Java is primarily known for its stability, cross-platform capabilities, extensive security, static typing, and multi-threading. It is the most widely-used programming language for writing various kinds of applications such as back-end, mobile, web applications etc.
The full potential of this programming language cannot be explored in a single page code, which is the format of our current programming questions. The project question type provides a file-and-folder structure that enables the testing of Java concepts at various levels.
Additionally, Java-specific libraries can be added to the project thus providing further flexibility to the test setter to assess the candidates. These are automatically evaluated using JUnit test cases.
Why Java Project questions?
Test hands-on programming skills
This test type allows you to test a candidate’s hands-on programming skill as against testing only the algorithmic coding knowledge. You can also assess how familiar candidates are with the concepts of code structure, file hierarchy, various frameworks, and libraries within Java.
Problems based on real-life scenarios
Candidates can relate to the problems that are based on real-life scenarios, which makes problem-solving interesting.
Implementation of the JUnit framework
Recruiters often find it difficult to create input and output test cases. Therefore, we have introduced JUnit test cases, which recruiters are more familiar with. You will now be able to assess the candidate more easily. This framework helps in testing the entire code flow and not just the I/O.
Organization of Java Project
A Java Project is organized into Java logic files and test cases.
You can do the following to your files and folders:
- Create folder or file
- Lock (this implies the candidate cannot alter contents in this folder)
When you write test cases, ensure that you follow the JUnit conventions.
