Hello Everybody,

we are using PDT for several years.

Last fall we moved to Eclipse Juno and newest PDT version. Although the solution needed a bit tweaking during installation it works so far.

Our Setup:
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Java 8 (oracle)
- Eclipse 4.2 classic
- Anyedit plugin
- SVN connector (newest SVNKIT)
- PHP: Zend Server CE (newest),
- Mysql newest from ubuntu (5.5)
- machines have 8GB ram, 128 GB SSD, min 3.4Ghz Intel i5 CPUs
- projects: from svn, local checkout in /var/www, Zend Framework 1.12, ca 8-10k files per project

Generally the setup works fine however we have some issues
- stability: Eclipse blocks for a few seconds, hangs or crashes, mostly when accessing SVN, or when many projects are open
- speed: even with SSD (global search within the project) speed is not great
- resources: it eats a lot of memory/CPU away, we tried giving it more ram, less ram, different GCs... see config, after a day its at over 1GB ram and 30% CPU
- working sets: grouping by working sets works up to 10 projects, after that it becomes unstable
- using big JS libs like aloha editor or similar makes the system crash (have to exclude all js libs)

Attached is our current eclipse.ini

Please let me know what you think about it.

It worries us that the development on PDT has declined greatly, there are no stable new versions and the last properly supported eclipse is apparently Indigo.

3.1.1 is according to PDT pages a experimental version?!?

On the installation site the 4.2 link leads to a dummy page http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDT/Installation_3.1.1

see link at
http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDT/Installation#Eclipse_4.2_.2F_Juno_.2F_PDT_3.1.1

We would like to contribute but aren't capable of doing programming on Java.
Is the project dying? or can somebody help stabilize and update PDT for 4.2?

We think at the moment the features in PDT are great and would be happy if development can prioritize stability over adding features.

Im looking forward to your views and feedback.

best regards
Tibor

Because
1. Anyone can edit/contribute the page. (it is being damaged unfortunately...)
2. I would not like to describe to use eclipse 4.2 which is too much buggy. I strongly recommend using 3.8 instead, but it is my opinion.
3. Installation process is not so different from Indigo after all.

Thanks for the feedback.

The difference on 4.2 is that we need to install certain other plugin without which it wont work.

Since Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) is to buggy, im wondering why has it been then released or hasnt been fixed Sad
