Software Developer Ad: Any clue who are they looking for?

Its very funny to look at job advertisements for Software Developers, particularly in the enterprise. Many times those requirements look like are actually written by completely non-technical business managers, who have no clue about what they really need.

And its quite shocking that many IT consultants garnish their resumes to fit to that profile. They get short listed, interviewed and selected to work on those projects. Something, I have been trying hard to understand, but so far, clearly running out of luck.

See a sample requirement I just received:

The requirement says they need an experienced IT Professional with 10 years of solid IT development experience with the following skill set:

"Development Life Cycle, C++, Oracle (SQL & PL/SQL), Java (JDK 1.4/1.5), J2EE , Servlets, JSP, JDeveloper, Client/Server, Intranet, Internet, Multi tier enterprise applications, CVS, UNIX, Oracle Application Server, Twiki, Windows & Unix OS, JDBC, HTML, UML, XML, XSLT, HTML, XMLSpy 3.5 Tools, Schema, HTTP & JavaScript.

Any clue, who are they looking for?
