What is CTS ?

Answer :

Compatibility test suite. A suite of compatibility tests for verifying that a J2EE product complies with the J2EE platform specification.

Question 7 :

What is data ?

Answer :

The contents of an element in an XML stream, generally used when the element does not contain any subelements. When it does, the term content is generally used. When the only text in an XML structure is contained in simple elements and when elements that have subelements have little or no data mixed in, then that structure is often thought of as XML data, as opposed to an XML document.

Question 8 :

What is DDP ?

Answer :

Document-driven programming. The use of XML to define applications.

Question 9 :

What is declaration ?

Answer :

The very first thing in an XML document, which declares it as XML. The minimal declaration is . The declaration is part of the document prolog.

Question 10 :

What is declarative security ?

Answer :

Mechanisms used in an application that are expressed in a declarative syntax in a deployment descriptor.

Question 11 :

What is delegation ?

Answer :

An act whereby one principal authorizes another principal to use its identity or privileges with some restrictions.

Question 12 :

What is deployer ?

Answer :

A person who installs J2EE modules and applications into an operational environment.

Question 13 :

What is deployment ?

Answer :

The process whereby software is installed into an operational environment.

Question 14 :

What is deployment descriptor ?

Answer :

An XML file provided with each module and J2EE application that describes how they should be deployed. The deployment descriptor directs a deployment tool to deploy a module or application with specific container options and describes specific configuration requirements that a deployer must resolve.

Question 15 :

What is destination ?

Answer :

A JMS administered object that encapsulates the identity of a JMS queue or topic. See point-to-point messaging system, publish/subscribe messaging system.

Question 16 :

What is digest authentication ?

Answer :

An authentication mechanism in which a Web application authenticates itself to a Web server by sending the server a message digest along with its HTTP request message. The digest is computed by employing a one-way hash algorithm to a concatenation of the HTTP request message and the client's password. The digest is typically much smaller than the HTTP request and doesn't contain the password.

Question 17 :

What is distributed application ?

Answer :

An application made up of distinct components running in separate runtime environments, usually on different platforms connected via a network. Typical distributed applications are two-tier (client-server), three-tier (client-middleware-server), and multitier (client-multiple middleware-multiple servers).

Question 18 :

What is document ?

Answer :

In general, an XML structure in which one or more elements contains text intermixed with subelements.

Question 19 :

What is Document Object Model ?

Answer :

An API for accessing and manipulating XML documents as tree structures. DOM provides platform-neutral, language-neutral interfaces that enables programs and scripts to dynamically access and modify content and structure in XML documents.

Question 20 :

What is document root ?

Answer :

The top-level directory of a WAR. The document root is where JSP pages, client-side classes and archives, and static Web resources are stored.

Question 21 :

What is DTD ?

Answer :

Document type definition. An optional part of the XML document prolog, as specified by the XML standard. The DTD specifies constraints on the valid tags and tag sequences that can be in the document. The DTD has a number of shortcomings, however, and this has led to various schema proposals. For example, the DTD entry says that the XML element called username contains parsed character data-that is, text alone, with no other structural elements under it. The DTD includes both the local subset, defined in the current file, and the external subset, which consists of the definitions contained in external DTD files that are referenced in the local subset using a parameter entity.

Question 22 :

What is durable subscription ?

Answer :

In a JMS publish/subscribe messaging system, a subscription that continues to exist whether or not there is a current active subscriber object. If there is no active subscriber, the JMS provider retains the subscription's messages until they are received by the subscription or until they expire.

Question 23 :

What is EAR file ?

Answer :

Enterprise Archive file. A JAR archive that contains a J2EE application.

Question 24 :

What is ebXML ?

Answer :

Electronic Business XML. A group of specifications designed to enable enterprises to conduct business through the exchange of XML-based messages. It is sponsored by OASIS and the United Nations Centre for the Facilitation of Procedures and Practices in Administration, Commerce and Transport (U.N./CEFACT).

Question 25 :

What is EJB ?

Answer :

Enterprise JavaBeans.

Question 26 :

What is EJB container ?

Answer :

A container that implements the EJB component contract of the J2EE architecture. This contract specifies a runtime environment for enterprise beans that includes security, concurrency, life-cycle management, transactions, deployment, naming, and other services. An EJB container is provided by an EJB or J2EE server.

Question 27 :

What is EJB container provider ?

Answer :

A vendor that supplies an EJB container.

Question 28 :

What is EJB context ?

Answer :

A vendor that supplies an EJB container. An object that allows an enterprise bean to invoke services provided by the container and to obtain the information about the caller of a client-invoked method.

Question 29 :

What is EJB Home object ?

