Skills required to become a senior java developer

Java developers must be competitive in their careers, and the skills listed below will help them become in-demand professionals:

1. Java skills

Java developers create a wide range of software, ranging from web applications to desktop applications and mobile apps to cloud systems. Java's capabilities even extend to Big Data apps written in Python. As a Java developer, you should consider the following technologies

  • Principles of object-oriented programming
  • Relational databases such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, and more.
  • Common version control systems like Bitbucket and Git.
  • Using an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) such as IntelliJ IDEA.
  • Front-end web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and jQuery.

2. Software design and architecture

Software design and architecture play a major role in software development processes. As a Java developer, you must be quick to identify and implement the right technology stack and architecture for the application. A good understanding of software architecture will distinguish you from other developers and this skill can help you grow your career.

3. Spring framework 5

In 2020, the Spring framework was used by more than 2000 websites to create Java applications. Spring strives to avoid tight connectivity when classes rely on other classes and interfaces from this framework and does so using explanatory notes. Spring is built on the MVC framework, which has distinct layers for business, operations, business, and representation. Most developers prefer the Spring framework as it is simple, has elegant syntax, object injection capabilities, and comes with automation testing tools such as JUnit 5.

4. Android + Kotlin

The majority of Java developers begin developing mobile applications without first completing the web development phase. Knowledge of Kotlin in developing Android applications gives you an advantage and helps you to stand out. The Android platform is shifting toward Kotlin, which is essentially a modified version of the Java programming language.

5. Unit Testing

As the Java application grows in size, so does the amount of work necessary to support and write automated tests, such as integration tests and unit tests required to launch an application. The implementation and assembly of any Java application takes time. This is where unit testing tools like TestNg and JUnit come in. These frameworks make it easier to write automated tests, provide immediate feedback on passed tests, and have simple syntax. JUnit promotes a "testing first" approach, which increases programmer productivity while also improving codebase stability. This reduces the programmer's workload and debugging time.

6. Principles of SOLID

Object-oriented programming has introduced cutting-edge approaches to application design. Under the acronym SOLID, Robert Martin introduced five principles of object-oriented programming:

  • Principle of Single Responsibility: The main idea is that each class should only be in charge of one thing.
  • Open-Closed Principle: The open-closed principle states that classes, modules, and functions should be extensible but not modifiable.
  • Liskov Substitution Principle: This principle states that superclasses should be replaced with subclasses.
  • Interface Segregation Principle: According to this, interfaces are developed for specific clients and these clients do not rely on interfaces that they do not use.
  • Dependency Inversion Principle: The Principle of Dependency Inversion states that higher-level modules should not rely on lower-level modules.

7. DevOps Tools

Among the top Java skills, DevOps knowledge is required. The Java developer must be familiar with the concepts of continuous deployment and continuous integration, as well as Jenkins' role in both processes. Senior-level Java developers must be well-versed in popular DevOps tools such as Kubernetes, Maven, Chef, Docker, and Jenkins because their responsibilities include implementing coding best practices and creating scripts and manuals.
