What other things PDS is doing during save?

Posted by jquerijero on 03-Nov-2015 12:43

I'm trying to figure out if there are some things that I can turn off to make saving in PDS faster. I already turned off auto-compile after save.

Some things I found which help:

Turn Off

 Preferences->Progress Openedge->Editor->Build->Compile on save if required

 Preferences->Progress Openedge->Editor->Apply keywords casing on save

Here are some general things I found helped another customer make PDSOE generally faster...

- Go into Window-> Preferences-> General ->Stardup and Shutdown and disable plugins you do not need so they don't load at startup

- Add the following line to the end of the $DLC\oeide\eclipse.ini


Go into Window -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors -> Spelling and uncheck the 'Enable spell checking' option

- The options listed in the following URL are good. In particular, tips 2, 4 (specifically the -Xverify:none option ) and 5 are ones I would suggest you implement. http://www.nicolasbize.com/blog/7-tips-to-speed-up-eclipse/ 

- Turn off label decorations by going to Window -> Preferences -> General -> Appearance -> Label Decorations and unchecking as many of the entries in the list as possible

- If you are running 64-bit PDSOE, in $DLC/oeide/eclipse.ini, increase the values for the -Xms and -Xmx options.  I use "2048m" as the value for both (seems to be fine for me, your mileage may vary).

Cheers, Brian

By default when you save some file, Build process getting kicked off and it will build all the dependencies. You can turn of “Build Automatically” option from Project menu options (Project > Build Automatically). You have to build manually once final editing completes.
Hope this helps,

Build Automatically is already turned off.

If you are using the Roundtable plug-in, after a save, the Roundtable builder will run as well (if you are using Roundtable) and the content will be saved on the central Workspace (if the Object has a share-status of “Central”).
