digitalmars.D.ide - Descent appears to be crashing Eclipse

Hello IDE NG,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this message, but wanting to
be helpful anyway ...

About two weeks ago Eclipse update brought a new version of Descent into my
environment
and since then (though I cannot be 100% sure), Descent seems to be frequently
hosing my Eclipse with an
out-of-memory situation occuring.  It is possible, of course, that another
plugin is causing the problem.

FWIW, I have captured the Eclipse error log to a text file and some fragments
of evidence are as follows:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui 4 0 2009-10-13 00:30:48.797

If interested parties would like a copy of my entire Eclipse log to assist
diagnostics & remedy,
please let me know where I can post/email it to.

Cheers

Hi Justin, This can be a place to post these bugs, another place is the bug-tracker of Descent: http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent/newticket There are two erros: one OutOfMemoryException and one NullPointerException. For the first one I need to know what project you have open: is it a big one? Does it happen with a specific module? For the second I need to know the exact source file, Descent has some unit-tests but not for every possible combination of character. :-) (I add tests for bugs as they are found) Ah, for the first one, if it's a big project it would help me a lot to open it and see where memory is spent the most. I found a very good way to diagnose and improve memory performance problems with Java programs.

Hi Ary, Thanks for yr response. This morning I pruned my Eclipse environment right down by especially uninstalling all plugins/features with "wst" in their name. Since then not only is Eclipse starting up much faster for me but Descent is seeming much more responsive and I haven't witnessed a(n) (Eclipse) crash today. All in all, I suspect there is an external error that Descent is not dealing with & this is causing the problem. This error seems to be a low memory condition caused perhaps by other plugins. As you well know, often is the case that one's application suffers because of another. It's probably no point sending you my Eclipse project without sending my entire Eclipse environment (which is now pruned right down). Best I keep a vigilant eye and see what else turns up in the next few days. Just in case it helps though, I'm posting my last saved Eclipse error log for when the crashes were happening. Best regards from Australia and thanks for work in bringing D support to Eclipse. -- Justin Johansson

For the NullPointerException, try updating to a new version of Descent (I uploaded a new one some days ago due to that exact same bug).
