Speeding SLOW Save and Refresh in Force.com IDE !

Force.com(Apex/Visualforce) developers spend lot of coding time waiting for file SAVE operation to finish. This is specially panic for developers working on huge force.com projects having many classes, pages, objects and components.

I recently figured out a way to boost-up the save and refresh(from server) speed on Force.com Eclipse IDE. The secret to go faster is to checkout only selective metadata components in a single force.com eclipse project. By default on creating a “New Force.com Project” in eclipse, “classes, triggers, pages, components, and static resources” are downloaded. I never need static resources locally in my eclipse workspace so why download them :-)

THANK YOU SO MUCH. This makes a huge difference in save speed for my project.
