Do you know any open-source Java project that deserves unit tests?

I am planning to see if I can do some more work on test automation. I have discovered that I am pretty good at going into existing code bases and adding tests now. In order to practice, and to have something to demonstrate, I would like to find a deserving open source project that I could add some unit tests to.

The design of the project doesn’t have to be good. As a matter of fact, the worse the design, the more point there is in the exercise. Of course, the project should not have any existing unit tests. And it should be in Java. If I feel very masochistic, I will accept an EJB project, but I am not sure I want that much pain.

Does anyone reading my blog have any suggestions to a project that would be worth the look? Post a comment or drop me a line.
