it seems that PSI write-operations are/have become painfully slow. I'm currently using
IDEA to do some automated processing of java source code. The modifications are done to
javadoc comments by replace()-ing them with newly created ones. The target classes have
about 300-1200 lines and about 30-90 methods that are to be processed. For the larger
classes it takes about 10-14 seconds to process all methods and their comments which seems
too much for such relatively simple operations.
I've also seen reports* of basic IDEA actions being slow, so this seems to be a general
problem. Is there any way to enhance the performance of such operations?
