      Description

      Creating a new "Database Connection" in a PDI transformation takes a long time for the settings window to appear when using Ubuntu 14.04. Other environments do not have the same behavior.

      There was no repository connection involved.

      Version Ubuntu 14.04 Time to Open Ubuntu 12.04 Time Windows 7 Time
      5.1.0 7 seconds 2 seconds 2 seconds
      5.2.0 13 seconds 2 seconds 3 seconds
      5.3.0 9 seconds 3 seconds 2 seconds

      During the time when the Database Connection window is waiting to open, more than 14,000 log messages printed into the console window. A log file is attached that contains only the log lines printed while the Database Connection window was opening.

      Reproduction steps:

      1. Open a Terminal window, navigate to the data-integration directory
      2. Execute spoon.sh. Wait for the application to start, and for log messages to slow down/stop printing to the Terminal window.
      3. Create a new Transformation
      4. Switch from the Design tab to the View tab, which lists Database Connections
      5. Right-click on the Database Connections folder, and click New

      Expected results: The window opens quickly (less than 3 seconds)
      Actual results: The window opens in 10+ seconds, and you take a coffee break
