    Interview Details

    Very poor interviewer asking basic questions of how you write a Java class, how can you inherit a method, etc.,
    I'm surprised that I was asked on basic Java questions for 40 minutes in an one hour interview for Lead Tech Architect position to Create Reference Architectural in BPM, SOA.

    Interview Questions
    • How you inherit the properties of two classes (not interfaces) in a child Java class. Where as those two parent classes are not related and not of any inheritance relationship between them.   View Answers (2)
