Hello, I've been browsing this Java Development forum a lot lately and noticed that just about everyone recomends Eclipse. I tried Eclipse about a month ago on my 1.33 GHz PowerBook G4 with 512 MB Ram and it was so slow I couldn't bare it. Shouldn't my powerbook be fast enough to run this program? It was slow to compile, slow to accept keystrokes when typing and worst of all, It was extremely slow when resizing any of the frames. I trashed it after about half an hour of trying to use it. I was just curious if anyone else has had a similar problem or if there is a solution. I wouldn't mind giving eclipse another try if it could run decently on my mac. In the mean time I've swithced to Borland's jBuilder 2005 Foundation. Which is also free. I actually like it a lot. jBuilder has some of the neat features that Eclipse has like code folding, Code insight (autocomplete) and correcting syntax errors on the fly. So if anyone else is having trouble getting Eclipse to work well on their Mac jBuilder is a nice alternative.
By the way. Sorry if this has been addressed on the forum before. I tried searching a couple of times but kept getting an error.
