Sleak plugin [message #482605] Thu, 27 August 2009 09:29 Go to next message

Hi All,

I am trying to use Sleak plugin for analysing SWT resource leak. I
followed the steps mentioned here : http://www.eclipse.org/swt/tools.php.

Sleak window appears but when I am running my application as eclipse
workbench and I try to use sleak clicking on snap it always gives me the
error :

Warning : Device is not tracking resource allocation

These are the steps mentioned to use sleak in the above article.

# Extract the .options file from the
eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.ui_<version>.jar archive to the eclipse/
folder.
# Add the following lines to the .options file:
org.eclipse.ui/debug=true
org.eclipse.ui/trace/graphics=true

I set both these optoions in .options file and kept the .options file in
eclipse/ folder as mentioned. But when I debug where the display is
created for Display.getDeviceData().debug and
Display.getDeviceData().trace. Both of them are false thought I set them
as true in .options file.

I might be doing somethin worng. May be not puting .options file at
appropriate location.

I also read on news group. This is one of the thread which was discussing
same issue.
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform.swt/m sg43284.html
but solution was not mentioned there

Any one Can help me??

Hello Hanish,

You can read the article at
http://eclipsesource.com/blogs/2009/04/17/finding-swt-leaks- with-sleak/

To enable the tracing option, go to the launch configuration.

Go to the tracing tab.

Check (enable) the plugin 'org.eclipse.ui'. On the right pane check
(enable) 'debug' and 'trace/graphics'.

Hi Hanish,

do you start your application with the -debug command line argument?

A note for others finding this topic: The -debug option can be specified in eclipse.ini (add it on a line before -vmargs).
