The Gradle Dependency Container is currently removed and re-added when starting Eclipse. The removal triggers the autobuild, which starts recompiling. Of course since all dependencies are missing now, all files will be broken. Then when the classpath is re-added, everything is recompiled again. On our code base this means opening the workspace takes an extra 10 minutes. This is preventing us from finally moving to Buildship.
Buildship should cache the last known state of the dependency container and update it in the background without removing it completely.
