I generally ask them to describe the process architecture of WebSphere -- if they don't know (for instance) how many admin servers there are per node, or how cloning works then I don't continue with them. If they know this, then they've probably used WebSphere enough to know their way around.
After that, I'll generally ask standard J2EE questions -- explain how Session Facades work and why you would use them, explain why you would or would not choose to use EJB's in a particular project, explain what the components of an MVC architecture are, etc....

Hi Kyle,
Thanks very much for the reply.
What is the good book to start with which covers WebSphere 4.0. I have gone thru the TOC of your book "Enterprise Java Programming with IBM WebSphere" at I might have missed but I did not see anywhere about the architechture of websphere. It talked about development and deployment of Servlets/JSP/EJB in websphere. But again that is what the title of the book says
Could you suggest any good book or pointers on the net where I can learn more about WAS4.0.
