Came across this blog UI Hall of Shame. Here’s a good one: UnClearCase Error.

In the few years I have been writing swing UIs, I myself have come across a few good Swing Hall of Shame candidates.

Once I came across a swing application, with a JTree, a few comboboxes, a couple of radio buttons and 2-3 textareas in the main window. The developer was persisting the state of all components to disk everytime a key pressed event happened. And to add to it, some guys were running the application through the profiler to figure out the performance bottlenecks.
