Facebook Interview Question for Software Developers
- 2of 2 votes
I was asked to design a system on a whiteboard which simulate a executor.- Patrick July 01, 2018 in United States
This system has a method that is being triggered every second. I need to add logic to the method (i.e. run jobs).
There is also a method called job_arrived() that is called when a new job arrives.. I need to implement it as well.
I needed to implement a system which tries to run each job right when it is arrived (it has a return value that gets a success status from a black box service). if the job ran successfully that's the end of it..
if not I need to re-run it after 2 seconds (and if that fails as well - there will be no re-runs).
of course - more than one job can be accepted each second.
I was asked to describes the system (describe the classes and method) and consider the system to be large scale one (meaning.. threading is in order here..).
The answer I gave was apparently not multi threaded enough..
any idea to what I should have done?
