Eclipse optimisation (3 Simple Steps)

October 25, 2012

To my mind the new version of Eclipse (Juno) seems to be running a little slower than Indego.

Here is a list of things you can try to enhance performance:

1)      The standard; configuring the C:\eclipse\eclipse.ini to allocate more memory on start up.

 

–vmargs

-Xms512m

-Xmx1024m

 

2)      Turn off any validators that you do not need. ‘HTML Syntax Validator’ is a big culprit.

 

Windows –> Preference –> Validators

 

3)      Deactivate plug-ins that you don’t currently use. I’ve found the ADK particularly resource hungry.

 

Widows –> Preference –> Startup and Shutdown

 

I also found that using the latest JDK makes some difference.

 

Hope this helps; any other suggestions welcomed
