Faster NetBeans on Windows...
By vbkraemer on Jun 05, 2008
Folks that work with NetBeans dev builds may have noticed a little bit of a speed improvement in the last couple of days.
I got involved in a thread on the nbj2ee mailing list. The user was seeing terrible performance on Windows while using directory deployment onto Glassfish V2. The user was able to describe their situation in enough detail that I could replicate the problem and fix it.
But after fixing it, I realized that this was a bigger issue. I figure there is about 800 uses of getOutputStream(), spread over 500 files. So, I filed an issue and another engineer (who knows more about that area of the code) fixed it.
As an added bonus... It looks like both fixes will go into patch 2 for NetBeans 6.1.
