Eclipse: Making Heap Status visible

On eclipse based applications, there is a way to display the heap status on the status bar. The API which enables this feature is internal and the way to make it to visible is to create the plugin customization file.

Add the following property in the plugin.xml under the products extension

And on the plugin_customization.ini


The SHOW_MEMORY_MONITOR parameter will be looked when the workbench is created and if it is true it will create the heap status bar.
