Description Miloslav Metelka 2012-12-18 14:34:00 UTC
As pointed out by Vladimir there can be tasks that traverse document's content (e.g. a lexer's tokens) and take several hundreds of ms. Such task may block document modifications. We should establish a mechanism for identifying such tasks.
Comment 1 Miloslav Metelka 2012-12-18 15:05:15 UTC
Although AbstractDocument.readLock() and writeLock() are protected final, the render() and runAtomic() could be enhanced with the execution time checking functionality.
I propose to support configurable thresholds e.g.


Exceeding the thresholds would report the problematic thread's stack. What do you think?
Comment 2 Vladimir Voskresensky 2012-12-18 15:26:08 UTC
Mila, Configurable properties are great. We'll run our responsiveness test with different values then.
Comment 3 Martin Balin 2016-07-07 07:29:05 UTC
This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
