I tried out Joshua Marinacci’s recent
Netbeans on Mac Tip
(different GC setting) and it worked like a charm. I suspect that this ought
to be the default
setting for NetBeans on most systems. I talked to a NetBeans insider in
Prague and he mumbled about hard-to-reproduce weirdness with this setting on
previous NetBeans & Java releases, but I haven’t seen a single hiccup.
It turns out that on the AMD64 systems, lots of people are running more or
less everything Java in
-server mode. Hmmm.
