Algorithms/Data structures
Lists , Arrays , Trees – operations and complexities
One sorting algorithm – implementation + complexity
One searching algorithm – implementation + complexity
Should know when to use what data structure
Stack , Queue – operations and complexities


Collections : Sets, Maps, Lists – operations and complexities
Maps : HashMap , should know how to implement a simple one (using two arrays , example), how it works , hash collisions etc.
Strings : Operations, complexity , immutability
OOP/Generics : Subtype, supertype , what is final , what is static etc.
Exceptions : Runtime, compile time, errors, handling

Other stuff

Any 1 design pattern, where it is used etc.
REST, SOAP : What is the difference, why to use one over another
Authorization v Authentication
Different HTTP status codes , what is client side error, what is server error
JavaScript: What is server side, what is client side, where would you use it.

Advanced Stuff

Threads : Threadpools, synchronization, what is multithreading, race conditions, volatile , how to design with thread safety, maybe pub-sub implementation, locks

To set the tone – you can expect questions similar to below ones during the client rounds.
1. Write a function to randomize a given array of elements (integer/string/any type)
2. Write a program to construct a binary search tree.
3. Given a binary search tree, find the distance between two random nodes.
4. Given a list of string, write a program to find high frequency word in the list.

I would emphasis you to focus on following areas for the client round:
• Java Programming (Write as many program as you can to get yourself comfortable with basic programming constructs)
• Data structures – go through all basic data structures and their ADT & operations.
• Search the internet for problem solving questions and try to solve them yourself. (optimal solution)
