Re: [m2e-users] Having a Bad Week - eclipse sick

Back in the day, well, only a few years ago, I would get an eclipse crash and then have all sorts of issues after that. The solution then was to use an entirely new eclipse workspace. I know the prospect of using a new workspace sucks but if you are at the end of your rope it is something to try. I have also been known to blow away my eclipse installation, decompress it from zip again and reinstall all my plugins and create a new workspace.

Performance, yes, Eclipse and M2E combination is a memory, disk, and CPU hog. I give Eclipse a bunch of RAM and I try not do anything until the progress bar in the lower right disappears. It seems like most instability occur when users try to tell the IDE to do to much. Keep your eye on that progress bar on the lower right and don't do anything until that thing disappears.

You have my sympathies. Keep supporting the Eclipse and M2E dev team because integrating Maven with Eclipse this is a tough domain space.
