Java for Managers -- What Should They Know?

Which Java technologies do developers think that managers should understand better...

Last month, JavaBlackBelt completed a survey where developers said their teams would be 25% more productive if their management committed to skills management... which led me to consider:

Which Java technologies do developers think that managers should understand better in order to make great decisions about skills management?

I'll suggest, as a start:

-- Java SE and EE basics
-- ORM's (Hibernate, ...)
-- Web Frameworks (lStruts 2, ...)
-- IDEs (Eclipse, ...)
-- Source Code Mgmt
-- Testing Methods
-- JavaScript
-- Ajax

Very open to your thoughts, and who might find such a course useful... feel free to comment here and/or send email to java4managers@globalforcedirect.com.
