Hotswap is sloooooooooooow

In my project whenever I recompile a during a debug session, the "Hotswap: " dialog pops up and blocks the machine for more than a minute?! CPU usage is near 100% and memory consumption goes up drastically.

Come on, I can restart my application in less time!
Am I the only one seeing this performance bug?

The ironic thing is that only after those 1 1/2 minutes is Idea asking if I really want to hotswap.

Might have to do wight the number of modules (30) and dependecies (very many) between them in my project.

I haven't seen any problems with hot swap, it takes no time at all. Granted, I don't have the complexity of your project. I just have 1000+ classes in an EJB Module.

Is it new problem or you had the same behaviour in older builds?
Could you please go to the IDEA console window and press Ctrl-Break to get a
thread dump and send it to us? (Please submit a request into the tracker and
put the thread dump there.)

Thanks for the reply!
Previous builds were much faster but that might be because I used only a single module.

I filed a tracker entry:

This is starting to look great.

Slow Hotswap is fixed.
Slow debugging is fixed.
Slow JUnit is fixed.
Slow completion is fixed.

Keep up the good work!
