I am looking for entry level Java positions. But, I know only Java and SQL. I know a little bit of Swing, HTML, Data structures and algorithms - could talk a little about the basics, but not really more than that.
I have coded 3-4 serious personal apps in Java. My SQL skills are basic and nowhere near those of a DB developer. I know that most Java jobs generally require - Spring, Hibernate, XML, SQL.
But, I was wondering if there are any entry level positions that could make do with someone who knows Java and SQL.
Are there any entry level jobs/job profiles that could need mainly Java and SQL only ? Is it enough to know Java and SQL very well (SCJP & SCJD level, DB developer
level respectively) to get an entry level position ? Are there any other skills that could make this combination more attractive for entry level positions ?
servlets/jsp - don't see too many jobs that mention those skills. There are a few. Usually its only Spring and Hibernate.
I'm not saying Spring/Hibernate aren't important. I'm saying you should know both. (And if you learn Spring MVC without learning Servlets/JSPs, you are likely to not understand the fundamental concepts. Spring abstracts a lot away.)
