What I want is the lightest possible version eclipse so that it consumes as low memory as possible when running. Does any one know how to configure eclipse to be as light as possible?
Currently I am using Eclipse STS but I want to ditch it because it uses average 1 GB memory by itself when not running my projects. I am using 64 bit linux platform.
