This seems to be the problem. I already sent the information to Yair
Zaslavsky (and Daniel Erez) who contacted me off-list about this (though I
think this really belongs on the list so everybody can chime in).
I attached the output I get. At the end I had to kill the process because
memory usage was at about 99%.
The command I'm running is: mvn install -Pgwt-admin,gwt-user
The system monitor shows cpu usage very low (up to the problematic point
the build seems to spend 90% of its time trying to download jar files from
bogus sources) and memory usage increasing slightly as expected until the
build reaches that last problematic part where all cpu cores go to 100% and
memory usage increases until all memory is consumed.
All those messages are expected, except the "Destroying process ..." at
the end. I assume that you get that when you kill the Java processes.
How long did you wait before killing them? I would suggest that you try
again and give it time to complete. GWT compiling is extremelly
Also you can reduce the number of permutations generated by the GWT
compiler and that will reduce the time it takes to compile. For example,
if you are going to use Firefox only as the client you can apply the
following patch to reduce the number of permutations to just one:
@@ -19,6 +19,9 @@
<set-property name="gwt.logging.logLevel" value="INFO"
+ <!-- Reduce the number of permutations to compile, just for
+ <set-property name="user.agent" value="gecko1_8"/>
<!-- Inherit oVirt UiCommon Web modules and GWT deRPC module -->
<inherits name="org.ovirt.engine.ui.GwtExtension" />
<inherits name="org.ovirt.engine.ui.UICommonWeb" />
Then compile with "-Pgwt-admin" only. That will generate the GUI but
only for Firefox. In my environment (Intel Core i5 8GB) this reduces the
GWT compilation to 4 minutes:
[INFO] WebAdmin ... SUCCESS [4:22.581s]
