Simple swing application

I've been challenged to figure out what's wrong with this application. It seems to run as intended.

So far, I've came up with the following:

1) The EventDispatchThread is not respected; however, it is highly unlikely to cause an issue with this particular application.
2) The email address in the label and mailto do not match.
3) System.out.println(ex.getMessage()); >> ex.printStackTrace();

has this example anything to do with this:

http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/javase6/desktop_api/

anyways i cant see much wrong but i would change some of the exception types like this:

try {
   URI browseURI = new URI("www.java2s.com");
   desktop.browse(browseURI);
} catch (Exception ex) {
   System.out.println(ex.getMessage());
}

should be:

try {
   URI browseURI = new URI("www.java2s.com");
   desktop.browse(browseURI);
} catch (IOException ex) {
   System.err.println(ex.getMessage());
} catch(URISyntaxException use) {
   System.err.println(use.printStackTrace());
}
