Compaq Interview Questions and Answers
1)How do you do dynamic memory allocation in C applications? List advantages and disadvantages of dynamic memory allocation vs. static memory allocation.
Ans In C, malloc, calloc and realloc are used to allocate memory dynamically. In C++, new(), is usually used to allocate objects. Some advantages and disadvantages of dynamic memory allocation are:
• Memory is allocated on an as-needed basis. This helps remove the inefficiencies inherent to static memory allocation (when the amount of memory needed is not known at compile time and one has to make a guess).
• Dynamic memory allocation is slower than static memory allocation. This is because dynamic memory allocation happens in the heap area.
• Dynamic memory needs to be carefully deleted after use. They are created in non-contiguous area of memory segment.
• Dynamic memory allocation causes contention between threads, so it degrades performance when it happens in a thread.
• Memory fragmentation.

What is Release Profile?
Release Profile is used to release timeseries data from DP to SNP/PPDS. You need to define the DP Planning Area and timeseries keyfigure the data in which is released and the SNP Category Type (typically FA) to which data is released. You may maintain a Daily Buckets Profile it will define the number of working days (working days determined based on Shipping Calendar maintained for the location master) starting on and from the From Date if released online/ interactively or that many workdays of the planning horizon when release is carried out in background. The Period Split (blank, 1 and 2) field in the SNP2 tab of location-product master determines how demand plan is released to SNP from DP (how bucketed data is disaggregated to the workdays).
What is the usage of Period Factor?
Period Factor maintained in the SNP PPM or Transportation Lane determines the Availability Date of a Receipt element within a time bucket (period). The system determines the exact availability date/time of the receipt elements within a period, by adding a time interval (that it gets by multiplying the period factor with the period length) to the start time of the period. You can enter a factor between 0 and 1, where 0 is the start of the period, 0.5 the middle, and 1 the end of the period. When calculating the availability date/time, the system takes into consideration all weekdays, meaning that it does not take into consideration any days that have been defined as non-workdays in the calendars.
Period Factor used is .71 = 7x0.71 = 4.97 or 5 days from ptimizer of weekly bucket resulting in a Friday.
If Period Factor is not maintained in PPM or Transportation Lane then the User Period Factor indicator and the Period Factor value maintained in the Lot Size tab of the location-product combination is used. If this is not maintained a default value of 0.5 is used.
What determines stock categories displayed in Stock on Hand keyfigure?

SAP SCM 4.1 is the new available Supply Chain Management Solution offered by SAP. The SAP SCM 4.1 System includes SAP APO 4.1 (Advanced Planning and Optimization), SAP ICH 4.1 (Inventory Collaboration Hub) and SAP EM 4.1 (Event Management).
How about the architecture of SAP SCM 4.1?
SAP SCM 4.1 is based on the SAP Web Application Server 6.40. All SAP SCM 4.1 Architecture Components can be installed on one hardware server, as long as this server is sized for all used application components.
What does APO mean?
SAP APO stands for SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization and is the planning component within the mySAP SCM solution.
Can SAP APO be used as a stand-alone solution?
No, SAP APO always requires a backend ERP system for execution functions. In most cases, the backend system is an SAP R/3 system.
Can SAP APO and SAP R/3 be installed on the same server and use the same database?
No, SAP APO requires a separate server. The actual size of the SAP APO system may vary and depends on the data volume to be processed. You can find more details on this subject under the alias /sizing on the SAP Service Marketplace (//http:/
How does SAP R/3 communicate with SAP APO?
Through the APO Core Interface (CIF) which supplies SAP APO with master and transaction data in real time. CIF is delivered through the R/3 Plug-In, which is something you have to install in your SAP R/3 system. This is the same Plug-In that you need for connecting a BW or a CRM system.
What about the exchange of data between the two systems?
With SAP APO you have a real-time integration to SAP R/3. The minute you change something in one system, it is immediately being transferred to the other and vice versa. And that goes for all data, be it a sales order, a production order or a purchase order. You do not have to perform any batch jobs for transferring data between the systems.
OK, SAP APO is a separate system. Do I have to maintain the master data twice?
No. You create and change master data exclusively in SAP R/3. If you want to work with SAP APO, you need to transfer the master data from the SAP R/3 system.
Depending on the scenario you want to use in SAP APO, you may have to enhance the transferred data with SAP APO specific settings, which are not relevant to SAP R/3.
What is an easy, cost efficient way of installing some standard SAP APO scenarios?
The answer is: SAP Best Practices for Supply Chain Management. Choose one or more of the mySAP SCM business scenarios that SAP Best Practices for SCM provide.

