Our developers use Servoy (8.1.1 RC) on VMware workstations (Win7 Ultimate) and on occasion, sometimes a bit more frequently than we'd like, the IDE becomes unresponsive. We've since learned to tweak the startup params to increase the heap size available to Eclipse, however, we still have issues with the IDE becoming unresponsive. This behavior is exhibited across multiple virtualized workstations and I was wondering if anyone is aware of any other tips/tricks related to Eclipse configuration (running in a virtualized env) that could benefit our developers. Thanks!
Is there a specific reason to use VMware workstations also for development tasks? I thought they are especially for enduser deployment. I guess that an application development framework like Servoy that is running on Java is not really ment to work flawless on VMware machines for development tasks. Please correct me in case I am wrong.
