Description _ ttran 2002-08-16 21:34:01 UTC
The users often complain that NetBeans is
sluggish.  This is often considered a performance
problem which is not correct.  What the users care
about is the perceived performance, not raw numbers.

We need to review all frequent UI actions and make
sure they are responsive enough.  In many cases
what we need is to change the way NetBeans
responds to the user action, not necessarily to
make the current way faster.  Sure in some cases
an optimized code is needed too.

The work must be done in the platform as well as
in modules.

 The most irritating "slow response", especially for me who is 
used to Kate (text editor in Linux KDE3) and has had me shy away 
from NB, IS; 
Opening a java class that starts the Form Editor. 
First time is killing (15sec) but subsequent opens are just as

These issues are planned as Sun's "must have" contribution to NetBeans 4.0 and
are considered to be "high level" issues. That is why changing the type to
FEATURE and priority to P1.

Mostly done, I guess. At least it is completed enough to claim success, isn't?
