    Smile Need help with "a simple order entry program"

    Hello everyone,

    I received a phone call from a recruiter today and they're now filling a position as Java Developer. He then sent me an email about an interview agenda, as listed below. I believe it will be a week later. Since I was not involved in a lot programming but have read some basics about Java, and because I really need a job right now, I am turning to here to ask help from you guys.

    The interview includes a hands-on development session to create a simple order entry program for a company. The detailed requirements are here. So can anyone provide an example of the code and/or a brief explanation of the programming? I would like to thank you first for your time and kind help!


    Using JAVA, create a simple order entry program for the XYZ company. The program must be started and completed on site. No GUI is need - a command line program is fine. The user can determine how data persistence is handled but an ORACLE database will be made available.

    Create login and validation area.

    Query for an item.

    Add an item.

    Query for past orders.

    If you require a special set of tools please let us know.

    So let me get this straight, you don't know how to do this, and are asking us to help you cheat so you can get a job that you are obviously not qualified for? What am I missing here? Out of the best interests of your potential co-workers, I refuse to participate in this farce. Best of luck.

    Kind of annoying job interview for me.

    As Fubarable says, if you don't know those things how can you work on in your position in that company. According to your question, it's completely related with databases. Lots of things have to do. So you want to cheat in interview with those things. Even you found a solution on the web or somewhere else, what you going to do if interview panel ask a question about this?

    I understand. Thanks for the input by you and Fubarable. I will learn as much knowledge as possible these days, at least trying to have an idea of what the program is about and give it a shot. Plus, I know what cheating is and will not go for the interview with the answer from other people. That, as you have said, will be humiliating.

    Maybe going for another degree in CS is a good idea these days when you try to find a nice job :)

    No need to do another CS degree pal. Only thing you have to do is pick all basis in right way. I'll give some hints, if you can just search them on the web and try to get an idea.

    First of all you need to open a database connection to you application. I mean attaching a database to your application. Then how to open a data set, how to make a query and execute it. All your steps depends on those events.

    That's super, Eranga! All things begin with learning and helpful guidance by others, and thank you very much for offering the advice. I'll work on it right away. cheers~
