Hello Committers,

The question is for the committers of the rcp project.

With the latest update of Firefox 3.5.4, the performance of firefox has dramatically improved. The browser opens within 1 second. I installed the GUI prototyping add-on to firefox - "Pencil Sketch". The application also opened in firefox in less that 1 second.

That means, we can create high performance desktop applications using firefox apis.

Can we open an RCP application in such a small time? What are the bottle necks in Eclipse which slows the RCP apps?

As of March 2009, Java is only 15% or more slower than C++ in performance on the Computer Language Benchmarks Game.

Regards,
Madhu

Hi Madhu,

I would say that in general, the speed of the RCP app startup is only slowed
down by the amount of processing the user requires. For instance, try to
start the example mail application. You will see that this will start under a
second. However, adding initial code, database access, bad behaving osgi
activators, etcetera and there you have a "slow starting" app. The Firefox
dudes got a lot of hassle about the speed of their app. They have tuned it
and so should RCP developers tune their app/

Regards,

Wim
