My experience with Eclipse has been that the more plug-ins loaded the more slowly Eclipse loads. This is especially noticeable for underpowered single CPU machines (found in government).

Can MyEclipse be tuned to load only the desired modules instead of all the modules?

Wel, i have been working with Eclipse for two years and did not find any way to load the needed modules (plugins) only. What i have experienced is to remove the unwanted plugins when it comes to a performance hit. But again, Eclipse (3.4) was not slow down the machine since there were only Spring Framework and Subversion plugins have been installed.

Fred,

Great question and this is *exactly* why we added the ability to turn off portions of MyEclipse you aren't using under the Window > Preferences > General > Capabilities menu, you can click "Advanced" and effectively turn off the MyEclipse features you aren't using.

Over time we hope to break out MyEclipse into it's major functional pieces under the Pulse provisioning system and allow folks to build it out piece-by-piece depending on what they want. That's still a ways off though and using the Capabilities menu will get you exactly what you want now.
