When I read this resume, my feeling is this guy/girl knows everything, at least, he/she claim he/she does.
This is not necessary good. Even if you really know them all, but you'd better emphasize something important, and ignore something purposely.
My 2 cents...

Thanks Roseanne for your input.
I tried to keep the resume focused on the following (with the same order of importance): java, ood, web and xml. Do you think I am addressing too broad a field?
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
