The question was how to upload a file using a servlet, encoding type. I believe I answered wrong, now how bad does this look? I answered most others right, for example how to do a forward and include from a jsp to a servlet.
Chad Honestly, it could go either way. It depends on what the interviewer was looking for. Myself, I admire an interviewee who can say 'i don't know' while being interviewed. This was what, 1 out of how many questions?
Hi Al. Thanks for your concern. I think this one I blew and also the code for a cookie, in which I really haven't used in a few years and I mention it. I got the pure Java questions quite right, such as polymorphism, overriding and overloading, interfaces, but I did answer 2 servlet ones wrong and a database one. I was a little nervous when I noticed the interviewer didn't look friendly, no hello or how are you, just ok I will ask you some tech questions, here it goes......... I did say I didn't know the answer to the database question but it seemed to be a logical one and I told him what I thought it was because I may have come across it but seeing I wasn't a DBA, then my job was to forward this to the DBA but from what I remembered best in the description, I told him and he seemed ok with it. I don't know what to make of it.
Some of the questions I faced - 1. Single thread model 2. JSP/Servlet interaction 3. Can two servlets operating in two diff servlet contexts share a session? 4. How to change content type from HTML to say WML? 5. Few tomcat config questions, typically how to change port, URL mapping etc. 6. Role of a servlet in MVC architecture. 7. Why Servlets when you can have JSP? More later... HTH, - Manish

it depends on "how" wrong it is -- if it shows you have some fundamental wrong concept, it is bad; if it is just some details, no big deal (if the interviewer is not that short visioned).
Hi, Its nice to hear that you are receiving interview calls atleast. If you don't mind can I ask you about a summary of your credentials and experience. I am a little disappointed here as a java developer with 3 yrs of industry experience, sun certification for java developer a MS in software engineering I have been trying for last 6 months and have not received any phone calls or emails or any other responses. I kind of thinking what should I do where all my efforts are in vain.Am I not qualified enough to get a response? I would greatly appreciate if any one could please guide me about this situation. thanks in advance. a disappointed java developer.
Hi Reeta, I think you are very qualified. My observation has been that in the current market, it's best go through your contacts that you network with to find a job. Whatever few jobs are being posted, they are being given to whoever the existing employees bring in. It is deemed to be a safe way to bring a new person aboard because that new hire will work better with the team etc. etc. Aruna.
