During a JavaOne session today, Linda DeMichiel, Sun’s EJB specification lead, said the EJB 3.0 experts group wants to make writing EJBs easier so that even “corporate developers” could write EJBs.

Yesterday, I heard a Sun person say one of the goals of Java Studio Creator is to allow “corporate developers” to write Java web applications.

Do corporations just hire less-skilled developers? Or does something happen to a developer when he or she joins a big corporation?

Update: Since my attempt at irony didn’t come across after three hours of sleep, I want to point out that corporate developer is an unfair term when what is meant is lesser-skilled developer.
