I just switched to the JDK 1.2beta2 compiler when starting coding for a new project. (I want to use some new features of JDK like extended fonts support and Swing graphics components.) The problem is that the compiler seems very slow compared to JDK 1.1.x compilers or any other compiler I have used. (Which mens the one that comes with JBuilder.) Is this slowness a beta future or do I have to buy a faster computer.
So, anyone else experienced this slowness and is there anything to do about it? Will the "real" release be faster? What is the news from Sun?
