Are other people experiencing an increase in the time required to instantiate simple beans with the new upgrade to 1.2-RC2? It is now taking roughly 15 seconds to instantiate a singleton bean which used to be sub-second.
The bean definition looks like this:
<bean id="Test" class="some.org.unit.junit.HibernateTestBean" singleton="true">
<ref bean = "sessionFactory"/>
It also seems to be using more memory than before and after running several JUnit tests we are running out of memory (new behavior).
