Please refrain from reiterating your request, as explained here. We have lots of other useful tips for asking questions on JavaRanch as well.

Since you are a fresher focus on the projects, the languages you had used in that project and your resume. The questions would basically be the concepts of Computer Science along with whatever you have in your resume. A little research on the company also helps.
All the best

There is no fix pattern or set of question asked at Interviews. (particularly for a fresh graduate - since there is so much to discuss about - your course study, resume, projects, languages you know..and so on)..

Think of it as a discussion rather than a technical interview. Brush up your basics, search on internet and keep yourself updated with new technologies in market (not subjective..but atleast what are they meant for and how it works).

Interviewer is more willing to know your interests and liking..and if you are really willing to work for them and put in extra efforts to learn new things and pace-up quickly to become productive in short frame of time.

All said, I just wish you All the Best..
I agree. Here's the link:
