Thread: Spoon takes insanely long time to start

  1. #1

    Default Spoon takes insanely long time to start

    I am running Spoon - Pentaho EE V 6.1 on my laptop (8 GB RAM) and allocated 4 G to Spoon. Still it takes 3 minutes and 30 seconds to start. I dont have any plugins and my plugins directory is empty. I have also tried this by closing all applications and processes but with no luck. Am I missing anything obvious?

    Finally found the answer. Its a known issue and fixed under Version 7
    There seems to be a timing issue in the Karaf Blueprint Watcher where sometimes it will ask a bundle for its blueprint file before the bundle is in RESOLVED state. This triggers a (usually) parallel resolve that causes the bundle to be destroyed immediately after creation.

    I'm running 7.1 and still have this issue. Didn't get much from the JIRA tickets.

    I've removed all the PDI components described here:

    Spoon starts in 2 seconds now instead of 2 minutes.

    yep, but without repository. Doesn't it?
