Idea freezing

Hi,

Sometimes, IDEA just stops responding (and refreshing the screen), leaving me no other choice than killing it using the Windows task manager.

I suspect this could come from the MKS (VCS) plugin i use.
Does anyone know if it is possible (and how) to have IDEA VM generate a core dump ?

A stacktrace will most likely be sufficient for finding the reason of the
problem. To get a stacktrace, run IDEA from the batch file (idea.bat) and
press Ctrl-Break in the console window.

Hello,
May be it is time to think about JMX in idea support? Or in case of freezing it won't help?

Thanks,
Dmitry

this seems a good idea.

The idea.bat script seems to have a mistake though,

According to the script, it assumes
- IDEA_JDK to point to the folder where IDEA is installed (as it is looking for %IDEA_JDK%\jre\bin\java.exe)
- and IDEA_JDK to include a lib/tools.jar file, which is not the case (but there is a jre/lib/tools.jar)

I managed to start after modifying
SET CLASS_PATH=%CLASS_PATH%;%IDEA_JDK%\lib\tools.jar
to
SET CLASS_PATH=%CLASS_PATH%;%IDEA_JDK%\jre\lib\tools.jar