All of the layouts inherit from ViewGroup (which inherits from View) so you can nest layouts. You could also create your own custom layout by making a class that inherits from ViewGroup.
The standard Layouts are:

Apple Interview Questions
Some interview questions I was asked at Apple: from zevens blog
* Choose something you know a lot about, and teach it to us.
* Tell us about two situation in which you worked in a group, one time it worked well and another time it didn't.
* Look at C code fragments and find the error (a buffer overflow due to a lack of bounds checking on function parameters, and using a short data type when a long would have been safer.)
* Describe the strengths and weaknesses of two or three programming languages.
* Describe three drawbacks to using C++ for a project.
* Describe test cases where automation doesn't work well.
* I see you took course x, tell me about it and why you liked it.
* How are you different from your peers?
* What was your favorite course?
* If you found a certain bug in the software you were testing, describe the steps you would take to verify it and write it up. They gave me a couple hypothetical bugs to consider.
* Describe x, y, and z about this particular job on your resume.
Overall, nothing too suprising. There must have been more questions than this but that's all I can remember for now :)

Although board can throw any question on you but with a little brainstorming and application we can always find out some of the questions which are very commonly asked in the interviews. Candidates should always prepare structured answers of such questions so that they would not find any difficulty at the time of interview.

Android Tutorials : Simple Lists Activity

Android Tutorials : Lists Activity
In most mobile applications, you’re going to be presenting your users a list of something. Most of the time, it’s not as simple as an array of strings; your data may be stored away in a local Sqlite database, or perhaps behind a RESTful API. In any case, we’ll be taking a look at what it takes to begin with a simple ListActivity that can be easily updated later on.
Create a new Android Project (1.1+) and name the activity MyListActivity (or whatever you prefer.) Run the app to ensure you’re working off a valid clean slate.
Next, modify your activity (MyListActivity) to extend the Android class ListActivity and adjust your code to look like the following:
package com.learnandroid.listviewtutorial.simple;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.ListAdapter;
public class MainListView extends ListActivity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
ListAdapter adapter = createAdapter();
* Creates and returns a list adapter for the current list activity
* @return
protected ListAdapter createAdapter()
return null;
So far, so good. We have a method to create our list adapter, so essentially, our onCreate() method is done. Let’s move on to adapters.

Adapters basically glue a collection of objects to an activity, usually by providing a mapping or instructions on how to render each object in the list for the activity. In our case, we have a simple list of strings, so our adapter is pretty straightforward (and in fact, is already provided by Android: ArrayAdapter)
Modify your createAdapter() method to look like the following:
* Creates and returns a list adapter for the current list activity
* @return
protected ListAdapter createAdapter()
// Create some mock data
String[] testValues = new String[] {
// Create a simple array adapter (of type string) with the test values
ListAdapter adapter = new ArrayAdapter(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, testValues);
return adapter;
This encapsulates everything we need to get an adapter up and running. Typically here we may make a call-out to data, which may be a Sqlite query or a RESTful GET request, but for now we’re using simple strings. We create an ArrayAdapter and specify three things: Context, Layout, and Data.

