So, I need to search for a new job again. The thing killed my project.

15 years of Java experience in my resume, I look a like a sterotypical 35 years old programmer, I’m applying for expert roles. But every remote technical interview starts with:
- what is the difference between ArrayList and LinkedList?
- what is a hash map?
The hardest part is to keep smiling to the camera, pretending I don’t have the answer memorized by repeating it for the last 15 years of interviewing, and not rolling my eyes.
And before you ask, I do know what garbage collector is.

    1. under what circumstances is G1 a performance killer?

    2. How can you clear memory in JNI-allocated objects?

    3. What's a mirror API and how/when do you trigger a code consuming it? How do you debug it?

    4. Name at least 1 place where java's [sun http client] libraries disobey http rfc
