    My computer’s no slouch – I have a p7. Yet when MyEclipse starts up, it takes 60 seconds before the first plugin loads. It’s peppy from then on. During the 60 seconds, there’s barely any CPU.

    Is there any profiling setting I can turn on to see what’s taking so long?

    Can you go to MyEclipse > Installation Summary > Installation Details and paste the information here for me.

    If you switch to a new workspace and try starting up MyEclipse again, does it still take this long?

    Pasted below. And yes, when I start up in a completely blank workspace, it’s definitely faster.

    How many projects do you have in your old workspace? I believe it is one of your projects that could be causing the slow startup or your workspace could be corrupt. You can try using the -clean command to fix this issue.

    Incase the problem still persists, you should transfer you projects to a new workspace and resume working. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    The -clean option did not work, but I had some projects open that really didn’t need to be. One was pretty big – over 4,000 files. Closing them definitely improved startup time. I can live with that.

    criecke,

    Good to hear that you have a working solution. Adding to this you can also do the following to increase the performace of the IDE –
    Turn off features:
    Windows > Preferences > General > Capabilities > Advanced and disable the capabilities that you are not using

    #303294

    I found that removing “-clean” from the myeclipse.ini file reduced my startup time to around 10 seconds, from about 30 seconds.

    After the ide displays, it then checks for updates. Turning off the automatic update checking seemed to remove around 15 seconds delay until the ide is really usable (meaning that until that update window displays you might as well not edit anything because it’s just going to interrupt you anyway when it does).

    Opening the ide with a JSP as the active tab seems to add 10 seconds back to the start up time. Opening with .java file as the active tab does not.

    Joy – I’ve been hoping that some sort of update would occur that would address the slow JSP tooling/editing problems in 7.5. But it appears that the problem is still occuring in version 8 – would you or someone else involved with support please comment on this post https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topic/myeclipse-8-0-editing-of-jsp-html-javascript-painfully-slow/

    katesr,

    Can you install ME 8.5 and give it a shot? ME 8.5 has added performance improvements over ME 7.5 and ME 8.0. Please give it a try and let me know your findings.

    Looking at the posts it seems like I made the wrong choice in choosing MyEclipse 8.6! I had been using MyEclipse in the past and thought it rocked but now the lag is so unbearable that I simply cannot write any JSP or javascript code in it. Why is this so slow? Is there a setting I can change to stop doing extra checks or whatever its trying to do for the js code?
    I will download 9.0 M2 and see if thats any better.

    Best
