184 of 191

COREJAVA public private protected What do you mean by garbage collection? Why do we need finalize() method? Deallocation of memory allocated dynamically for an object is done automatically in java. The technique that accomplishes this is called garbage collection. When no reference to an object exists, that object is assumed to be no longer needed, and the memory occupied by the object can be reclaimed. There is no explicit need to destroy objects in java. The garbage collection occurs sporadically during the execution of your program. Finalization is a mechanism provided by java to allow an object to perform some action when it is destroyed. For eg if an object is holding some non-java resource such as a file handle or window character font, then you might want to make sure these resources are freed before a object is destroyed. By using finalization, we can define specific actions that will occur when an object is just about to be reclaimed by the garbage collector. To add a finalizer to a class, simply define the finalize() method. The general form is: protected void finalize() { //finalization code here } List out Various types of Inheritance? Simple inheritance - One base class and one derived class. Multilevel inheritance - a sub class derived from another sub class Hierarchical inheritance two or more sub class have the same base class Define Method Overriding? Providing a different implementation of a method in a subclass of the class that originally defined the method. That is defining one method with same name and signature. Write short notes on final key word? A Java(TM) programming language keyword. You define an entity once and cannot change it or derive from it later. More specifically: a final class cannot be subclassed, a final method cannot be overridden and a final variable cannot change from its initialized value.

Define Abstract class and Method? A class that contains one or more abstract methods, and therefore can never be instantiated. Abstract classes are defined so that other classes can extend them and make them concrete by implementing the abstract methods. Abstract method is a method that has no implementation. Distinguish between public, private and protected? Public signifies that the method or variable can be accessed by elements residing in other classes. Private signifies that the method or variable can only be accessed by other elements of
Page 185 of 191

COREJAVA its class. Protected signifies that the method or variable can only be accessed by elements residing in its class, subclasses, or classes in the same package. Define Subclass? Sub class is a class that is derived from a particular class, perhaps with one or more classes in between. A subclass is a class that extends another class. A subclass inherits state and behavior from all of its ancestors. What is super class and what is the use of super keyword? A class from which a particular class is derived, perhaps with one or more classes in between. A Java(TM) programming language keyword used to access members of a class inherited by the class in which it appears. Define a Package? A package is a collection of related classes and interfaces providing access protection and namespace management. To make classes easier to find and to use, to avoid naming conflicts, and to control access, programmers bundle groups of related classes and interfaces into packages. How a Package is created in Java? To create a package and put a class or an interface in it, put a package statement at the top of the source file in which the class or the interface is defined. For example, the following code appears in the source file Circle.java and puts the Circle class in the graphics package: package graphics; public class Circle extends Graphic implements Draggable { ... } To import a specific member into the current file, put an import statement at the beginning of the file before any class or interface definitions but after the package statement, if there is one. import graphics.Circle; What do you mean by API? Application Programming Interface. The specification of how a programmer writing an application accesses the behavior and state of classes and objects. What do you mean by Core Packages? The required set of APIs in a Java platform edition, which must be supported, in any and all compatible implementations. Define Interface? An interface is a named collection of method definitions (without implementations). An interface can also declare constants. All the methods declared in the interface are abstract methods by default. And all the data members are static final members. What are the difference between the abstract class and interface? An interface cannot implement any methods, whereas an abstract class can. A class can implement many interfaces but can have only one superclass. An interface is not part of the class hierarchy. Unrelated classes can implement the same interface
Page 186 of 191

COREJAVA How is an interface used in Java? A class that implements an interface adheres to the protocol defined by that interface. To declare a class that implements an interface, include an implements clause in the class declaration. A class can implement more than one interface (the Java platform supports multiple inheritance for interfaces), so the implements keyword is followed by a comma-separated list of the interfaces implemented by the class. What is Java? Java is an object oriented programming language Is Java invented for Internet? No, it was developed for programming towards tiny devices What is byte code? It is machine understandable code and targeted for JVM (Java Virtual Machine). It is class file. What is JVM?

Labeled break and labeled continue are new What are new features in basic features comparing with C/C++? Data types: All data types on all machines have fixed size; Constants: final is used to declare constant Boolean Type: boolean is new data type in Java which can store true/false There are no structures/unions/pointers Is String data type? No, Strings are classes in Java (Arrays are classes) What are length and length( ) in Java? Both gives number of char/elements, length is variable defined in Array class, length( ) is method defined in String class What is class? Class is blue print for objects; Class is collection of objects; Class gives the general structure for objects. What is object? Object is an instance of class. Object is real world entity which has state, identity and behavior. What is encapsulation? Encapsulation is packing of data with their methods

Implementation details of methods are hidden from the user What is hierarchy? Ordering of classes (or inheritance) What is inheritance? Extending an existing class is called inheritance. Extracting the features of super class Why inheritance is important? Reusability is achieved through inheritance Which types of inheritances are available in Java? Simple, Hierarchical and Multilevel Can we achieve multiple inheritances in Java? With the help of interfaces we can achieve What is interface? Interface is collection of final variables and abstract methods (We need not give final and abstract keywords and By default they are public methods) What is the difference between class and interface? Class contains implemented methods, but interface contains non-implemented methods What is polymorphism? Multiple (poly) forms (morphs) Same instance can respond different manners is called polymorphism Can we achieve run time polymorphism in Java? Yes, also called as dynamic polymorphism. Possible by dynamic method dispatch What is dynamic method dispatch? When you assign object of sub class for the super class instance, similar methods of super class are hidden What is overloading? Same method name can be used with different type and number of arguments (in same class) What is overriding? Same method name, similar arguments and same number of arguments can be defined in super class and sub class. Sub class methods override the super class methods. What is the difference between overloading and overriding? Overloading related to same class and overriding related sub-super class Compile time polymorphism achieved through overloading, run time polymorphism achieved through overriding
