    I recently worked on an Android project that had a class of 2000 lines and 4 methods in it... I got to refactor the crap out of it and it was glorious!

    Recently I worked in a project that had all the persistence layer in one class.
    To use it, they'd call from wherever a "new DataManager().GetSomething()".

    The class had 8000 lines of code.
    Btw, it was a one-class project in VS, fml

    Kill me now... existence is pain!

    But seriously, that's way too much code. Time to sit down and refactor!

    800 line-methods... I mean, I've got a project going on with a total number of lines of 5000 or something but everything is beautifully split up (and for the most part, the code is self-explainatory. For the other parts, there are comments).

    In my previous company the core functionality was implemented in a ~1400 lines method(the class had more)...this is about 30 word document pages.... Strangely enough the company was making too much money of this method!

    I've seen 3000 line classes. Also methods with regions in as well. Whenever you are writing a region you should create a method...

    That's cute. I've seen an 8000-line class with its longest method counting 1800 lines. Still have nightmares about that one.
    It also had random function calls.

    I think everyone has such a method tucked somewhere in their nightmares. Mine was in VB.

    I've seen classes with 8000+ lines of code. I am pretty sure some functions where roughly 1000-1200 if not more. I didn't really pay attention. The utility classes had over 7000 lines.

    So much for DRY and SRP!!!

    And this was in Ruby!! You write much less code for the same things as compared to Java!! So if you compare to java, make it 1600 lines!! ;)

    @TomBombadill I puked a little thinking about a 1600 line method in java.
