    Just Google "Java job interview questions".

    From my experience, the interview is more focused on computer science issues than on a specific programming language issues.
    Meaning, the interviewer is most likely to ask questions about algorithms, data structures and such, and not about a specific reserved word in Java.

    Yes, it's easy enough to discover if the interviewee knows the basics of Java, with a few written coding problems. More important is to try and find out what kind of a programmer they are, how they approach solving problems, how they communicate, how quickly they learn, how conscientious, whether they understand the principles of design, etc. Of course, a lot depends on exactly what they're being recruited for...

    Learning how to learn is life's most important skill...

    One job interview I was asked about what OO meant, what the difference between an interface and an abstract class was, difference / preference between composition and inheritance.

    In another interview I was asked to write a function that would determine when to objects in 2-space intersected.

    As said, you really need to tailor your studying towards a specific job. If you are applying to Lockheed Martin study your math and algorithms. If you are applying to a bank, study up on your core Java, and learn a little about what HELOCs (and other terminology) are.

    Being able to ace all of the core Java questions will always help. JavaRanch has some good Java tutorials and quizes that will help.

    Another thing:
    The purpose of the interview is to understand how you think, how you approach problems and how you handle problems which you don't already know the answer.
    If you answer correctly to a question, the interviewer WILL continue until he will find a question which you don't know the answer.
    Only then, the real interview will begin.
    This is the point where the interviewer really tests your thinking and intelligence.
    So you don't have to b afraid of not knowing everything. You should be aware that the interviewer is testing how you are trying to solve problems youself.

    Yes, indeed - and if this doesn't happen, you should think carefully whether it is the kind of place you want to work...

    Basic Java:
    - what is / structure of: SDK, JVM, Java binary code, Java packages
    - interface and its implementations
    - (reviewers favorite) difference between interface and abstract class
    - Inheritance and polymorphism
    - bucle
    - variable scope
    - differences between primitives and objects in Java, list of primitives you remember
    - recursive algorithms (usually Fibonacci sequence generator)
    - basic algorithms (prime number generator, any)

    Basic Java for Web:
    - servlets
    - http, headers, content types, etc.
    - JSP (don't mention scriplets, companies hate em, say you use JSTL)
    - request and response objects
    - web forms
    - JavaScript basics (at least you should know basic browser events)
    - XHTML basics
    - CSS basics

    Hope this helps.
    In more advanced interviews its about software architecture and related frameworks but I doubt they'd mention that considering the case.

    I had a nightmare last night. I was dreaming that Iím 64-bit and my blanket is 32-bit and I couldnít cover myself with it, so Iíve spent the whole night freezing. And in the morning I find that my blanket just had fallen off the bed. =S (from: bash.org.ru)

    Please don't resurrect old threads.

    Apart from being bad practice if Umen still needs advice on collecting interview questions after 1.5 years then there's no hope for him/her.
