As for front end vs back end. I suggest that you keep things simple when you are programming.

I know that design is not for everyone, but there are free open source designs out there which you can use. I'd suggest that were possible you add in design/colors/images at the end.
Be sure to give credit for the design where it's due and let your potential employer know that you would rather the back end instead of the front end so they know what to expect.

Sure, ill take that into consideration.

How could you rate yourself as anything other than entry level with no work experience?

ok, thank you.
Any other advices?

I know Java 8, Java EE (Servlet, JSP and Spring), Hibernate, JUnit, Gradle, GIT, Kotlin, JavaScript, MySQL and probably some other stuff too.
Java 8 is what i know most about (Have known Java since version 1.5).
I have no work experience. And i am trying to find a good job.
The current step that i am thinking of taking is to create a project(s) and publish it(them) to github.
However, I don't know of what should i include in this project and what shouldn't i include.
For example, i am not familiar with microservices (I have read online about it but, never actually created such a system). Should i start attempting to learn microservices before attempting to upload some code to github, or should i just write what i already know (a big monolithic web app).
What are my odds to land a job as a java backend developer for both cases?
Considering that i don't like to remain unemployed (Learning microservices/or-similar-new-technologies before landing a job or uploading code to github).
How do i rate myself? Junior? mid?

The video is about exaggerated job listings.
Any additional advises on how to tackle this issue?

How relevant or accurate is this right now?

I know some java and some very basic Spring WebMVC.
I would like advises regarding which front-end technologies to learn.
I have found out that there are basically 2 basic types of front-end libraries/frameworks. A) Server-Side Rendering B) Client-Side Rendering.
Which ones should i choose from for each of the previously mentioned types. (Will they work together?, what should i consider?)
Better performance, debug-ability and tooling are preferred.

What technologies, frameworks and tools should i learn to become an enterprise java application developer (good one)?
I know java basics and right now i am trying to study Spring as well as some other technologies.
Interesting, I ran it without the relocations part and it worked. and jar contained all the dependencies (as well as the transitive dependencies) by default.

There is no Main-Class tage, it's mainClass.  I'm not sure you need the manifestEntries tags either.

For some reason, i didnt see that post earlier.
Anyway, I removed/commented the manifestEntries and added the mainClass. Still, didn't work.

forgot the "-jar". After adding it, still doesn't work.

You can use the -X or --debug flags when executing mvn on the command line.  If you use the Eclipse IDE, I can give you instructions for how to do that too.

I'm using IntelliJ Idea (Ultimate if that matters).

I can't find an edit button.

So, consider this as a part of the main topic.

What i mean by "didn't work" is this

I am currently attempting to learn maven build tool.
I made an example project which have a dependency and a transitive dependency.
Then i want to create/build/install a jar file (uber-jar) which should be able to run independently.
My search has lead me to Apache Maven Shade Plugin
I attempted this Apache Maven Shade Plugin - Executable JAR but for some reason it didn't work.

Here is my pom file.

For the sake of completeness, here is the example project's source code

I also want advice on how to be better with maven and be able to debug maven issues properly, I have attempted to study Maven by Example, what else do you recommend?
