I guess they meant the island. A job ad came to me via yahoo junit group, asking for 10 years Java. Dosen't give a very a good impression of the company does it - you'd think someone involved in junit would know better.
Deep sigh.........

Well when did java start - 1994 ?
I met people in 1997 who started working with it in tools, Oracle consultants, independent Java consultants. And I'd only just heard about the internet then. So it doesn't seem unusual to me that someone involved in junit has 10 years java.
