CFBuilder hangs on Large Files


Code Assist or something related to validating code causes CFBuilder to hang on large files. I've tried enabling and disabling most features one at a time and found that when I disable code assist CFBuilder will not hang as much. During the time CFBuilder is hanged the CPU's are maxed. The file is only 1600 some lines long. Having the project connected to a valid server or not does not affect this. Enabling or Disabling the project ColdFusion context does not affect this. I refuse to classify this as a bug with a workaround because one of the major selling points of CFBuilder is Code Assist and to get CFBuilder to work I have to turn off Code Assist.

This happens on multiple computers

To repeat this I simply open a large file and start typing something like "<cfset myvar = " and thats about as far as I get before it hangs.

    This issue had been rectified on Storm and Twister.
    Its working fine now. launching/opening large files does not hangs up the builder.

    I verified this also happens on OS X 10.7.
    I get slightly different issues, but still hanging issues when I try on Win 7 Pro.

    I can recreate this bug with code that runs without issue is production but just kills CFBuilder. This even happens on clean installs of CFBuilder in standalone mode without any plugins.

    Anyone listening?

    Really annoying bug. We are wasting time just closing and opening again

    Our main index.cfm is a giant CFSWITCH some 200kb long and I have to switch to a lightweight editor to make changes in it.

    This really needs to be solved : not possible to work on large files (not that large actually, 1000 lines or more can get you crashed), what eventually happens when maintaining old projects : the IDE hangs on without any possibility to stop it (the only possibility is to force the shut down of IDE itself via OS). I can't work with something that crashes all the time when I'm on projects containing files of 1000 lines or more.

    I am forced to force-quit Eclipse frequently when editing large files. Losing unsaved changes.
