[dsdp-tm-dev] RE: File Cache / Memory increase when opening FTP files

My concern is the following :
Let's say that the users are not aware of this Temp project (it is
hidden in the Java perspective for example).
The users will edit many Different remote FTP files that will be
downloaded into the temp project which will grow up to a size of 500MB
by default ?
Doesn't it affects performance of the Workbench ? Launching eclipse
every time ? etc...

Yes, RSE uses a temp file cache which resides in the 
RemoteSystemsTempFiles project. The benefit of this is that it avoids 
unnecessary re-download for files that have not changed (in other words,

it's a persistent cache, which is an important advantage over plain
Eclipse File System (EFS) based remote linked resources without RSE).

The size of the cache can be configured in the Preferences (I think that

500MB is the default). That page also has a "Clear Cache" button.

When you edit a file again which you've been editing before but has 
changed on the remote side, the same location in the cache is used thus 
overwriting the previous version of the file. So the cache should not 
grow unnecessarily.

If you have any more questions, just let us know.
