A lot can be learnt about the Java ecosystem by analyzing the publicly available stack traces. We can get surprising insights by asking a few simple questions and answering them.

  • How many java stack traces are there?
  • What is the most common stack trace?
  • How long is the longest stack trace?
  • Which module has the most stack traces?

Each question raises a number of follow-up questions

  • When do we call two stack traces the same?
  • Why is a stack trace so frequently searched?
    • Because its library is so popular or rather because it’s so buggy?
