On a job requirement, they're 10 things required.
You only have 7, what is a reasonable answer to say?
Let's say they want 2 years of Spring MVC when you do not have it or just read a book on Spring MVC.

Part of what drives some of these is the "Bob Replacement" ad. Bob starts working at a company, doing X. Over time, he picks up some different skills and tasks and is doing a little bit of everything. Then Bob decides to leave, and the company puts together a list of everything Bob was doing and combines it with his starting pay and experience.
Then they wonder why they can't find anyone.
subject: Job requirement: not having everything listed.
