RTC Eclipse Client preloader or silent startup

Toshihiko Fujimaki (111) | asked Nov 05 '12, 12:09 p.m.

I want to know how to silently start up/shutdown RTC eclipse client.

RTC eclipse client takes long time to start after first windows login, but second time it starts quickly.
The minimized option of windows shortcut file does not affect this.

If the shortcut uses -data <location of workspace> -nosplash, it will looks like silent.
I did several experiment to increase -Xms -Xmx option in eclipse.ini. I did not see great improvement in my PC. Maybe, it is related to CPU speed.

HiĀ  Amano-san,
Certainly your suggestion is no longer displayed workspace selection dialog, but eclipse workbench is appear in normal window size.
Is there any way to start workbench in minimum size?

-Xms (initial size) and -Xmx (max size) are options for defining how much memory is allocated for the VM. It will not significantly affect performance other than less memory might require more frequent VM garbage collection or cause out of memory errors. It can't make classes load any faster.

You may want to check the Eclipse runtime options but I don't know of any option that forces Eclipse to start minimized.
