This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I think some basic knowledge should we possess about how those things work.

Hmm.. I too thought so. The thing is that, I read a couple of technologies and I read a lil in depth about them. As I have not worked on them, I tend to forget the details. And as used I mention them on the CV(as technologies I have self studied), I needed to re-read it every time. I did this a couple of times and then.. stopped mentioning them on the CV.
At the end of the day, I have not worked on them. So no hard feelings to cut them from the CV and save myself in front of a Guru in an interview. But how do I highlight that I 'know' them somewhat and can take it further if needed for some job?
Right now I have stopped doing this. If I get time to read about any new technology, I do it for myself. And mention something on CV if I do work on it.
This is really a great topic of discussion and there may be many answers depending of personal choices.
As Java is very wide spread to cover the technology needs for variety of domains and Sun has done great job to divide it into 3 major categories. Standard, enterprise and Micro. I believe when one put himself/herself into IT market as an expert in particular domain with master level knowledge of a highly coupled bundle of 2-3 technologies and awareness of related technologies it satisfies the employer�s hunt for techie in desired areas. Remember once you put a bigger number in experience section, the person interviewing you expect more than just API's or syntax like the solution approach, design and other work mentioned in your resume.

I have more experience in Advance Java. As I have worked lil on Standard Java, I wonder if I do not know the 'real' Java.. :roll:
