Mid level develpment essentials

I have been working with Java for about 3 years now, mostly in the following areas:

Java 4, 5, 6
JSF 1.2 + ICEFaces and RichFaces
Websphere and Process Server

I have some limited experience in Spring, Spring MVC and Struts. I am at the moment pushing my company to send me on the Spring Core course.

My question is, at this stage in my career, which technologies do people recommend I look for next as essentials to becoming a good senior J2EE developer?

Thanks for any help and advice.

Web services (both SOAP and RESTful)
Messaging (JMS)
