I don't see that as a major problem. Netbeans is an IDE and not a basic editor. How long does MS Office or OpenOffice take to load?

Does NetBean use Swing? That may be part of the issue. Eclipse uses SWT which sits at a level between AWT and Swing and tends to perform better.

Maybe reverting back to NetBeans 5 will help. I tried IntelliJ 6 a while back, and found it too slow to be usable on my main machine (which is a few years old). But IntelliJ 5 runs just fine.

Developers generally have speedy machines with lots of RAM, which is why IDEs tend to make use of (and even require) those features. I wouldn't bet on any future versions to get any faster, although they may offer more features at the same speed.

No. The idea that Swing is slow was true in the days of Java 1.2 and 1.3, but that's long ago. Swing is not noticeably slower than any other GUI toolkit.

The most likely cause is that you have only 512 MB of RAM. Try plugging in more memory in your computer.

NetBeans is not slow once it has started

Although minimal requirement is 512 MB, NetBeans recommends 1 GB of memory.

Get more memory. Its slow to startup, but I only do that once a day. But its big, and can include Tomcat or Glassfish, and other stuff that gets big fast.

Actually, I can't stand Windows at all with only 512MB. I'd go to 2GB, and you'll be a lot happier.

The problem is the memory is only 512 MB. The other problem might be your Antivirus agressively scanned your NetBeans during startup. Try to turn of your antivirus and restart your NetBeans.

My laptop is 1.83 GHz core 2 duo and has 3 GB Memory. It runs fine.

My old laptop is 1.73 GHz centrino and has 1.5 GB Memory. It runs fairly good.

I hope this can help

Try increase the memory to 1GB or more if you can. Then another case is my System Configuration is P4@3.4GHz with 2GB of RAM.In my system too the NetBeans 6.1 took around 8 seconds to load.There is no wonder it's slow for you. Then you may find some nice tutorials online to use NetBeans to code Struts or whatever else. You may find it in netbeans site too.Hope that helps you

Apart from increasing the RAM, if there is a configurable/customizing option of the features while loading the Netbeans, you can probably exclude them to expedite

I guess the only way is to add more RAM. I have 2 GB of RAM and my Netbeans runs just fine. In fact NetBeans 6.1 start up has gotten better compare to NetBeans 6.0. If you have so many modules installed, that's probably the reason why the start up is a bit slow.

I don't see your problem as an major issue. I'm having major problems with Netbeans 6.1 however.

My machine is a 2.13 Ghz core 2 due, with 4 GB RAM. When starting Netbeans I can expect an upstart time at 51 MINUTES!!! That is a new known recort.

What can possible be the reason for that?? I have heard that some chache filen can build up and cause it to slow down. The thing is that the entire system is only 2 months old and worked fine when fully installed. All other applications are running fine, only Netbeans are causing problems.

I suspect network timeouts. But you can verify this by taking a few thread dumps during startup.

Are you running a clean install of NeatBeans, or have you added any plugins? If you have added plugins, I suggest reinstalling NetBeans and ensuring that a clean install starts in a decent amount of time. Then add plugins one at a time, starting up up after each one - that should help isolate which plugin has an issue.

Can you please specify what you mean? I do not understand what you want me to do. What is "thread dumps"? And when to run them??

During computer startup or Netbeans startup?? And why is it that it builds up over time but works just fine when installed??

Some plugins are installed, I'm not too sure what. But a network timeout is not out of the question. When Netbeans chrashes our F-secure sucks resources, but disableing F-secure has no effect.
