|Standalone Help startup time, precompiled JSPs? [message #474718]

We've been looking into using a standalone Eclipse Help system with some
of our products. One of our roadblocks is the startup time. A "cold"
start, where the server is not already running, takes a really long time
on some of our older machines, and a fairly long time even on newer
machines. The standalone help viewer appears relatively quickly, but it
can take over 30 seconds for the UI to be completely filled in and ready
I have a theory that this is related to compiling the JSPs. Every time I
start Eclipse Help, a bunch of .java and .class files, one for each JSP in
org.eclipse.help.webapp, get written to a subdirectory within
configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\48\data\jettywork. When I stop the
help system and server, those files are deleted.
Is there a way to make Eclipse not do that? It looks like
org.eclipse.help.webapp includes all the compiled JSPs within
Besides that, is there anything else I can do to improve the startup time?
