Hi,

Recently my friend went to Developer role interview. They asked following set of questions which she thinks out of scope for role. She has to work in team of 7 people

1.Suppose if you have 100k Records and 1..n servers in EJB cluster what is the best way to distribute these records.
2.Performance tuning
Can anyone tell me for which roe such as developer(mid level,senior level),architech these are appriopriate.
Thanks

A decision as to whether you need clustering and how you design your cluster is typically done mostly by the team's technical lead.

Performance tuning is for everyone to tackle but, typically, the more senior developers are supposed to be able to contribute the most.

Without better definition of problem and resourses to tackle the problem, you cannot speak. I think they want to see how you address problems and communicate.

Maybe they just wanted the OP to say "those are architectural and operational problems". Its like the old joke:

How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
None, its a hardware problem.
