Return to Anti Pattern Project page.

Let's list anti patterns here....

Pattern MODEL This contains a list of possible pattern facets. To use this as a template you'll need the wiki "source code." Click edit on the Pattern MODEL link and you'll see the possible pattern "facets" with lots of "mark-up" information, mostly a lot of equal signs. COPY that text and back out of the Editing Pattern MODEL page using the back arrow on your browser. You can then edit any of the anti-patterns in the list by clicking the Edit link under Views and then PASTING the marked-up information from the MODEL page. You can then add any information you want to the anti-pattern in the appropriate location.
