Not Making a Splash

I’ve been using Eclipse, or Eclipse-based tools for many years now, and in all that time I’ve never had need to turn off the splash screen that is displayed when the tooling first starts. However, the latest and greatest Rational Software Architect from IBM (basically a huge plug-in to Eclipse) manages to hide the workspace chooser behind the splash upon startup. Since RSA can be a bit slow getting loaded and running it is easy to assume the worst and wait for the workspace chooser.

And wait.

And wait.

So I’ve added the -nosplash switch to my RSA shortcut thus eliminating the splash and making the workspace chooser visible as soon as it pops up.
