3ds loading much much slower

I recently started to play around with the latest version of JME and noticed a major issue. Loading in my 3ds models takes much longer than it did with my older version. I'm not sure which version I was using since I just made a jar file and didn't update till now.

The only lines of code I've changed to get the latest version to work is the texture loading stuff - going from the texturekey to the resource collector - and changing from

import com.jmex.model.XMLparser.Converters.MaxToJme;


import com.jmex.model.converters.MaxToJme;

By much slower I mean from 30sec load to about 3 min load times.

I think that some have seen issues with resource locating causing slowdowns.  Can you profile at all?

Has there been any update on this? I did an update on the source code and haven't noticed any difference.


Thought I would post a follow up. I switched my JRE from 5.0 to 6 and the loading happens very quickly now. So I dunno what's different in 6.0 but I'd recommend it for people with this problem.
