Eclipse updating indexes slow
Eclipse is the market leading IDE of choice for Java developers.It’s a rich featured IDE which makes developing code in Java super simple.However, we’ve all at some point said or thought to ourselves, .To be honest, it might be working on a bunch of tasks that event the Eclipse foundation aren’t sure about, but some of which we can explain to you, and eliminate for you so that your Eclipse can run faster, just like when you first unwrapped it.Multiply that by 10 add 5, divide by 2 and square it.You now have a measure of how annoying this can feel.Simon Maple is the Director of Developer Relations at Zero Turnaround, a Java Champion since 2014, Java One Rockstar speaker in 2014, Duke’s Choice award winner, Virtual JUG founder and organiser, London Java Community co-leader and Rebel Labs author.He is an experienced speaker, having presented at Java One, Java Zone, Jfokus, Devoxx UK, Devoxx FR, Java Zone, JMaghreb and many more including many JUG tours. When not traveling, Simon enjoys spending quality time with his family, cooking and eating great food.
We often dream that things will run faster (perhaps you’re serving a jail sentence), or happen sooner than they do so they’re not as annoying.
It’s particularly painful, when you have little or no control over the thing you’re waiting for.
Time seems to stop and every second feels like an eternity.
Let’s go through each one individually and show you how you can fix them. This might seem obvious, but Java applications are rarely tuned with reasonable Java memory settings from the outset and you’d be well advised to change yours to reduce constant heap expansion which really slows general startup and running down.
Your settings will of course depend on your detailed environment, but here are some suggested settings which will give you a much more performant environment from the outset: flag used to dictate which garbage collector strategy to use.
