Hello

I've just downloaded the newest eclipse and GWT plugins but I cannot use it... For some reason my eclipse get stuck every time I press mouse upon it or right mouse click.

It takes 10-30 minutes to go to GWT design mode.

I tried OS is Win XP Pro 512 Mb
and Win Server 2003 SP2 but nothing helps

Please help me to increase the eclipse performance

Thanks

I would recommend you to uninstall milyn plugin or all unused plugins. This would help to remove unnecessary load on eclipse.

The thing is... I installed just eclipse ganymede and it is pure IDE as I may think (no plugins on). Then I downloaded GWT and GWT designer plugins to be able write GWT apps...
Since then I have troubles
It works as slowly as no GWT tutoria shows

What I did wrong?

Please help

And I noticed the GWT design is always touches HDD but there was no save or compile command
WHy GWT is sticking to hdd and how to fix this?

I did no additional settings just downloaded eclipse and GWT essencial plugins so maybe I missed something? Give me a hand please

Well, if your computer has only 512 MB RAM, then that might very well be the problem. If there is not enough memory, the OS will start swapping things to disk, and all that swapping can make your machine react extremely slowly. Have a look in the Windows Task Manager, at the Performance tab, and see if it's using all your RAM.

If possible, try to add more RAM to your computer, so that you have at least 2 GB.

Wow does GWT demands 2 GB RAM to run?

Well I watched the TM and it shows eclipse takes <=150MB memory to run with GWT . But I also hears that 1GB RAM behaves the same slow with GWT so maybe there is a walk around?

5 browsers compilation at once decrease to just one for example?

I don't know if GWT demands 2 GB RAM, but 512 MB is not much for using Eclipse. RAM is cheap nowadays, I don't know in which country you live but here were I live (the Netherlands) 2 GB DDR2 DRAM costs only about € 30.

Try closing as many other programs that might be running in the background as possible.
