A few days ago - starting with platform
builds > I20080323-2000 if I read the CVS history correctly - the Platform
UI team has fixed (thanks!) this bug: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=146951
[EditorMgmt] Files shown with wrong icons in the navigator.
I am sending this note mainly to make
the WTP committers community aware of the change. Time permitting, please
also try to test the fix especially if you have workspaces with a large
number of resources in a single folder. The icon update to show the actual
icon for the underlying content type will be faster or slower, depending
on the number of resources in the folder and how fast the content type
If the number of resources is large
and the content descriptor slow you can sometimes see the content type
decorator system job's progress in the progress view. You need to turn
on the preference that will instruct the progress view to show the sleeping
and system jobs. Most times the job completes fast enough that you won't
get a chance to see it working.
If you have any feedback on functionality
or performance please provide it directly through comments on the bug.
