Mobility is creating 28MB folder in user directory right after startup the IDE
with new userdir, without touching any Mobility functionality :
We also found this causes ~15 % startup regression (without WTK/with WTK) for
first start with new userdir as well as for existing userdir for big IDE :
For example: Win XP , JDK 6.0_01
without WTK with WTK
new userdir 20815 24459
existing userdir 12855 14039
BTW: this is serious problem for universities: they are used to have just one NB
installation and each student uses userdir located in her directory. So for
example for CVUT (28MB x 1000 students = 28 GB of emulators data!)
yes. It is because of wtk stores its data in the installation directory and
causes write errors and in fact prevents users from using key functionality.
This problems appears mainly in cases described in this issue, i.e. universities
with software installed in r/o locations and home directories on servers.
We have already reported the issue to the wtk team and hope it will be fixed soon.
It could be solved by the change of the emulator platform to WTK 2.5.1. There
should be a different installation model, afaik.
Reassigning to Adam, adding dependency.
Actually, the problem is even worse. On my machine it takes:
5.5 + WTK 2.2 - 28MB
5.5.1 + WTK 2.5.1 - 82MB
since we are going to replace 2.2 by 2.5.1 in 6.0 soon it should be marked as P1.
I increased the priority (P1) of bug reported to WTK team
we are working on the new way of installation
fixed. wtk 2.5.2 which is now bundled stores user data in user dir => no need to copy it over anymore
