Is there a way to tell the Sun JVM that it can take as much memory as needed (preferred dynamically but any way will help) ?
Our Java2 applet can sometimes require 100s of megas.
The -Xmx parameter is very inconvenient : It must be changed individually on every client machine, and doing this automatically is not easy as we need to find the exact amount of memory on that client and update the JVM params. And also consider memory upgrades when this Xmx has to be updated etc.
There must be a simpler way !?
The (late) Microsoft JVM handled this nicely, simply dynamically allocating the heap etc. as required by the application.
Thanx in advance, Omer.
