Crafting a cover letter for a technical position is perhaps ever trickier than crafting a resume for the same. Resume is usually read by the technical personnel to judge expertise in the field, but your cover letter’s recipient could be a non technical person! So what you need to do is sound technical, without using too many technical terms that are not comprehendible by a non-technical person.

To compose an accompanying cover letter for the resume of a java developer, mention all your java related skills in the letter and reflect on how you intend to use these skills for the employing party’s benefit.
