Java Interview Questions and Answers


What is the difference between preemptive scheduling and time slicing in Java Programming?

Under preemptive scheduling, the highest priority task executes until it enters
the waiting or dead states or a higher priority task comes into existence. Under
time slicing, a task executes for a predefined slice of time and then reenters the
pool of ready tasks. The scheduler then determines which task should execute next,
based on priority and other factors.
