Any suggestions on what else I can learn to enhance my Java knowledge-base?

Greetings Experts,

I'm a fresh engineering graduate and I'm currently pretty well versed with core Java, JSP, Servlets and the like. I'm looking to expand my knowledge-base while keeping a java-centric base to my skillset.

Could you help push me in the right direction by suggesting what you think I could focus on learning?

Pardon my vagueness here, but that is exactly one of the reasons I'm asking this question!

Thanks a lot for your quick responses. I did some reading up on SEAM and figured it would be good to get EJB and JSF under my belt before I look at it. As a framework, how do you think SEAM would figure when compared to Spring or Struts?

Well I figured the following flow to be suitable for me at the moment:

Struts 2 --> JSF --> Spring --> Hibernate --> SEAM

Thanks for the help.
SEAM makes it easier for you to link the EJB code to your JSF code, and allows you to use bean scopes (Application, Session, Conversation and Stateless).
