Hi,

We are customizing Eclipse to talk to mainframes. All the files reside in the mainframe and we create the links to the mainframe directly (remote files) and add then as files in the project. CIFS is the protocol used to communicate between the PC and mainframe.

Sometimes when the communication takes time to respond, we have observed that Eclipse (UI) goes completely blank (white) and we cannot see (UI) or perform any operation. For example Saving of file, or reading contents from mainframe.

Is this the expected behavior? or is there something else happening?
Can any one please help me understand this situation ?

Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.
Version: Indigo Release
Build id: 20110615-0604
Windows XP Professional Edition
Service Pack 3
4 Gigs of RAM.

It sounds like the communication is happening on the UI thread and once
that's blocked, the IDE can't respond to any window events, including
paint events...

Mahesh,

You can only influence this if you wrote the code; you'd not do IO on
the UI thread at all. If you're using things that do IO on the UI
thread, there's nothing you can do personally to influence this behavior.

That was useful Ed, Thanks a ton. Will hunt down the IO and create JOBS on the IO operations.
