    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    No, but letting everyone know where else a question is asked is considered good manners.

    I've never used Hadoop, so I wouldn't call that "important".
    I've also never used JSF.

    If you're talking about web apps, then knowing how they fit together is important, but that doesn't necessarily mean Tomcat.

    So:
    Spring (it's big, but knowing the basics will help)
    A Servlet Container (eg Tomcat) and how to deploy.
    The underlying architecture for web apps (eg servlets and JSP).
    Modern web app design (eg web services and Ajax calls from the front end instead of full page refreshes).
    Databases...ie JPA, JDBC, and how to wire it all up.

    The rest is design.

    ETA: Oh yes, one or more testing frameworks, probably around JUnit.
    Which brings up understanding different development styles, like various kinds of agile, TDD, pair programming.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    JSF is probably a yesterday's news if you ask me. For Spring focus on Spring MVC and the RESTful API's plus the accompanying design (html, Javascript, JSON, AngularJS), I think this is the big trend.
    I always thought that knowing one API that everybody has read about, but nobody has used yet, helps. It makes you stand out from the average applicant. NoSQL databases come to mind -> MongoDB has a slick Java API.

    Think of a JSP page as an html page that accepts Java code. You'll run across it when you do Spring MVC.

    There are lots of Java derived technologies (Struts, JSP, JavaFX, etc) or some technologies that just happen to use Java, C# or C++, etc. So perhaps this question is best couched in terms of a particular field (web hosting, search engine design, database, software development tools, android apps).

    But since I don't write software for a living I can't provide an answer.
