Monstrous monoliths – how bad can it get?

I recently posted a survey on twitter asking folks to describe their monolithic application:

So far I’ve had around 12 responses. As of 5/13/15, here are the “winning” answers to each question:

How many lines of code? 2.2M
How many jar files? 418
How long to startup? 12 minutes
How large is the WAR? 373 MB

The ages of the applications ranged from 2 to 13 years.

Do you have some winning metrics about your monstrous monolith you would like to share? If so, fill in this form.
