Anyone have problems debugging in eclipse?
I'm using 3.5.2 with the latest release of the BlackBerry eclipse plug-in.
Whenever I try to debug performance is awful. I've tried cleaning the simulator etc, but with limited success.
The same code running in the JDE zips along during debugging.
It's now quicker for me to develop in eclipse (I'm more comfortable with editing), and then copy the code into the JDE to debug.

Do you mean that debugging using BB eclipse plugin 1.1 was very slow ?
I tried to use eclipse plugin 1.1 but have never succeed.
I stay with BB eclipse plugin 1.0.0, although I have to restart the simulator everytime I want to debug it.
BTW, the simulator startup time is depend on the kind of simulator that you uses. On 8330 is faster than 8520 or 9000.

Stepping through code line by line has become impossible using the eclipse plugin.
I can run from breakpoint to breakpoint successfully though the performance is still poor.
It seems to be since the last plugin update.

Our development team is aware of this issue, but it hasn't been addressed yet in a released version of the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse.

I am also having a very hard time debugging my code using the Eclipse BlackBerry plug-in.
It is at a point where I have to wait about 2 minutes for it to move to the next line.
Also I am getting an out of memory crash when I am debugging.
Hope RIM releases a fix soon

Hi Peter and BB-Dude. We understand that this is frustrating. Can I ask you to check what your -Xmx setting in your eclipse.ini file is set to? If it is less, can you try setting it to 768 and see if that helps?

That's the solution to the slow debugging problem.
It works like a charm now. Just modified the eclipse.ini and now I can debug very quickly.
Thank you very much indeed for this forum it saves me a lot of time.