Answer :

An object that provides the life-cycle operations (create, remove, find) for an enterprise bean. The class for the EJB Home object is generated by the container's deployment tools. The EJB Home object implements the enterprise bean's Home interface. The client references an EJB Home object to perform life-cycle operations on an EJB object. The client uses JNDI to locate an EJB Home object.

Question 30 :

What is EJB JAR file ?

Answer :

A JAR archive that contains an EJB module.

Question 31 :

What is EJB module ?

Answer :

A deployable unit that consists of one or more enterprise beans and an EJB deployment descriptor.

Question 32 :

What is EJB object ?

Answer :

An object whose class implements the enterprise bean's remote interface. A client never references an enterprise bean instance directly; a client always references an EJB object. The class of an EJB object is generated by a container's deployment tools.

Question 33 :

What is EJB server ?

Answer :

Software that provides services to an EJB container. For example, an EJB container typically relies on a transaction manager that is part of the EJB server to perform the two-phase commit across all the participating resource managers. The J2EE architecture assumes that an EJB container is hosted by an EJB server from the same vendor, so it does not specify the contract between these two entities. An EJB server can host one or more EJB containers.

Question 34 :

What is EJB server provider ?

Answer :

A vendor that supplies an EJB server.

Question 35 :

What is element ?

Answer :

A unit of XML data, delimited by tags. An XML element can enclose other elements.

Question 36 :

What is empty tag ?

Answer :

A tag that does not enclose any content.

Question 37 :

What is enterprise bean ?

Answer :

A J2EE component that implements a business task or business entity and is hosted by an EJB container; either an entity bean, a session bean, or a message-driven bean.

Question 38 :

What is enterprise bean provider ?

Answer :

An application developer who produces enterprise bean classes, remote and Interview Questions - Home interfaces, and deployment descriptor files, and packages them in an EJB JAR file.

Question 39 :

What is enterprise information system ?

Answer :

The applications that constitute an enterprise's existing system for handling companywide information. These applications provide an information infrastructure for an enterprise. An enterprise information system offers a well-defined set of services to its clients. These services are exposed to clients as local or remote interfaces or both. Examples of enterprise information systems include enterprise resource planning systems, mainframe transaction processing systems, and legacy database systems.

Question 40 :

What is enterprise information system resource ?

Answer :

An entity that provides enterprise information system-specific functionality to its clients. Examples are a record or set of records in a database system, a business object in an enterprise resource planning system, and a transaction program in a transaction processing system.

Question 41 :

What is Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) ?

Answer :

A component architecture for the development and deployment of object-oriented, distributed, enterprise-level applications. Applications written using the Enterprise JavaBeans architecture are scalable, transactional, and secure.

Question 42 :

What is Enterprise JavaBeans Query Language (EJB QL) ?

Answer :

Defines the queries for the finder and select methods of an entity bean having container-managed persistence. A subset of SQL92, EJB QL has extensions that allow navigation over the relationships defined in an entity bean's abstract schema.

Question 43 :

What is an entity ?

Answer :

A distinct, individual item that can be included in an XML document by referencing it. Such an entity reference can name an entity as small as a character (for example, <, which references the less-than symbol or left angle bracket, <). An entity reference can also reference an entire document, an external entity, or a collection of DTD definitions.

Question 44 :

What is entity bean ?

Answer :

An enterprise bean that represents persistent data maintained in a database. An entity bean can manage its own persistence or can delegate this function to its container. An entity bean is identified by a primary key. If the container in which an entity bean is hosted crashes, the entity bean, its primary key, and any remote references survive the crash.

Question 45 :

What is entity reference ?

Answer :

A reference to an entity that is substituted for the reference when the XML document is parsed. It can reference a predefined entity such as < or reference one that is defined in the DTD. In the XML data, the reference could be to an entity that is defined in the local subset of the DTD or to an external XML file (an external entity). The DTD can also carve out a segment of DTD specifications and give it a name so that it can be reused (included) at multiple points in the DTD by defining a parameter entity.

Question 46 :

What is error ?

Answer :

A SAX parsing error is generally a validation error; in other words, it occurs when an XML document is not valid, although it can also occur if the declaration specifies an XML version that the parser cannot handle. See also fatal error, warning.

Question 47 :

What is Extensible Markup Language ?

Answer :


Question 48 :

What is external entity ?

Answer :

An entity that exists as an external XML file, which is included in the XML document using an entity reference.

Question 49 :

What is external subset ?

Answer :

That part of a DTD that is defined by references to external DTD files.

Question 50 :

What is fatal error ?

Answer :

A fatal error occurs in the SAX parser when a document is not well formed or otherwise cannot be processed. See also error, warning.
