HOWTO: Make IntelliJ + Scala run fast/smooth (i.e. without lockups) on Mac OS-X (This worked for me on both Leopard [10.6] and Lion [10.7]).
2011 15″ MBP w/ a normal 750G HDD and 8GB of RAM
Edit the Info.plist for IntelliJ:
vi /Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ 10\ CE.app/Contents/Info.plist
Find the following line:
And then edit the line below to look like so:
<string>-Xss2m -Xmn128m -Xms512m -Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=64m -XX:+UseCompressedOops</string>
After I did this, the performance on the Scala plug-in became acceptable.
