Hey all,

I am not sure where to start with this, but I've noticed that PDT is
extremely slow for me on Fedora 11 (development branch).

I thought that this was related to some other configuration I have, but
after uninstalling PDT and reinstalling phpeclipse after more than a
year of not using it, I was shocked at how fast it was.

Granted, phpeclipse & PDT do different things, but when even /typing/ is
an order of magnitude faster, I think it's beyond system configuration,
and there's something more up.

Does anyone know where I can go or what I can do to find a solution for
this? I do not think PDT was always this slow. I think the stable
releases of 1.0.x were reasonably fast, and it's only in 2.x that I've
seen this slowdown.

Hello Basil

The 2.0 pdt was not usable for us in production so we have switched back
to 1.0.3 on eclipse 3.3. When pdt 2.x get to the point where it as fast
as 1.0.3 we will give it a try again.
I have not tried 2.1 yet nor do I have the time at this point.

As I was struggling to get 2.0 up-to-speed I learned a great deal of how
eclipse and plugins work together. Therefore I have stopped using the
pdt-all-in-one packages and now use the eclipse update sites to get the
newer features and a much smaller eclipse directory.

What I do is download the eclipse runtime bin's for windows as this is
my home and production platform, add the pdt update site for 1.0.3 and
the tm.rse 3.0.3 which has the terminal feature, so I can scrap putty.
By doing it this way I get only runtime libs. To compare, my old
pdt-all-in-one was 140mb+ and then came the plugins. Now it is 98mb with
pdt, tm.rse and subclipse. Just remember to open the europa tree and
close the ganymade tree when you install pdt to use the "select
required" feature.

Hope this helps :)

I have to agree. PDT 2.1.1 is barely usable speed-wise (P4HT 3.2, 2GB RAM, Linux 2.6.31, JRE 1.5 or 1.6).

I am seeing 0.7sec+ per keystroke on PHP files < 3000 lines.
