Must have skills includes Java, Servlets, ORM, DI, some web UI framework like struts or JSF + HTML, CSS, JavaScript. Also some heavily used design patterns like MVC, Delegates etc.

Well I think it has no end. It really depends on the project requirements and your role. The above mentioned skills are needed in almost every projects. The Developer role comes with a hidden clause of learnign something new in every few weeks and to keep on updating yourself.

Best wishes for a good career.

JDBC or JPA.

I think there is a distinction between a junior developer and an entry level developer. I expect the later is going to know less going in.

If you are into Java/J2EE Technologies, Basic of Java,Servlets,Jsps, JDBC and a lot of learning attitude.

Strong Core-java skills is sufficient, rest you will learn as you start working in projects

Additionally I'd like to see a project the person worked on. It can be an internship or volunteer thing, school project or even just a simple app developed at home. Just something of a non-trivial complexity that the person can speak to.

Jeanne Thanks for you response ..
But i didn't get that..
Are you trying to say that, the set of skills/knowledge required (from an entry-level-java-developer) is always dependent on the "project" they are assigned to and there are no specific skill-set required in General(from every entry-level-java-developer)

Thanks in Return ..

For entry-level? Skills are irrelevant. Aptitude is everything.

Cheers!

Well said Luke. For entry level, I expect the person to know Java and have to done enough to indicate he/she will learn quickly.

For junior (a year or two of experience), I expect the person to show they have learned and have more skills.
