I’ve been spending a bit of my free time reverse engineering an API written in Vaadin.

I can now safely conclude: WHY WOULD ANYONE DO SUCH AN HORRIBLE THING ?! ?! ?!


Sending a form with 7 strings, 3 booleans and a geo location takes 44 HTTP POST requests.

It's easy to trigger a maintenance mode message that takes the server down for 5 minutes a time by reloading the website. I guess it generates new UI session objects each time that accumulate until memory is full and you have to wait for the garbage collector to come around. 🤯
