Interview Questions

Have you got the time to read 10 or more books and articles to add value prior to the interview? This section of my website is for the Java/J2EE job seekers and interviewers. There are numerous books and articles on the market covering specific topics like Java, J2EE, EJB, Design Patterns, ANT, CVS, Multi-Threading, Servlets, JSP, emerging technologies like AOP (Aspect Oriented Programming), Test Driven Development (TDD), Inversion of Control (IoC) etc. But from an interview perspective it is not possible to brush up on all these books where each book usually has from 300 pages to 600 pages. 

The basic purpose of this section of my website is to cover all the core concepts and design/coding issues which, all Java/J2EE developers, designers and architects should be conversant with to perform well in their current jobs and to launch a successful career by doing well at interviews. The interviewer can also use this to make sure that they hire the right candidate depending on their requirements. This section contains a wide range of topics relating to Java/J2EE development in a concise manner. 

This shall assist all Java/J2EE practitioners to become better at what they do.  Usually it takes years to understand all the core concepts and design/coding issues when you rely only on your work experience. The best way to fast track this is to read appropriate technical information and proactively apply these in your work environment. It worked for me and hopefully it will work for you as well.
