Java interviews are not technical contests to see who gets the most number of questions right or who knows the flavor of the month framework. It is all about assessing who has the right experience, skills, know how and desire to get the job done. The interviewers have only around 1 hour to judge this from the quality of the answers you provide with good depth, examples, and diagrams.
You never know what you are going to get grilled on: Hot topics are – multi-threading? coding? fixing performance & memory issues? Spring & Hibernate? Java Web services? Big Data, Low Latency …. Each interviewer has his or her pet topic. Good interviewers tend to cover a wide range of topics to judge your experience & analytical skills.
Diagrams make a big difference in grasping & explaining the concepts
