I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in September 2012.

Interview Details One Technical Screening Round - [On Phone]
Followed by series of face-face technical rounds regarding technology, design approach, algorithm writing, architecture and few aptitude questions. There is no separate HR or negotiation round. This was for oracle ADF team, wherein, questions were mostly based on algorithm, complexity and then inclined towards J2EE frameworks (mostly JSF). The interviewers were very good and I enjoyed the whole process. They released the offer letter after 40 days.

Interview Questions

  • When you are developing a web portal for which contain sensitive information, how should you maintain the session?   View Answer
  • For my previous question I gave the answer to be a combination of session object at the server side and using encoding for securing sensitive information. Then, interviewer asked that, Session object also uses cookies/url re-writing for maintaining the state based on the client browser settings, then how is it secure? as you said that cookies are at client side and URL re-writing has its own problems like following any link to outside application and then coming back to the application which will not have the encoded user state in the URL?   Answer Question
