Netbeans 6.0 trunk
February 16, 2008 Leave a comment
For last week or two I am using Netbeans 6.1 from trunk and the only thing I can say is WOW! Guys really made this thing rock! It’s fast, damn fast when working on large project and I mean really huge ones (at work I am working on Windchill and I really know what is a big java application. If you don’t know what Windchill is visit www.ptc.com and see for your self that this can make your ide sloooow). Startup time, code completion, Go To Type dialog, all this is much faster than in regular 6.0. Of course I am using some speedup options in netbeans.conf 🙂 but all of them were already used in my 6.0 installation. Currently it is something like:
“-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms64m -J-Xmx300m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-XX:MaxPermSize=200m -J-Xverify:none -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -J-XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -J-XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled -J-Duser.name=’Marek Piechut’ -J-Xoptimize -J-XX:CompileThreshold=100 -J-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true –laf com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel”
Uff, that was a long one ;-). Feel free to add some of them in your config (and don’t hestiate to comment what were your results). And most important, it’s not very buggy. It usualy makes good job and does not crash very often ;-).
