KNIME SDK Setup for 3.6 repost


#1

Hi!

I reproduced the problems described in KNIME SDK Setup for 3.6. Since that topic is closed I am opening this one.

In the last days I noticed many warnings in the Eclipse console when launching KNIME from the SDK. First I thought it was my nodes but when I disabled the nodes in the workspace and only loaded the plugins from the KNIME target file I experienced the same issues. This was on 3.4 with this target file https://github.com/SiLeBAT/FSK-Lab/blob/master/de.bund.bfr.knime.fsklab.target/KNIME_3_4.target.

I also tried with 3.6 and the https://github.com/knime/knime-sdk-setup in a clean workspace with only the three projects from the SDK setup. From the 2018 releases branch I used the minimal target https://github.com/knime/knime-sdk-setup/blob/releases/2018-07/org.knime.sdk.setup/KNIME-AP.target. This is the 3.6 release, not the nightly one. Unfortunately I am still getting the same warnings and suffering the slow boot.

In case it helps these are the logs:

Thanks in advance,
Miguel

Hi @miguelalba,

I can reproduce the behavior that you are describing with master as well as releases/2018-07 of knime-sdk-setup. We are about to bump versions for the nightlies and will look into this while we are at it.

Best,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I pulled the changes from the SDK repo and I still get the warnings. Is there any updates?

Yours faithfully,
Miguel

Hi @miguelalba,
can you try the following ? It helped to improve the startup times for me:
Add the property:

-Dequinox.resolver.revision.batch.size=10

to the VM arguments in your launch configuration.

This fix is from https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=516664
best,
Gabriel

The warnings are new with Eclipse Photon, you can ignore them as they just point out resolver details.
What I also found out: switching to a fresh eclipse workspace greatly reduces the startup time.

best,
Gabriel
