[Subclipse-users] Subclipse and Large Projects

We have been using JavaHL (the default when installing the plugin).

Agreed, conventional wisdom is to *not* trust TaskManager. I'm simply
trying to get a handle on why our large projects fail to load with the
plugin; the same project imports without incident using command line tools (
c:/>svn import ... ) - so it does *not* appear to be server-side related.

I've presumed JavaHL would have greater performability then JavaSVN.
However, if JavaSVN has greater reliability with a large project perhaps a
trade for potential performance is warranted?

It doesn't seem reasonable that a 46,000 artifact project should cause so
much hassle. Is this significantly larger compared to what others are


P.S. I must admit your assertion there is no test suite for Subclipse
caused a "gasp" on this end. We are on the verge of recommending a switch
from a (very) mature vendor implemented source control system to Subversion
for a Fortune 300 company. Integration with Eclipse is a critical success
factor. Is it possible your comment was contextualized - and there is a
unit test suite invoking plug-in code?

I do not know, this topic is not in my area of expertise. Subclipse is
Java code, if we had a memory leak in our code wouldn't the heap reflect
it? The heap is where the memory would have been allocated.

I have read that task manager is not a good tool to use to diagnose
problems with Java, but can't say a lot more. Are you using JavaHL or
JavaSVN? If the latter, then all memory allocations would happen within
Java. If the former, then the Subversion libraries would be doing their
own memory allocations. They could conceivably have memory leaks but
their code is also very well vetted, so it seems unlikely.
