Item Description
Make project before reloading classes This option controls Run | Reload Changed Classes action behavior. If it's turned on, the make process is performed before searching and reloading changed classes.
Enable "JVM will hang" warning If this check box is selected, then, on an attempt to perform HotSwap while JVM is suspended, a warning about the possible hanging of this JVM will be displayed.
Reload classes in background Select here whether you want to reload classes in background mode. This means, all progress messages will be displayed in a status bar.
Reload classes after compilation Use the controls in this area to configure behavior of the HotSwap mechanism.
  • Always - select this option to have classes reloaded automatically.
  • Never - when this option is selected, classes are not reloaded at all because the HotSwap mechanism is inactive.
  • Ask - select this option to have IntelliJ IDEA ask you whether to reload altered classes or not.

In this section, specify the behavior of HotSwap for Groovy:
Item Description
Enable hot-swap agent for Groovy code If this check box is selected, then a special agent will be added to the debugged process in order to enable hot-swap for Groovy code.
If you don't want hot-swap, or this agent is getting in the way, clear this check box.
