If you have followed my earlier posts, then you know, that I’m in the process of building an IoT...
As I usually install JBDS and the Integration Stack several times in my machine or in virtual environments, I ended up creating a script to automate the installation process. There are two variants of the scripts, one forJBDS 7 and another for&nbs…
While working with SwitchYard, JBoss Developer Studio can be a pain in the ass. Red Hat is working to provide some better user experience, but in the meantime, you can try some of these tips.
Increase heap memory
Eclipse needs a lot of memory, and maven and SwitchYard projects even more, so provide with a good amount of it to your eclipse. Modify jbdevstudio.ini in the appropiate section:
|Provide a good amount of memory, so if you can give 3 or 4 GBs instead of 2 better.|
Disable automatic updates
Faster startup time. You’ll update or check for updates whenever you want.
Preferences --> Automatic updates --> (Disable) Automatically find new updates and notify me
Disable auto build
If you build whenever you want, the project you want, then disable. If you have a big ammount of projects you can skip having eclipse doing background building all the time. If you have few projects, you can keep it.
Project --> Build automatically (Uncheck)
Refresh workspace on startup
If you don’t do things on command line, then your workspace should be refreshed. If you use git (command line) or maven (command line) maybe you want to keep it:
General -> Startup and shutdown -> Refresh workspace on startup (Enable)
If you there is a lot of background task processing gone on validating your project (due to any facet your project has, like JPA, …)
Validation -> Suspend all validations (check)
Disable startup features not needed (FUSE, …)
Use the fewer plugins needed for your work.
General -> Startup & shutdown -> Plugins activated on Startup (Remove FUSE, Fabric8, JBoss Central, Forge UI, JBoss Tools reporting, Equinox autoupdate)
Disable XML Honour schemas
There is a known bug in JBDS and SwitchYard, so avoid it with:
XML -> XML Files -> Validation -> Honour all XML schema locations (uncheck)
Close JPA and EAR projects if not working on them
Every project that you have opened is both, eating resources and having to be check with the background tasks, so close them if not needed (as dependencies or at all)
