Hidden Memory Monitor in Eclipse 3.1
Eclipse 3.1 has a built-in Memory Monitor (aka Heap Status) Plugin, which
is a part of org.eclipse.ui.workbench_3.1.0.jar.
The only one problem with
it - this monitor is shown only if Eclipse was started in debug mode...
But debug mode is slow... The solution - you can replace the
default WorkbenchWindow class with the patched one and then you have a
nice Monitor and do not need to start Eclipse in debug mode ;)
Shutdown Eclipse, replace the WorkbenchWindow.class in the org.eclipse.ui.workbench_3.1.0.jar
and restart Eclipse. Voilà tout.
This patch works also with the 3.1.1 release of Eclipse, please note that
the jar file name was changed to org.eclipse.ui.workbench_3.1.1.jar.
Simply use it.
