Speeding up NetBeans Scanning
By Darryl Mocek on May 25, 2012
If you've ever experienced slow scanning while using NetBeans, as I have, I suggest you give one of the 7.2 daily builds a try (http://www.netbeans.org, click the 'Download FREE' button, click on the 'Development' link near the top right, and choose the download option which works for you). One of 7.2's features is background scanning, which does just what the name says. I have found it significantly improves the user experience as it relates to scanning...much less time is spent "waiting" for the scanning to complete. Version 201205250002 works very well, although I don't see a way to pick a specific dev build. If you get a build with a problem, try again later when a newer version is released. This upgrade is definitely worth while.
