    Default Slow all of a sudden.

    For some reason, Java has magically slowed to a crawl over the course of the past couple of days. And I mean really slow; doing anything in Java has become very, very tedious.

    All Java applets are affected. It's mostly with UI building; even showSaveDialog() takes a long time to load. And by a long time, I'm talking 12 seconds to build a list of three items out of four in a folder.

    It has nothing to do with the jar or those who programmed it. It happened, as I said, pretty suddenly.

    The only thing I've done between now and when it was not horrendously slow is play around with wxWidgets. I installed Code::Blocks (a C++ IDE) and compiled the wxWidgets DLL, but I seriously doubt that has anything to do with why Java is acting up.

    java version "1.6.0_07"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode, sharing)

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I don't have any experience like you explain here with the version. 07 it the latest version I use and there is no much different in execution speed with earliest versions.

    May be a hidden process running on your machine, after build up that DLL. I'm not sure but it can be. Did you check such a thing?

    Is this cause only on Applets?

    This is going to sound bad, but as suddenly as it started, it stopped acting up again. I really have no idea what caused it. I'm thinking perhaps it may have disagreed with one of the programs I've had open today; to be specific, a 3D imaging program. I'll run some tests on that, but it seems to be the problem.

    Edit:
    I can't seem to recreate the problem. I've tried opening everything else I've had open today... even when ran all together, Java remains speedy as usual. I didn't restart, nothing has changed...

    I'll see if the problem returns, try to isolate the problem and see where it goes from there. Thanks anyway, and sorry for bugging you.

    It's ok man, I'd like to let you know what I have. :)

    As I said earlier it should be some issue/effect from other program you are use in the PC. Hang on with some testings and see the difference.

    Do you work on Windows platform? If so the easiest way to find this is, open the Java IDE you use and deal with latest modification programs and do some testings. At the same time keep in touch with the process memory usages in the task manager.
