What is slow? JRuby or Mingle?

I have been testing Mingle, the new tool from Thoughtworks to manage Agile developments. The application really looks promising, and have a lot of new features that I’m discovering, but it’s taking me more time than I expected because it’s slow, very slow.

The guys from Thoughtworks claim they have built the first JRuby commercial application. Probably true, but the price they have paid is high. The application is slow, and it’s slow even on a 2.8Ghz 2Gb Server. I have checked the default configuration and heap size is set by default to 1 gig. Not too bad for an application being use by a single user…

I hope they make some changes to improve the overall performance of the application. It’s not very ‘Agile’.
