Anybody else experience that? Our project consist of around 400.000 lines of source code. It depends also on some big external libraries, like Oracle JDBC and JBuilder libraries (GUI and DX).
Editing of any file in this project is impossible on PowerBook 1.25Ghz, 2GB RAM. I enlarged heap to 512MB, but still too slow.
How slow? When I go to the end of the line and press enter, I need to wait around 10s. Then I type and after 20 characters, line gets updated. Code completition is also very slow.
Even cursor movement is slow. It takes seconds for each move.
I belive it is inspections which are so slow. I ran "Inspect Code" and it seems it took an hour before it displayed results. 30min for sure.
Is it possible to reduce inspections which are done on the fly? Is there any other trick to make IDEA faster?
It does not matter whether java version 1.4.2 or 1.5.0 is used it is always so slow. This powerbook has Mac OS X 10.4.1.
IDEA 4.5.4 seemed to be faster, although it is noticably slower on Mac than on Windows (probably better JVM on Windows).
