I would ask questions like:

Have you worked on a commercial grade servlet app before?
If so, what type of an architecture did it employ?
Can you describe the application for me?
What was your role in the project?

If the role involved making the decisions about how it was built, what made you choose to go that route?
If not, do you know why they built it that way?
How would you have done things differently?

I would then either ask you to write a small servlet that solves a particular problem or present you with some of our (our being the company's) code and ask you if you can walk me through what it does. I may present something that was not optimal and ask if you had any suggestions for improving it. I may also present something with an obvious bug and see if you can spot it.

In short, I would stay away from the pre-canned questions at the end of text book chapters and the kind of questions that get posted in user forums.

I wouldn't be interested in someone who has only memorized the answers to someone ele's interview questions. I would look for someone with experience in server side Java development. A good interviewer can see the difference.

It's impossible for anyone to predict what an interviewer will ask in any type of company. As Ben indicated, you are quite likely to encouner an interviewer that will ask you questions that will make it easy to tell whether answers to "common interview questions" have been memorized, or whether the concepts are truly understood.

Your best bet is to go into the interview prepared to discuss the concepts that you understand, and to be up-front about those that you do not.
