Which J2EE Technologies

Does anyone know, when J2EE is mentioned as a prerequisite skill for a position, which among the J2EE technologies are likely to be critical?

Sorry, but everything depends on the specifics. The chances are good that you will have to be able to find your way around client-tier (i.e. Servlet/JSP/Struts) if they specify J2EE. But J2EE is a large generic term encompassing a bunch of technologies. Much like Oracle, C++, and Java in this respect.

I agree with Alfred's point, but disagree with his example. I've done J2EE programming for a while and have never done a servlet, JSP or strut (or anything web). My impression is J2EE generally means one of two things: EJBs and/or JSP/Servlets. often times they'll want both. It may also include JMS, JDBC, LDAP, and other APIs, just to name a few.

Thank you both; I'll try to find more out about these positions. I know the Servlet/JSP part (also JDBC) but am just in the process of getting into EJB with Ed Roman's book and possibly the new certification ( I'm aware of the endless debate about whether it helps you get a job, but I really found the SCJP useful in solidifying my knowledge and in saving time looking things up when I'm programming.)

Mark, after 8 months actively in the London job market, I'm under the distinct impression that while the job market seems to be somewhat larger for web tier technologies, salaries are somewhat higher for EJB.
Employers have the fuzziest of ideas of what J2EE actially is, I often find. There are a ton of related or possibly-related technologies which can come under the J2EE rubric. Things like JMS, JDO, JMX, and the JAX* technologies can be included, at least in the employer's opinion. And right now who's arguing?
I find J2EE a fairly meaningless term other than to define the general technology area (i.e J2EE vs dot.net). Apart from that, read for content to see what they really want.

I agree with what Mark and Alfred said, here in India, J2EE often means good knowledge of EJB-JSP, esp EJB.
