The start-up performance of the application can be affected by two main events:
1.launching the "shell"
2.Obtaining the content of the data source.
Since getting the data involves an additional layer that may be the cause of a perceived slowness for the application to be ready, we require that you create a new empty XML data source to measure the application start-up time. This will in help determine if the issue lies with the shell or with the data source.
