A Java full-stack developer needs a diverse set of skills to effectively work on both the front-end and back-end aspects of web development.

Here are five essential skills for a Java full-stack developer:

Java Programming:

Back-End Development: Strong proficiency in Java is crucial for server-side development. This includes expertise in Java EE (Enterprise Edition) or Spring, commonly used frameworks for building robust and scalable back-end applications.

API Development: Knowledge of creating RESTful APIs using this technology is essential. This involves understanding HTTP methods, request/response formats (usually JSON), and the principles of API design.

Front-End Technologies:

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: A full-stack developer should be proficient in front-end technologies to build user interfaces. Understanding HTML for structure, CSS for styling, and JavaScript for client-side interactivity is fundamental.

Front-End Frameworks: Knowledge of front-end frameworks like Angular, React, or Vue.js is valuable for building dynamic and responsive user interfaces.

Database Management:

SQL and Database Design: Understanding SQL (Structured Query Language) is essential for working with relational databases. A full-stack developer should be able to design and interact with databases efficiently.

ORM (Object-Relational Mapping): Familiarity with ORM frameworks like Hibernate can simplify database interactions by mapping Java objects to database tables.

Version Control/Git:

Git: Proficiency in using version control systems, especially Git, is crucial for collaborative development. Knowledge of branching, merging, and pull requests is essential for effective code collaboration.

Knowledge of Web Application Architecture:

Understanding of MVC Architecture: Knowledge of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern is important for structuring both front-end and back-end code in a scalable and maintainable way.

Deployment and DevOps: Familiarity with deployment processes, continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, and basic knowledge of DevOps practices can be advantageous.

In addition to these technical skills, soft skills such as effective communication, problem-solving, and teamwork are also crucial for a successful full-stack developer. The field of web development is dynamic, so a willingness to learn and adapt to new technologies and best practices is an ongoing requirement for any full-stack developer.
