The problem is that Java's GUI (whether Swing or AWT) wasn't really designed for having heavy loads thrust upon it, to the extent that there is a major bottleneck in the form of the AWT Event Queue.
In fact, there's a discussion about the issues surrounding AWT threading, and in particular one of my vociferous bugs in 4030718 regarding the retarded behaviour that 1.2 and 1.3 had forcing to be used with any GUI apps.
(Nice to see that they've implemented a fix in 1.4, though not using my more elegant implementation suggested in the bug report). They removed when moving from AWT to Swing (because Swing was -- and still is -- hideously slow) as a mechanism to speed up redraws, but then they needed to ensure that threading race conditions didn't kill the UI performance.
The Java GUI needs to be exited before installing the EEB.Project snapshot tags named x.xx-SNAPSHOT have been signed with the following public key.Users who are less experienced with working on a command line, may instead use this quite-user-friendly installation guide and usage guide.THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT.
