jEdit 5.1.0 w/ JRE 1.8.0_05 + W7 64-bit = slow exit from jEdit?
Submitted by Phrawm48 on Thursday, 24 July, 2014 - 00:25
For:

· jEdit 5.1.0
· Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.5-b02, mixed mode)
· java version "1.8.0_05" (JRE Cool
· Windows 7 64-bit

On my W7 64-bit computer, jEdit 5.1.0 runs fine, but when I exit jEdit it takes 20+ seconds to finally close. This behavior is new after my recent update to my JRE8 / Java SDK on this computer.

On my Windows Vista 32-bit computer, jEdit runs fine AND exits / closes straight away. This is true even though I updated the JRE to the same version as the one on my 64-bit computer.

Has anyone seen this? I've tried re-installing jEdit but otherwise have no ideas. At this point I simply close jEdit then minimize its window so that it's out of the way until it finally closes.

Cheers & thanks,
Riley

Slow shutdown seems to be 64-bit JRE -- 32-bit closes immediatel

I today installed a 32-bit JRE8 alongside my 64-bit SDK8 / JRE8.

The problem of slow shutdown of jEdit 5 disppeared.

So it seems the problem is related to the 64-bit JRE8...

Cheers & hope this helps,

Other programs that use the same JRE exit normally

Incidentally, other programs that use the same JRE — Eclipse Luna, DirSyncPro, and so on — do NOT exhibit slow shut down.

Cheers & hope this helps,
