Re: Web App Launch View Activator displays repeatedly in Progress tab on Eclipse and debugging is very slow

"Web App Launch View Activator" is a Google Plugin for Eclipse thing, it doesn't come from GWT proper.
You'd better ask on StackOverflow (with tag google-plugin-eclipse), or in

Hi all,

I have a fairly simple GWT application that when I run in dev mode shows "Web App Launch View Activator" in Eclipse. This is causing problems, taking up a chunk of processing on my machine. It does the for about a while (a minute to several miuntes), then stops. I'm running in Firefox 20.0.1

It does this every time I visit a new "page" in my application (i.e. launch a new Activity and add the associated view to the page) or trigger somethings, but not all, on the UI. So, seems to happen when something new is added to the DOM maybe?

When it is displaying "Web App Launch View Activator" in the progress refreshing the browser to reload the application takes a very long time. If I wait for things to settle and the "Web App Launch View Activator" messaqes is no longer displaying a browser refresh is quite quick.

What is the GWT plugin doing when its is displaying "Web App Launch View Activator", what triggers it and what can I do to reduce the impact on my development?
