Netbeans 6.9.1, Netbeans 7 beta, Scanning Projects….

If like me you use Netbeans 6.9.1 as your IDE, you probably already installed Scan on Demand to stop Netbeans choking up while scanning projects…

That (unfortunately) stopped working today.  So I downloaded the 7 beta – this is reported to have much more ‘unobtrusive’ scanning of projects.

Still, my advice, is to install it after work, then let it run overnight….took hours to finish scanning upon first boot – froze up many times, and required Netbeans and javaw.exe to be killed off with Task Manager.

She’s also a bit of a memory-hogger – currently reporting 17% on my CPU’s (AMD Phenom II X6 1055T) and 777Mb Ram.  Maybe that’s just Symfony projects in Netbeans for you.

Makes Windows 7 look like Mother Theresa, and even Vista like a woman-of-not-so-much-ill-repute…
