Towards Benchmarks

Yesterday (05.05.10) I (dsp) was reminded that we don't have many benchmarks for smell detection available. Here is what I'm currently aware of. All the samples contain bad smells although they are not annotated. … and these projects are small. Still it's worth to make a beginning :-).

1) Extracted from the PDF. Made some minor corrections to get it to compile. Permission to publish given by M. Fowler.
2) The authors propose this example as a benchmark!
3) They seem to feel “the urge to add complexity because “someday we’ll need it, I just know it!”, or because “it’s not sufficiently flexible enough” or “we need reusability in our code” or (God help us!) because it’s “cool””. See the blog post.
