"It's all well and good saying that you have 10 years experience in Java. "

Indeed.

My favorite job interview was a second one (after HR had confirmed I didn't drool on the carpet or attack people at random).

"Here's your login details, the machine, the language manuals and your programs function description. We'll be back in two hours. If it runs you get the job."

Only time I'd ever seen such an interview technique. Yes, it took some effort to set up, but the employer soon gets to separate the workers from the BS merchants.
