Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

64 bit designer

in our computers we have 16gb+ ram is standart  but domino designer uses a little of them. domino designer works very slow. we need more perfomance on domino designer.

    It is slow because the Notes client is single-threaded.

    + Eclipse...

    I would not expect to much performance boost from 64bit alone.
    Just being able to allocate memory beyond 4 GB would give only incremental performance benefit.

    On the other side this sounds like a lot of work..

    I get regular (3-4+ day) crashes due to Out of Memory errors; trying to expand the underlying memory in the 32 bit shared memory results in instability and increased crash rates. 64 bit w/ better native support for more memory would go a long way towards making my workday less frustrating, more productive, and my clients happier.


    I develop for XPiNC applications.

    I set vmarg values like below, but sometimes still slow, especially, when I edit a heavy custom control.

    there are two ways.
    The first update Eclipse in Domino Designer and make it faster (this would not throw away all the components and the great work done for XPages)
    The second is to abandon Eclipse and think of something else (but what?) And to support the legacy part (forms, views, agents, etc. ..) that the XPages part
