Hi Daniel,

What did you do exactly? Did you just installed Java 7 and switched java_home?

I also had to modify the file /Applications/SQuirreLSQL.app/Contents/MacOS/squirrel-sql.sh to point to the Java 7 binary. It seems that during installation, Squirrel determines your java binary at the time and hardcodes it in the sh.

Subject: Re: [Squirrel-sql-users] sql editor blinks

Hello Roberto,
I have tried with Java 7 as you suggested, but it keeps blinking ... :/

I have SquirreLSQL version 3.5.0 and the java version:

java version "1.7.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b15)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)

It would be really great if the squirrel team could find a solution to this!

Hi Daniel,

I'm having the exact same problem, with the same setup.

I did try the Java 7 JVM and the blink / slow problem is gone, but now the font seems choppy (probably not AA). I did research a bit, and for some reason there seems to be some differences on how java 6 and 7 handle fonts.

Would be great if someone else could shed some light in these issues.

I have started to use SquirrelSQL for a PostGresSQL database and looks very nice! However I have a major problem and I did not find an answer on the web.

The SQL editor blinks a lot each time I add a new line or I select the SQL text.
With one line of SQL is not a big deal, but if I have 20 lines of SQL it takes 5 seconds to refresh the text box!

My specs:
java version "1.6.0_43"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_43-b01-447-11M4203)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server 

SquirrelLSQL Version 3.4.0

I have a mac 64bit retina display.

Do you have any clue what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance,

Daniel Teixeira
