Re: [ide-dev] Recommandation for optimal usage of IDE

Yeah, this would require adding new things like that. It’s unfortunate that these things are hardcoded in the launcher, which is a nightmarish bunch of C code (which I need to get into to get JavaFX launched properly). It would be nice to have an option that would filter a given set of args for a given JVM type, so we can add them at any time.. That’s worthy of a feature request.

My blind guess is that it is nearly impossible to decide within the Eclipse launcher executable what settings from the eclipse.ini should be taken into account, and which of them not. We had one case in the past (XX:MaxPermSize) where we added the Sun/Oracle specific XX: parameter and tested manually that it does no harm with other VMs.

Most if not all of the VM options seem to be specific to the Oracle VM.
Couldn't the launcher script be tweaked to allow setting different VM args depending on the JVM ?
