'make' is slow when restarting a test

Hi there

When I start a unit test and I restart it with Shift+F10 IntelliJ shows a quite long time the message 'make' at the bottom. Since I made no changes I thought it must be incredibly fast.

A colleague of mine tested that in eclipse and there the restart of that test starts immediately. I just wonder why this happens? What does IntelliJ more than Eclipse at this point?

Thanks in advance for clearifying
Stefan

PS: We run IDEA 13.1.2

IntelliJ does seem a bit slower, even with the following changes, but here's a way to make it a lot faster:

Thanks for reply.

The blog you mentioned notes a checkbox (Use out-of-process build for project compilation) I cannot find in IDEA 13.1.2. Am I wrong?

Cheers

The option has been removed, now IntelliJ IDEA always uses out-of-process compiler.
