I thought this might have potential as a generalized "How do I interview for an experienced (senior) Java developer?" –  Jeff Atwood Mar 15 '11 at 6:23
Strongly depends on which Java EE technologies you want the developer to use. –  user1249 Jun 3 '11 at 12:16

You really need someone with good/relevant technical skills on your interview panel.

It is all very well asking a bunch of technical questions, but if the interviewers don't really understand them, then they won't know if the interviewee is giving sound answers ... or just waffling.
