It depends on kind of development environment you are going to work. Knowing J2EE will be more helpful.

Strong communication skills. This includes being able to converse with enginers and non engineers alike. Written skills are key, including documenting code, writing specs, and writing user and architecture documentation. The ability to understand and premptively raise issues is also key--being able to alert your manager to problems as the first signals arise, instead after the problem has already occurred. The ability to estimate tasks is critical as you plan your work. Also, domain knowledge is helpful in any field.

Depends on your job description. JSP/Servlet alone should be enough to do lot of work.
However it is a good idea to master:

1, JSF for presentation
2, Hibernate, iBatis or JDO for database access.
3, Spring framework for software infrastructure.

4, learn some design patterns
5. learn some OOP
6. be familiar with Apache commons utilities

We love Java programming. It is contagious, very cool, and lot of fun. - Peter Coad, Java Design

Too many people jump into J2EE without understanding the basics. Learn core Java well, it will serve you well in the future.

Other valuable technical skills include:

- testing using JUnit

- scripting (Ant, UNIX shell)



- UML modeling using a tool like Rational Rose

- an IDE like eclipse
