The 2.0.0.GA version contains some memory leaks in the VPE editor. You can try the 2.1.2.GA version in which those leaks are fixed.
Thanks; I will give 2.1.2 a shot.
Would you recommend upgrading from 2.0 GA to 2.1.2 through the Eclipse updates wizard or by re-installing the IDE?
I looked a bit more closely at the version numbers I have for JBoss Tools and I see the following:
JBoss Tools Archives - 2.0.1.GA
JBoss Tools Archives UI Plugin - 2.0.1.GA
JBoss Tools JSF - 2.0.0.cr1
Project Templates ""
Seam XML ""
Struts Validator ""
It kind of seems like I'm running a mix of 2.0.1 and 2.0.0? Any ideas?
It would be better to reinstall the IDE.
You can use the old workspace.
Not all plugins are changed between JBossTools versions. Some remain stable and unchanged, so what you're seeing is that divergence.
Other plugins which are new actually get a 1.0.0 version, since it's their first version. So you'll see in JBoss Tools 3 alpha that there are several plugins with 1.x versions, some with 2.x versions, and some with 3.x versions.
Hope that helps explain it ;)
Just wanted to give you all an update...
I upgraded from JBoss Tools 2.0.1 GA to 2.1.2 GA and the difference is amazing. Performance in general is much better; loading JSF pages and beans is much quicker.
I still hope there are improvements underway regarding the way JBoss Tools interacts with .project and .settings/org.jboss.tools.jst.web.xml. Especially when checking projects out from SVN - I usually have to go in and modify these files before the Seam and JSF capabilities will really kick-in. I only have to do this once for each new branch/project. Perhaps someday there will be less dependency on these files?
Regardless, I'm much happier with JBoss Tools at the moment!
It is a bug if you have to touch such files to make it work.
Please report in jira with what fails and what you actually do to fix it. Thanks!
