When I start up the plugin inside eclipse, the startup procedes very quickly and then stalls at the very end for almosta minute(!). I have experimented in another eclipse instance that I use for development which include a logger. Here, the startup is even slower and produces a message from MWE (model workflow engine) that it is registering the parent to the eclipse installation folder as a URI. This is followed by a lot of disk activity.
The slow startup makes the component almost unusable for my purpose. I cannot expose the users to a startup time of over a minute, even if the resulting graphing tool is excellent.
I assume this is a configuration issue, as the dot bridge is compiled and does not require mwe. I have also run an experimient with 'plain' Zest and it is lightning fast.
