1. Log on to another computer, e.g. using ssh,
2. run NetBeans with new user directory.
The window is grey for ages.
3. Uncheck the "Show On Startup",
4. close the welcome screen,
5. exit the IDE.
Re-run the IDE, main window is painted immediately.
Tomas observed the problem, cc'ing him.
fixed in core-main - i enlarged the background images to decrease the count of paint operations
Verified. Thanks for immediate fix.
i think this is a good candidate for some 6.1 patch...
Yes, can we please get the fix into patch 2?
marking as candidate for patch2
*** Issue 124523 has been marked as a duplicate of this issue. ***
I just tried a trunk build and don't see an improvement (I assume proposed fix is now in a trunk build). Xhost'ing is
still virtually impossible due to the start page performance problem. If I manage to uncheck the "Show At Startup'
checkbox, the IDE displays *much* faster and is usable in an xhosted environment.
I will reopen this issue. Has it really been fixed or am I looking at a wrong build?
Also marked this issue with SSIDE. It is important for SunStudio (which is based on 6.1) works in xhosted environments
which is more common in the Unix world.
A ^\ shows that the AWT event thread is engaged in activity that usually requires
synchronous back and forth to the X server.
at sun.java2d.loops.MaskBlit.MaskBlit(Native Method)
- locked <0x48660640> (a sun.java2d.loops.MaskBlit$General)
In the past the start page used anti-aliasing and that was one reason to use
masked blits, but I don't see any anti-aliased fonts on my start page.
thp, what build did you reproduce this issue then?
which is a trunk build from 0521. It is supposed to have the fix, correct? I will be happy to try a different build ....
i check the repository and the fix is there (it was a simple enlargement of images to be painted in the welcome screen)
can QA verify that this issue is really reproducible in the latest builds? thanks
We (Sun Studio) really wants this fixed and added to patch 2. Can QA please look at it?
I've tried in 20080528 custom build and I'm not able to reproduce.
could we verify the fix ? Thanks in advance.
We tested it with pflaska and we were not able to reproduce it with latest development build. We remotely connected from
Mac to linux machine. The repaint of remote IDE was slower than IDE on the same computer, of course. However the Welcome
Screen appeared in 3-4 seconds.
QE has marked this issue as patch2 candidate already. But what do you expect from us, thp? You (as the customer that
wants the fix) reported that the fix doesn't work for you. We think it has been fixed. What now? Could you provide a
measurement, could you profile, etc.?
I'll test one more with almost the same setup but I need to know it.
1, what OS - of both machines
2, what window manager - on both machines
3, IDE = cpp
4, what jdk?
5, how exactly you run the IDE on the remote computer? (we ssh to the linux, run IDE that displayed back on Mac)
6, what internet connection do you use? I can imagine that using dial-up can be slow.
I tried another build: netbeans-trunk-nightly-200805281203-cpp.zip and now I cannot reproduce the problem either. It displays reasonable fast with or
without start page. No explanation why I couldn't get it to work with the other build. I also tried a SunStudio build based on Netbeans-trunk-nightly-
200805281203-cpp.zip and it too displays start page reasonable fast when X hosted. I will close again.
Putting it back to VEIFIED
great, thank you.
Verified by me, pflaska and thp. The issue willbe part of patch2 for NB 6.1
The fix has been ported into the release61_fixes branch:
I too see that it is fixed in the trunk.
removing SSIDE keyword. Fix has been integrated into SS.