The Context is simply where the list came from. In our app it’s simple, but sometimes it can get a little complex when you’re passing intents back and forth across activities, so this is used to keep a reference to the owner activity at all times.
The Layout is where the data will be rendered (and how it will look.) We’re using a built-in Android layout for our needs (simple_list_item_1).
The Data is what will be rendered, and is a simple list of strings.
Final result should look like the following:
package com.learnandroid.listviewtutorial.simple;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.ListAdapter;
public class MainListView extends ListActivity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
ListAdapter adapter = createAdapter();
* Creates and returns a list adapter for the current list activity
* @return
protected ListAdapter createAdapter()
// Create some mock data
String[] testValues = new String[] {
// Create a simple array adapter (of type string) with the test value.
ListAdapter adapter = new ArrayAdapter(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, testValues);
return adapter;
Run the app, and you should see something like this:

A screen shot of an example list of strings

And there you have a nice introduction to a ListActivity that can be expanded upon by focusing on the createAdapter() method. In Part 2, we’ll explore using more complex Object lists and custom Adapters, as well as a brief introduction to the layout files. Thanks for reading!

Blackbox testing static and dynamic testing

Blackbox testing static and dynamic testing
Two other terms used to explain how software is tested are static testing and dynamic testing. Static testing refers to testing something that is not running, examining and reviewing it. Dynamic testing is that which you would normally think of as testing moving and using the software.
The best analogy for these terms is the process through which you go when checking out a used car. Kicking the tires, checking the paint, and looking under the bonnet are static testing techniques. Starting it up, listening to the engine and driving down the road are dynamic testing techniques.
Static Black-Box Testing: Testing the Specification
Testing the specification is static black-box testing. The specification is a document, not a running program, so it's considered static. It's also something that was made using data from many sources usability studies, focus groups, marketing input, and so on. You don't necessarily need to know how or why that information was obtained or the details of the process used to obtain it, just that it's been boiled down into a product specification. You can then take that document, perform static black-box testing, and carefully examine it for bugs.
What do you do if your project does not have a specification? May be your team is using the big-bang model or a loose code-and-fix model. As a software tester, this is a challenging position. Your aim is to find errors or bugs early ideally getting them before the software is coded but if your product does not have a spec, this may look impossible to do. Although the spec may not be written down, someone, or many people, knows what they are trying to build. It may be a project manager, the developer, or a marketer. Use them as the walking, talking, and product spec and apply the same techniques for evaluating this "mental" specification as though it was written on paper. You can even take this step further by recording the info you collect and circulating it for review.
Dynamic Black-Box Testing: Testing the Software When Blindfolded
Testing software without having an insight into the details of underlying code is dynamic black-box testing. It's dynamic because the program is executing you are using it as a customer would. And, it's black-box because you are testing it without understanding exactly how it works with blinders on. You are entering inputs, receiving outputs, and checking the results. Another name commonly used for dynamic black-box testing is behavioral testing because you're testing how the software actually behaves when it's used.

What is Mutation testing

What is Mutation testing
A method for determining if a set of test data or test cases is useful, by deliberately introducing various code changes (’bugs’) and retesting with the original test data/cases to determine if the ‘bugs’ are detected. Proper implementation requires large computational resources.

What is Beta testing

What is Beta testing
Testing when development and testing are essentially completed and final bugs and problems need to be found before final release. Typically done by end-users or others, not by programmers or testers.

What is Alpha testing

What is Alpha testing
Testing of an application when development is nearing completion; minor design changes may still be made as a result of such testing. Typically done by end-users or others, not by programmers or testers.

What is Comparison testing

What is Comparison testing
Comparing software weaknesses and strengths to competing products.

What is User acceptance testing

What is User acceptance testing
Determining if software is satisfactory to an end-user or customer.

What is Ad-hoc testing

What is Ad-hoc testing
Similar to exploratory testing, but often taken to mean that the testers have significant understanding of the software before testing it.

What is Exploratory testing

What is Exploratory testing
Often taken to mean a creative, informal software test that is not based on formal test plans or test cases; testers may be learning the software as they test it.

What is Compatibility testing

What is Compatibility testing
Testing how well software performs in a particular hardware/software/operating system/network/etc. environment.

What is Security testing

What is Security testing
Testing how well the system protects against unauthorized internal or external access, willful damage, etc; may require sophisticated testing techniques.

What is Recovery testing

What is Recovery testing
Testing how well a system recovers from crashes, hardware failures, or other catastrophic problems.

What is Install/uninstall testing

What is Install/uninstall testing
Testing of full, partial, or upgrade install/uninstall processes.

