I'm currently finding that the current (rather wonderful) eap freezes constantly.. I noticed it was constantly garbage collecting. the effects of this were:
long pauses at cricitcal keystrokes,
waiting ages (sometimes as much as 30-60 seconds) for warning lines to dissaspear for valid code.
I updated my vm settings as follows - it's still pretty painful though.
I have 4gb ram free in my system.. can you give me some setting which will help.. I'm really suffering here..
