Hi,
I am going to have an interview next week re a position for the web board. The guy told me they need the JSP & Servlet skills. I am also going to show him the working samples per his request. What kind of questions can be expected from the interview?
Thank you in advance!
Frances

If possible, research the company to see what they specifically develop, and use that as a basis. If you know the names of any of their developers, try searching the web for them to see if they've posted questions on boards like this.
You may want to demonstrate knowledge of Struts, and MVC architecture in general. It is not a written test, so they are more likely to ask you general concepts like "Why would you use this approach, and why wouldn't you use it?"

1) What is difference between Servlet and JSP?
2) How is session maintained?
3) signatures of HttpServet (talk about doHead & impress them)?
4) init() method.
5) Accessing session in jsps?

You should also be able to answer:-
what appserver are you most familiar with?
what are the biggest problems you had with that appserver?
(i.e. are you a space cadet?)

1) what is the difference between request forward and request including?
2) Custom JSP tags?
3) How JSP gets executed.

- I would look at notes for SCWCD Exam and go with that.
- Definitely know MVC Architecture - and be prepared to write about it on white board at interview.
- If you know Struts - then review it - if not - it's not a big deal.
- Know about Servlet & JSP lifecycle - you may get hit with this. Be able to write a basic servlet from memory.
- Know about sessions - both for servlet & jsp.
