Note that this has
been fixed in Eclipse with Bug
507103: Reduce memory footprint
of URLImageDescriptor .

[platform-ui-dev] Performance of URL in ImageDescriptor Sent
This is not specific to Eclipse platform.
It's a general Java anti-pattern to use URL class for adresses if you aren't
sure you'll use it for a connection. "Linters" like SpotBugs or
SonarLint help by reminding this rule whenever there is a questionable
usage of URL.

this is an abuse of the mailing list, the archive

able to find information on this anywhere else.
I have a distinct memory of an EclipseCon
talk about avoiding either URL or URI, because it triggered network requests
and was slow. I can't find it, or any reference to it. Does
anyone else remember this, or have any hints for how to find it?
