Eclipse 3.4.2 + - Online Builder - slowness issues


I am rather new the platform, I am trying to understand what is the best way to work with Apex to create my company site.

I currently use Eclipse 3.4.2 + perspective, so far I only created pages & controllers.

When I update the page or controller and try to save them using Eclipse the saving process can take more than 10 minutes.

I increased my DSL connection speed to 5Mbps, although I still wait more than 10 minutes for every save request.

Should I work with the online editors of instead of Eclipse ?

Should I update Eclipse to 3.5 ? or downgrade to 3.3 ?

Should I define something in Eclipse to speed "save" time ?

I would really appreciate any assistance or tip

Did you create your project in Eclipse directly against a production organizaton?


If so, what's happening is that the server is running all your Apex test methods every time you save/deploy.


The solution is to develop in a sandbox (where test coverage is not enforced) and then deploy all your changes to production in one transaction, using the Deploy to Server wizard in the IDE or any of the other various deployment tools.
