Subject [jira] [Commented] (NETBEANS-168) Background scanning process needs a rethink
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 20:10:00 GMT


Christian Lenz commented on NETBEANS-168:

In the ui.log (Which I also attached) you can see some javascript2 module stuff. This happens,
because before restart of NetBeans, I had 2 PHP projects opened in the IDE, but I closedd
them, because of a known stack overflow, but this is really not the problem. NetBeans still
doing Background scanning.... and when I click on it, I see that he is indexing or scanning
the incubator-netbeans folder. So please have a look into the logs, there should be now everything
inside, what you need. And Steps to reproduce are above.

>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: ide - Performance, java - Platform, platform - Execution
>    Affects Versions: 8.2, Next
>         Environment: NetBeans 8.2, Windows 10 x64

>            Priority: Critical
>         Attachments: messages.log, ui.log
> Often, while cloning, switching branch, merging, opening etc. etc. NetBeans starts Background
scanning for changes, but it is not real background, because everything what you want to do
then, like changing the branch, commit, push, pull, open project, delete or whatever, is blocking
by this task and you can't cancel it, because it is essential.
> Either we need to rethink about this process like to make everything or most of the stuff
doing things in parallel or the task should really be cancelable. It is a pain in the ass
for big projects when they start to scan for changes. 
> It is a real world case because you acan see it when you work on NetBeans modules.
> Cheers
