    What does it take to be a fullstack Java developer?

    A frequent need in modern professional Java technology world is a full stack Java developer. All technology companies are bullish on full stack developers in order to save big bucks. How can one become a full stack Java developer, a question which lingers with who has just started get his/her feet wet in the technology.

    The answer is straightforward : one has to look after all technical building components which are responsible for making an enterprise level solution i.e. presentation layer, application logic layer/server side programming for application logic and data logic layer.

    A fair hands-on knowledge of following pieces in order to be a full stack Java developer:

    1. Web Front-EndHTML, CSS, JavaScript.  Learn about responsive UI and UI frameworks. Learn JavaScript based MVC frameworks like AngularJS. 

    Another one is Bootstrap Javascript which is a free and open-source CSS framework, containing CSS- and JavaScript-based design templates(optional) for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components. It is used for responsive, mobile-first front-end web development. 

    2. Server Side programming: which provides Java Enterprise frameworks for Web development (ServletsJSP, JSF) and/or other Java frameworks like Spring, EJB

    3. Data Logic Layer EndFrameworks like Java ORM Frameworks (Hibernate, JPA) or create your own database ecosystem using helper classes with the DAO Pattern. JDBC fundamentals and its practical usage must be known.

    The idea is to leverage multiple skills from a single individual for efficiency(cost, time, quality) and get work done on lean principles. 

    It in not necessary that full stack developer skills should be the ultimate goal of one's tech journey rather attaining multiple skills with fair level of competency and flexibility in breadth of jobs and roles available.
