How to prevent "Building workspace...


  • Anonymous

    Hi there,
    i am using EPIC and the file-sync plugin to sync files when they are changed and saved. For this reason i have enabled "Build automatically".

    Sometimes i have the problem that eclipse needs to "Building workspace". This lasts hours and eclipse touches every file in the project. I only have this problem with EPIC projects.

    Can you help me to prevent oder fasten up this process?

    I don't know if this helps, but you can abort EPIC's ongoing project build by clicking on the red cancel button in the Progress view (you can try it out by "Project > Clean" - which triggers the rebuild).

    Generally, a rebuild of a the entire workspace may occur after you have not closed Eclipse cleanly, so you may also try to avoid that.
