Having a few issues with IDEA 7.0 and editing ant scripts.
First problem is editing my ant scripts inside IDEA is really slow. Even adding newlines I have to wait for something to happen, although its the completion that drags it's heals the most. These aren't big scripts although they do all import a single common script. That's about 400 lines (by far the largest). Editing Java source is acceptable (dual core, 2 gigs memory) but editing the build scripts ouch!
The other issue my be related, I'm using Ivy so I've added the ivy namespace to my build scripts (xmlns:ivy="antlib:org.apache.ivy.ant") but IDEA isn't recognising this and mark it and several Ivy targets as error. This is despite adding the Ivy jars to the classpath of the script? Is this supported and will several taskdefs drag the responsivness inside IDEA down? can I tweak something to bring some performance back?
Never have much luck with taskdefs and IDEA. Is their some trick to making them work? would copying the jars into IDEAs classpath help at all?