What is Usability testing

What is Usability testing
Testing for ‘user-friendliness’. Clearly this is subjective, and will depend on the targeted end-user or customer. User interviews, surveys, video recording of user sessions, and other techniques can be used. Programmers and testers are usually not appropriate as usability testers.

What is Performance testing

What is Performance testing
Term often used interchangeably with ’stress’ and ‘load’ testing. Ideally ‘performance’ testing (and any other ‘type’ of testing) is defined in requirements documentation or QA or Test Plans.

What is Stress testing

What is Stress testing
Term often used interchangeably with ‘load’ and ‘performance’ testing. Also used to describe such tests as system functional testing while under unusually heavy loads, heavy repetition of certain actions or inputs, input of large numerical values, large complex queries to a database system, etc.

What is Load testing

What is Load testing
Testing an application under heavy loads, such as testing of a web site under a range of loads to determine at what point the systems response time degrades or fails.

What is Acceptance testing

What is Acceptance testing
Final testing based on specifications of the end-user or customer, or based on use by end-users/customers over some limited period of time.

What is Regression testing

What is Regression testing
Re-testing after fixes or modifications of the software or its environment. It can be difficult to determine how much re-testing is needed, especially near the end of the development cycle. Automated testing tools can be especially useful for this type of testing.

What is Sanity testing

What is Sanity testing
Typically an initial testing effort to determine if a new software version is performing well enough to accept it for a major testing effort. For example, if the new software is crashing systems every 5 minutes, bogging down systems to a crawl, or destroying databases, the software may not be in a ’sane’ enough condition to warrant further testing in its current state.

What is End-to-end testing

What is End-to-end testing
Similar to system testing; the ‘macro’ end of the test scale; involves testing of a complete application environment in a situation that mimics real-world use, such as interacting with a database, using network communications, or interacting with other hardware, applications, or systems if appropriate.

Tips when going for job Interview

Tips when going for job Interview
* Do not smoke, chew gum, or eat garlic beforehand.
* Wear suitable interview clothes.
* Take copies of your CV with you.
* Arrive on time for your job interview.
* Any applications handed before the interview begins, are to be filled in as accurately as possible, make ure they match the information in your Cv and Cover Letter.
* Always greet the interviewer by his/her last name and try to pronounce it correctly.
* Have a good firm handshake.
* Look alert and interested. Scan the room once and then keep your eyes on the interviewer.
* Wait until you are offered a chair before you sit down.
* Stress your achievements.
* Always conduct yourself professionally and if something beyond your control occurs, show a sense of humor.
* Be enthusiastic and show it in your replies and body language.
* Answer the interview question by more than a simple yes or no but try not to go over the 60 second limit.
* Avoid at all cost complaining about your current or former employer in your job interview.
* Do not answer questions about politics or religion if the job is completely unrelated.
* Do not raise salary discussions on your first interview - this is usually done on the second interview. Make sure you do your wage research before hand.
Your answer to the initial opening statements in the job interview are important, these are called "ice breakers".
Some times the interviewer will ask whether you had difficulty finding the company premises. Your answer should be brief and polite. The interviewer is merely being polite - if you had problems in finding the premises he/she doesn't need to know that.

Use replies such as:
* I'm fine thank you, and you?
* I'm very well, thank you.

