  • STS 3.0 and 3.1 with poor performance at all xml related tasks


    i am suffering under a bad STS performance when working with xml files (xml, xsd, jnlp, pom ...)
    That appears at 3.0 as also in 3.1.
    I have raised xms and xmx to 1024m what improves a little bit.

    Is there an alternate XML Editor or can i make better settings?

    best regards and thanks in advance

    There are some major performance improvements coming in this area for STS 3.2.0, which should be out in about a month. The M2 release should be available in a week or two.

    Until then, you can try moving to an Eclipse 3.8.1-based STS. These versions do not suffer from the same performance problems as the 4.2.1-based STS's. 3.8.1-based STS's are available from the download page. You can try that out first and then also wait for the 3.2 buids to come out.

      OK - thank you.

      Will the new release come via update mechanism or will i have to migrate manually?

      best regards

        Get it now, by using this update site:

        Or wait and download a pre-configured zip (I'd go with the first).

          I would also like to ask you to check the ST 3.1.0.RELEASE for Eclipse 3.8. I am aware of some performance issues around XML editors that are caused by the Eclipse 4.2 platform implementation, so I assume just taking a 3.8-based STS distribution and using that would be the easiest solution.
