RE: [cdt-dev] Why does CDT contribute to early Startup?


The early startup for the CDT debugger is required to activate the
adapters used by the platform views. A CDT debug session can be started
without using any of the CDT debug components (by clicking the Debug
button on the toolbar, for example). In this case the adapters are not
registered and the views are not rendered properly. 
Probably, there is a way to load it lazily. Please, submit a request and
we will look at it.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Why does CDT contribute to early Startup?
Importance: High

Dear CDT developers,

I noticed today that CDT contributes to earlyStartup:
Window > Preferences > General > Startup and Shutdown
   "C/C++ Development Tools Debugger UI"
   "C/C++ Standard make Build UI"

I'm slightly worried about these entries, because they mean that even if
I do not use anything from CDT it will activate practically all the CDT
plugins (since Debugger UI depends on UI, which depends on Core; Make UI
depends on Make core); thus making my Eclipse startup time worse.

Is it really necessary to have these start up automatically? What
happens if I disable these?
Can these be improved in the future to allow for lazy plugin loading and
thus improved startup time?

Fast startup time is quite important for our commercial product...
