Difference between a java object reference and c++ pointer.

Posted By :Ghanashyam Nayak     Posted Date :September 28, 2010    Points :10   Category :JavaScript/VBScript 
The prime difference is that pointers are to locate the address of the primitive variables only, where as object reference locates the object in the heap.

What is the difference between NULL AND VOID pointer?

  
NULL can be value for pointer type variables.
VOID is a type identifier which has not size.
NULL and void are not same. Example: void* ptr = NULL; (More...)

Value type & reference types difference? Example from .NET. Integer & struct are value types or reference types in .NET?

  
Most programming languages provide builtin data types, such as integers and floatingpointnumbers, that are copied when they are passed as arguments (that is, they are passed by value). In the .NET Framework, these are called value types. The runtime

supports two kinds of value types:
· Builtin
value types
The .NET Framework defines builtin
value types, such as System.Int32 and
System.Boolean, which correspond and are identical to primitive data types
used by programming languages.
· Userdefined
value types
Your language will provide ways to define your own value types, which derive from System.ValueType. If you want to define a type representing a value that is small, such as a complex number (using two floatingpoint numbers),
you might choose to define it as a value type because you can pass the value type efficiently by value. If the type you are defining would be more efficiently passed by reference, you should define it as a class instead.

Variables of reference types, referred to as objects, store references to the actual data. This following are the reference types:
· class
· interface
· delegate
This following are the builtin
reference types:
· object (More...)

What is object Reference Tracing?

  
Object Reference Tracing is record sequential stack traces each time whenever object reference counter is incremented or decremented. These traces help to detect object reference errors, double-dereferencing, failure to reference. (More...)

What is the difference between "using System.Data;" and directly adding the reference from "Add References Dialog Box"?

  
When you compiles a program using command line, u add the references using /r switch. When you compile a program using Visual Studio, it adds those references to our assembly, which are added using "Add Reference" dialog box. While "using" statement facilitates us to use classes without using their fully qualified names.

For example: if u have added a reference to "System.Data.SqlClient" using "Add Reference" dialog box then u can use SqlConnection class like this:

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection

But if u add a "using System.Data.SqlClient" statement at the start of ur code then u can directly use SqlConnection class.

On the other hand if u add a reference using "using System.Data.SqlClient" statement, but don't add it using "Add Reference" dialog box, Visual Studio will give error message while we compile the program. (More...)

what is the difference between object based and object oriented programming language?

  
object based language such as VB 6.0. The main difference is about the pureness of OO nature.VB 6.0 does not handle each and every thing as an object VB.NET or C# or Java does so (More...)

Difference between Object Base and Object Oriented ?

  
In object oriented you use build in class, template class and also define your own class but in object base we can only use build in class User cannot create his own class.
Thats all. (More...)

what is the difference between value type and reference type?

  
Value type is stored in stack.
Reference type stored in heap. (More...)

What is a SPSite and SPWeb object, and what is the difference between each of the objects?

  
The SPSite object represents a collection of sites (site collection [a top level site and all its subsites]). The SPWeb object represents an instance SharePoint Web, and SPWeb object contains things like the actual content. A SPSite object contains the various subsites and the information regarding them.
(More...)

Explain the ways to serialize the java object.

  
Object serialization could be used in different ways:

- Simple persistence of the object
- Reading from and writing to files
- RMI technology for communicating across hosts.

The encryption and decryption is left to the network transport. SSL or the like can be used when a secured channel is needed. (More...)

Difference between Cache object and application object ?

  
Difference between the Cache and Application objects is that the Cache object provides cache-specific features, such as dependencies and expiration policies. (More...)

What is a SPSite and SPWeb object, and what is the difference between each of the objects?

  

The SPSite object represents a collection of sites (site collection [a top level site and all its subsites]). The SPWeb object represents an instance SharePoint Web, and SPWeb object contains things like the actual content. A SPSite object contains the various subsites and the information regarding them (More...)

What is The Difference Between Final variable,method,class IN Java.

  
Final variable - Like Constant.
Final method - Can't overridden.
Final class - Can't Inherited by Any other Class (More...)

Explain the difference between cache object and application object.

  
Application Object: Application variable/object stores an Object with a scope of availability of the entire Application unless explicitly destroyed.

Caching Object: The lifetime of cache is throughout the lifetime of an application or is based upon timeouts (More...)

What is the difference between Object and Instance?

  
An instance of a user-defined type is called an object. We can instantiate many objects from one class.
An object is an instance of a class.
(More...)
