Over the years I have been a panelist in many of the interviews for Java Developers. I have previously written a post titled  Top 7 tips for succeeding in a technical interview for software engineers which covers few of the general guidelines. In this post I will share a mind map containing general topics covered in a Java developer interview. I have prepared this as a general reference for myself to remember the pointers and to keep a common standard across the multiple interviews.
 

XMind gives a nice listing of the map. You can find the map  here. Here is Image which you can download and use.


Finally here is a old fashioned tabbed content list which is easier to copy paste.
