Subject [jira] [Commented] (NETBEANS-168) Background scanning process needs a rethink
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2019 15:36:00 GMT


Laszlo Kishalmi commented on NETBEANS-168:

Well, actually it would be good that somebody would take a jdk 12 and profile netbeans with
another netbeans on windows. Until nobody steps up for that, we are just hitting the air.

> 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
