"Java monkey" is clearly intended as a (justified) job-function slur,
not an ethnic one.

FYI, there are large software houses in Mumbai and Bangalore that specialise
in suckering gullible North American and European companies into massive
Java-based projects that they then construct on contract, using hordes
of local coders whom you would not want to entrust with languages that 
lack training wheels.
