Can anyone point me to resources on how to get the most out of WSAD 5.x. When I used IBM's VAJ, there used to be a good number of tweaks that set the IDE for optimal performance. Anything available for WSAD?

I don't know of a place that lists them, but here are a few that I can think of:
1) Keep your workspace small. Unneeded projects can slow down rebuilds.
2) If you have a really slow CPU, turn off the incremental rebuild. This was a major problem in WSAD 4. It got better in 5, but is something to be aware of.
3) If rebuilding a web project is slow, turn off some of the validators.
