On a bad day, I'd much rather have a programmer who can tell me, x package, or x component we are depending on has an issue, and this is how we fix it, than a programmer who says, "Well, that's not Java, I don't know". Consider another scenario where a person might not know why to use a statement vs. a prepared statement. This of course will be perfectly fine if you're running a closed source shop and have your own framework and language in place, but then you're hiring logisticians not programmers.
Basically a programmer is not allowed to say, "I don't know", only "I'm not sure yet".
