When I do a full compile the memory used by eclipse (as reported by windows) increases about 8 MB for each compilation that is required.
Eclipse: 3.4.2 Build id: M20090211-1700
Eclipse starting memory size: 92,224KB
After 2 hours the memory footprint is 384,509KB and windows complains that resources are low and eclipse should be closed
Note: This problem only started after installing Checkstyle
I would suggest raising this at the Eclipse plug-in web site. This project is responsible for the core engine, not the Eclipse plug-ins.
FYI - I use Eclipse 3.4.1 + Eclipse-CS beta 4 and do not experience this problem.
