 Description  « Hide
The same problem reported in NUCACCECLIPSE-11 affects Maven, too.

In the Maven build, it is easily possible to disable forking (<configuration><fork>false</fork></configuration>) to prevent this problem. This, however causes the perm-gen-space memory consumption to increase significantly - especially when building a huge multi-project project. It is then necessary to either increase the perm-gen-space or to enable garbage-collection of the perm-gen-space (or both).

We should use the same new mechanism (=> "-lfl <fileListFile>" argument) that we introduced for the Eclipse plug-in here in the Maven plug-in.

This should - of course - be configurable. If (easily) possible, the new setting should be true on Windows and false on other systems.

Fixed in 4.0.0-m2-SNAPSHOT, thus 4.0.0-m2 should contain it. It seems, I cannot create new versions, hence I set 4.0.0.release as "Fix Version".

There is now the new configuration element "useFileListFile":


"useFileListFile" is - of course - only taken into account, if fork=true, which is the default (I only added it above to highlight).

There are three possible values for useFileListFile: true, false, auto

The first 2 should be clear. "auto" means currently to use "true" on Windows and "false" on all other systems.

However, because the command line has limits on all systems - see -, we might change the meaning of "auto" later to sth. more intelligent. Btw., on my GNU/Linux, "getconf ARG_MAX" tells me that my command line has a limit of 2 MB.
