Make Eclipse faster on Mac OS X

Copied from my other blog: pwbrewer.blogspot.com
Taken from this page on eclipse.dzone.com.

After you downloaded the Eclipse package, decompress it. Locate your Eclipse.app.
Right-click it and select Show Package Contents.
Under Contents/MacOS, locate the eclipse.ini file. Open it with a text editor.
At the end of the file, add two lines:
-XX:+UseParallelGC
-XX:+UseCompressedOops

Save and close the file.

To that I would add the server option to the same file:
-server

And I suggest changing the following settings:
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms64m
-Xmx512m
