my colleague's answer to this was the much underrated general performance tip of "buy some more memory" - for cost of memory nowadays, you should consider it.
if memory at its limit, you could use another IDE, or even go to an editor (Jext?), javac.exe, ant ( http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/index.html ) for conditional compilation. if it's any consolation JBuilder 5 uses lots of memory on Windows as well.
cheers, dan.

If memory consumption is a major concern, set the -Xmx parameter in the jbuilder.config file to the required value.
However keep in mind that if you set this to a much lower value, it can affect performance adversely.

How much memory do you have? JBuilder will take up a lot of memory on any system especially if you use the designer (GUI).
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
