3.A text field has a variable-width font. It is constructed by calling new
TextField(“iiiii”). What happens if you change the contents of the text field to
“wwwww”? (Bear in mind that is one of the narrowest characters, and w is one of the widest.)
The text field becomes wider.
The text field becomes narrower.
The text field stays the same width; to see the entire contents you will have to scroll by using the ß and à keys.

Applet Related:

What is an Applet? Should applets have constructors?
Ans : Applet is a dynamic and interactive program that runs inside a Web page
displayed by a Java capable browser. We don’t have the concept of Constructors in Applets.

How do we read number information from my applet’s parameters, given that Applet’s getParameter() method returns a string?
Ans : Use the parseInt() method in the Integer Class, the Float(String) constructor in the
Class Float, or the Double(String) constructor in the class Double.

How can I arrange for different applets on a web page to communicate with each other?
Ans : Name your applets inside the Applet tag and invoke AppletContext’s getApplet()
method in your applet code to obtain references to the other applets on the page.

How do I select a URL from my Applet and send the browser to that page?
Ans : Ask the applet for its applet context and invoke showDocument() on that context object.
Eg. URL targetURL;
String URLString
AppletContext context = getAppletContext();
targetUR L = new URL(URLString);
} catch (Malformed URLException e){
// Code for recover from the exception
context. showDocument (targetURL);

Can applets on different pages communicate with each other?
Ans : No. Not Directly. The applets will exchange the information at one meeting place
either on the local file system or at remote system.

How do Applets differ from Applications?
Ans : Application: Stand Alone
Applet: Needs no explicit installation on local m/c.
Application: Execution starts with main() method.
Applet: Execution starts with init() method.
Application: May or may not be a GUI
Applet: Must run within a GUI (Using AWT)

How do I determine the width and height of my application?
Ans : Use the getSize() method, which the Applet class inherits from the Component
class in the Java.awt package. The getSize() method returns the size of the applet as
a Dimension object, from which you extract separate width, height fields.
Eg. Dimension dim = getSize ();
int appletwidth = dim.width ();

Exception Handling Related:

1) What is the difference between ‘throw’ and ‘throws’ ?And it’s application?
Ans : Exceptions that are thrown by java runtime systems can be handled by Try and catch blocks. With throw exception we can handle the exceptions thrown by the program itself. If a method is capable of causing an exception that it does not
handle, it must specify this behavior so the callers of the method can guard
against that exception.

2) What is the difference between ‘Exception’ and ‘error’ in java?
Ans : Exception and Error are the subclasses of the Throwable class. Exception class is used for exceptional conditions that user program should catch. With exception class we can subclass to create our own custom exception.
Error defines exceptions that are not excepted to be caught by you program. Example is Stack Overflow.

3) What is ‘Resource leak’?
Ans : Freeing up other resources that might have been allocated at the beginning of a method.

4)What is the ‘finally’ block?
Ans : Finally block will execute whether or not an exception is thrown. If an exception is thrown, the finally block will execute even if no catch statement match the exception. Any time a method is about to return to the caller from inside try/catch block, via an uncaught exception or an explicit return statement, the finally clause is also execute.

5) Can we have catch block with out try block? If so when?
Ans : No. Try/Catch or Try/finally form a unit.

6) What is the difference between the following statements?
Catch (Exception e),
Catch (Error err),
Catch (Throwable t)

7) What will happen to the Exception object after exception handling?
Ans : It will go for Garbage Collector. And frees the memory.

8) How many Exceptions we can define in ‘throws’ clause?
Ans : We can define multiple exceptions in throws clause.
Signature is..
type method-name (parameter-list) throws exception-list

9) The finally block is executed when an exception is thrown, even if no catch matches it.
Ans : True

10) The subclass exception should precede the base class exception when used within the catch clause.
Ans : True

11) Exceptions can be caught or rethrown to a calling method.
Ans : True

12) The statements following the throw keyword in a program are not executed.
Ans : True

13) The toString ( ) method in the user-defined exception class is overridden.

General – Variable

1) What is meant by variable?
Ans: Variables are locations in memory that can hold values. Before assigning any value to a variable, it must be declared.

2) What are the kinds of variables in Java? What are their uses?
Ans: Java has three kinds of variables namely, the instance variable, the local variable and the class variable.
Local variables are used inside blocks as counters or in methods as temporary variables and are used to store information needed by a single method.
Instance variables are used to define attributes or the state of a particular object and are used to store information needed by multiple methods in the objects.
Class variables are global to a class and to all the instances of the class and are useful for communicating between different objects of all the same class or keeping track of global states.

3) How are the variables declared?
Ans: Variables can be declared anywhere in the method definition and can be initialized during their declaration.They are commonly declared before usage at the beginning of the definition.
Variables with the same data type can be declared together. Local variables must be given a value before usage.
