Java Lang Package Interview Questions

1 what is the base class of all classes?

Ans: java.lang.Object

2 what do you think is the logic behind having a single base class for all classes?

Ans: 1. casting

2. Hierarchial and object oriented structure.

3 why most of the Thread functionality is specified in Object Class?

4 what is the importance of == and equals () method with respect to String object?

Ans: == is used to check whether the references are of the same object.
.equals () is used to check whether the contents of the objects are the same.
But with respect to strings, object refernce with same content
will refer to the same object.

String str1=”Hello”;
String str2=”Hello”;

(str1==str2) and str1.equals(str2) both will be true.

If you take the same example with Stringbuffer, the results would be different.
Stringbuffer str1=”Hello”;
Stringbuffer str2=”Hello”;
str1.equals(str2) will be true.
str1==str2 will be false.
