In the interview, I am asked : "describe the project structure which I am working on". My project is plain MVC web application. I am confused, what they want to know ?

Anybody could give me some example ?

Thanks.

Well... did you happen to ask the interviewer to elaborate the question?

They expect you to know the architecture of what you are working on. If you don't know, they wish to be told why.

What difficulty is there? I can think of answering this question in two ways (1) The project team structure and roles of each team member and how the project was executed (2) The technical architecture.

I think Edward is talking about how to explain Architecture of project not team structure.

Hi Edward,

This is very common interview question. I was also asked the same question. Here is my answer to this question.

If you are working on plain MVC web application , you could have explained your project structure like short description of how many controllers you are using.For example if your application has a no. of products or services and it is login based then the expected controllers would be "Logincontroller" , "ProductAController" , "ExceptionController" and explain Dao approach for DB communication , components used in model like EJB , MDBs, webservices. You can also mention like for J2EE application JSP gets stored in WebContent and controller and model classes goes into src.

SRC
|____Controller
| |___LoginController
| |___ProductA_Controller
| |___ProductB_Controller
|
|____ Model
|___Module A
|___Module B
|___Module C

Thanks,
Neena
