Hacker Round Test:

    • Replace a character c1 with c2 and c2 with c1 in a string S. But it was mentioned that the string will be large and needs to be efficient. Brue force solution was giving timed out for most of the test cases.
    • Given a string like ‘01001010’, min number of modifications (0 to 1 or 1 to 0) required to make all characters alternative.
    • Some math-related questions, which was not clear.

They called for Face-2-Face Interviews to Hyderabad Campus.

Round 1:

  • Polymorphism in Java. Write examples for compile and run time polymorphisms
  • Difference between list and ArrayList. She was looking for an answer that Arraylist is implemented as a dynamic array unlike the normal list
  • String Mutability in Java
  • Some questions related to memory allocation in java for objects and arrays.
  • Subclass and superclass objects calling each others methods.
  • Find Excel column number from column title.
    After giving a solution, she asked if this will perform for Large column names like 2**n and all. Then I changed the result variable in my code to Long instead of int .. to handle if its large data. She was expecting more optimization … Then I told, we can go for pattern matching and storing the corresponding value to use them back. She asked which data structure I would use. I told I would use trie.

Round 2: It was a design-oriented round.

  • Write Singleton Pattern using lazy implementation. Then asked to make it thread-safe and improve it further.
  • Few questions about exposing rest resources and about authentication.
  • Data Structures and design patterns used in the present company.
  • If you want to send mail each time an exception occurs in code how will you do it?
  • Write the basic try-catch implementation
  • Implement the java method which creates a table and a few more steps. How will you handle if an exception occurs during the other steps after table creation?
  • Class A has a Class B in it. Class B has class A in it. It’s a cyclic dependency, how will your present framework handle this?
  • Is serializable used in our code

Round 3:



  • About the current company and team
  • Reverse a Linked List in groups of given size
  • Asked questions about databases as query optimization was bit highlighted in my resume.
    1. Different types of indexes and how they work and implementation etc
    2. Differences between b tree and b+ tree
    3. What are joins and how they work
