Abstract: In a new workspace, selecting Window ? Preferences ? Maven, results in a mavenized workspace of approximately 400 MB even if the 'Apply' or 'OK' button are not selected. Problem: You select Window ? Preferences ? Maven and you notice the workspace size on disk increases by approximately 395-400 MB. Most of the files are created in the ?workspace?\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.m2e.core folder. The default checked preference: [x] Download repository index updates on startup option, causes a workspace to be 'mavenized'. For more technical details see M2E Bug 404417 - 'Indexes are refreshed (increasing workspace size) by just selecting Windows ? Preferences ? Maven ' https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=404417 Local fix: 1) To undo an accidently mavenized workspaces: - If you are not going to use Maven, 'uncheck' the Maven ? [ ] Download repository index updates on startup option. - If, somehow, the big files are there, you can remove the org.eclipse.m2e.core/nexus folder without any complications. 2) Do not select the wizard option: File ? New ? Other ? Maven ? Maven Project or the workspace preference page: Window ? Preferences ? Maven or Window ? Show View ? Maven ? Maven Repositories
In a new workspace, selecting Window > Preferences > Maven, results in a mavenized workspace of approximately 400 MB even if the 'Apply' or 'OK' button are not selected.
The Maven > Download repository index updates on startup option is unchecked by default now. This is to prevent the increase of the size of the workspace. If you are going to use Maven in this workspace, you need to check the Maven > Download repository index updates on startup option, and either restart the product or update the index of the repositories manually, using the Maven Repositories view: 1. Select Window > Show View > Other > Maven > Maven Repositories. 2. Expand Global Repositories. 3. Right click on central, and select Update Index The fix for this APAR is included in Rational Application Developer v8.5.5.
