WID Heap Status

This is a back to basics tip, but I’m surprised by the number of questions about this from experienced developers.
I like to keep an eye of how much java heap WID is using, particularly while building big workspaces.

So I check ‘Show heap status’ in General Preferences:

Then you’ll see it at the bottom right corner:

WID’s default max heap is 512M. I normally change it to 1024 by editing eclipse.ini and changing -Xms512m to -Xms1024m

Short but sweet
