However if you are Java programmer and you claim if you know how to use the beast then you must know how to use it in real world and not just in the programming contests —and that means you should understand when real-world implementation are likely to need memory and when they tend not to need it.
You clearly have no idea
how complex modern JVMs are. That's bordering on impossible, particularly with the server-mode JVM: you can never tell when the optimizers will kick in.
Interview process imitates work process in miniature. Someone who's genius and can solve any problem if you'll manage to formulate it precisely enough but will write code which will destroy your whole project if you'll miss one minute detail is someone who's just to dangerous to have around.
In a work situation, you have context -- you are normally formulating and answering these questions yourself
, or if helping someone else you both have a common goal in mind. That context defines the level of problem and solution to aim for (that sort of experience is perhaps the
major difference between experienced and inexperienced programmers). In an interview, you have no such context -- substantially more precise questions are thus called for.
