I'm trying to switch back to Idea after using Eclipse for the past couple of months. I switched away due to frequent pauses (3-10 seconds) and hangs ( > 10 seconds) during normal operations. I installed Selena build 6951, and it seems to be better than 6.0.x, but I'm still seeing the pauses and hangs (though not as frequently). I'd love to be able to provide additional information to the developers, but I'm not sure how to gather that info. The application is completely blocked when this occurs so I cannot click on the memory or cpu snapshot buttons. Any hints on how to gather more info?
Our project is comprised of the following
~3500 Java source files
~3,500 JSP files
~10,000 JHTML files (legacy JSP-like)
~4,500 properties files
~80 3rd party jar files
