Description Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2007-06-22 13:47:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm using Java Sun 5 (1.5.012). Eclipse will hang sometimes while compiling,
while other times attempting to open .java or .jsp files. 

I haven't been able to trace the error, but it hangs so often, I figure I could
help trace down the bug. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Eclipse 3.2.2 with WTP

How reproducible:
Very very often. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Fedora Eclipse and configure Sun's JRE
2. Use Eclipse as normal
3. Open a JSP file. 

Actual results:
Screen will hang. Waiting 30 mins will not solve the error. 

Expected results:

Additional info:
I'm using WTP. Installed from within Eclipse from site:

Unfortunately, we can't really support this situation because a) it's being run
with a non-free VM and b) you're using WTP which we don't package :(  A brief
look at the log you attached shows that something's missing JEM which is
provided by the Visual Editor but I doubt that's your problem.

Perhaps you should try an upstream WTP download -- they provide "all in one"
downloads that include all of their dependencies -- and see if your hangs still
occur.  At least then we could see if it's something in our SDK packages that's
causing this.  I doubt it is, but it's not entirely impossible.

Can you provide some details on your machine?  Also, what is in
/usr/share/eclipse/eclipse.ini?  You may try messing with the memory limits in
there (the -Xmx lines).  We don't munge them at all because gij doesn't use
them, but the Sun VM you're using will respect them.

Sorry it took so long to respond.

I installed Upstream "WTP- All in One", still hangs when loading JSPs, and
sometimes when doing heavy processing. 

Its a lot less frequent though. 

The only thing I had in eclipse.ini was -debug -clean, but I also tried leaving
it empty, and setting the Xmx and Xms lines to 512 and 256. The higher the
number, the more frequently it hanged. 

I have 2 gigs of RAM, so I doubt the error is there. 
Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2007-07-13 11:14:47 EDT
Since you're using the upstream download and it still hangs, I'd suggest asking
on the WTP newsgroup(s) or filing a bug against them at bugs.eclipse.org.