Computers General knowledge Questions and answers

Computers General knowledge Questions and answers
Where are files and websites on the internet stored?
Ans:The internet is a collection of a large number of client-server based systems. So all files and other resources on it are stored on secondary storage devices of the respective servers. Servers of websites are termed as web servers. So when you type in a URL of a website in the address bar of your browser, it makes a connection to that web server which in turn fetches the data from the secondary storage device (such as the hard disk) that they must be using and returns it to the respective browser. The same holds true for any other resource (image, MP3 file, zipped file, etc.) that you access on the internet.
2 Who invented the QWERTY keyboard?
Ans: QWERTY keyboard (also known as universal keyboard) is used in modern computers. The name QWERTY comes from the first six letters in the top row. It was invented by C L Sholes in 1872.
3 What is the full form of TFT in computer and mobile screens?
Ans: Thin Film Transistor (TFT) is a type of LCD flat-panel display screen. It’s called so because each pixel is controlled by transistors. TFT technology provides the best resolution of all the flat-panel technologies, but it is also the most expensive. TFT displays are usually designed to run at a specific resolution.
4 What does the term ‘screen slave’ mean?
Ans: Screen slaves refers to people who are abnormally addicted to the computer. For example, screen slaves would communicate via e-mail with people sitting right next to them. The screen slave culture, which is particularly rampant in offices the world over, is adding to the sedentary lifestyle of white collar workers, thereby increasing related disorders such as obesity, heart disease and Repetitive Stress Injury.
5 What is a TFT monitor?
Ans: Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Liquid Crystal Display technology does away with the traditional bulky Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). LCDs use a strong backlight as the light source and control how much of this light is allowed to reach the dots (pixels) by selectively allowing the light to reach each pixel. LCDs achieve this by taking advantage of a key property of ‘twisted’ liquid crystal molecules; their ability to naturally block polarised light but then let it through by degrees when a small electric field is applied. LCD cells are accurately controlled and arranged in a flat matrix of rows and columns.
6 What is a ‘firewall’ in computer terminology?
Ans: In computer security, a firewall is a device that blocks unauthorised access to an organisation’s local area network. A firewall can reside on the administrative computer, the server that acts as the LAN’s gateway to the Internet. The firewall keeps track of every file entering or leaving the local area network in order to detect the source of viruses and other problems that might enter the network.
7 What is a handshake in computers?
Ans: Handshake is the process by which two computers initiate communication. A handshake begins when one sends a message to another indicating that it nature of quantum mechanics and space and time. In String Theory, all forces and particles emerge in an elegant geometrical way, realising Einstein’s dream of building everything from the geometry of space-time.
8 What is utility computing?
Ans: Utility computing is a service provisioning model in which a service provider makes computing resources and infrastructure management available to the customer as needed, and charges them for specific usage rather than a flat rate. Like other types of on-demand computing (such as grid computing), the utility model seeks to maximise the efficient use of resources and/ or minimise associated costs.
9 What is the difference between an inverter and a UPS?
Ans: Practically, both are same. An inverter converts DC power supply into AC supply. A UPS (Uninterupted Power Supply) is an electronic device which uses inverter technology in it. UPS uses AC supply when power is there, converts into DC power and stores it. This DC power is converted back to AC supply and provides stand by power when electricity goes off.
10 What is e-waste?
Ans: All obsolete electronic devices such as computers, servers, printers, monitors, TVs, cellphones, calculators, CDs, floppies, chips, processors, motherboard, PCB etc. end up as e-waste. E-waste contains many hazardous substances like PVC, plastics, heavy metals, Brominated Flame Retardants etc.

What is System testing

What is System testing
Black box type testing that is based on overall requirement specifications; covers all combined parts of a system.

What is Functional testing

What is Functional testing
Black-box type testing geared to functional requirements of an application; this type of testing should be done by testers. This doesn’t mean that the programmers shouldn’t check that their code works before releasing it (which of course applies to any stage of testing.)

What is Integration testing

What is Integration testing
Testing of combined parts of an application to determine if they function together correctly. The ‘parts’ can be code modules, individual applications, client and server applications on a network, etc. This type of testing is especially relevant to client/server and distributed systems.

What is Incremental integration testing

What is Incremental integration testing
Continuous testing of an application as new functionality is added; requires that various aspects of an application’s functionality be independent enough to work separately before all parts of the program are completed, or that test drivers be developed as needed; done by programmers or by testers.

What is Unit testing

What is Unit testing
The most ‘micro’ scale of testing; to test particular functions or code modules. Typically done by the programmer and not by testers, as it requires detailed knowledge of the internal program design and code. Not always easily done unless the application has a well-designed architecture with tight code; may require developing test driver modules or test harnesses.

What is whitebox testing

What is whitebox testing
Testsbased on knowledge of the internal logic of an application’s code. Tests are based on coverage of code statements, branches, paths, conditions.

What is blackbox testing

What is blackbox testing
Tests not based on any knowledge of internal design or code. Tests are based on requirements and functionality.
