Image : "Out Of Memory" problem

I'm creating a Java image that representing data scanned by a camera.
I put this image in a JScrollPane. The image can be very big (500x80,000 pixels).
My worst problem is that I get (when the image is very big or when the screen resolution is very hight) an "Out Of Memory" Exception. Otherwise, when it works, it takes very long time for the image to be drawn.
The image is "very" simple : less than 10 colors and I use mostly "g.fillRect(...)" see my pseudo code below.

Is there any better ways to draw this image using less memory and less draw time ?

Thank you.

NB : when I use the "-Xmx200m" option to run the application I solve the memory problem but i'm looking for a better way. Also the draw time problem still exist.


private Image img_=null;

public void paintComponent(Graphics gr){
     super.paintComponent(gr);
     if(img_ == null){
          Dimension d = getSize();
          img_ = createImage(d.width, d.height);
          Graphics g = img_.getGraphics();

          (...)
          g.setColor(...);
          g.fillRect(...);
          g.drawLine(...);
          g.drawString(...);
          Graphics2D g2d = (Graphics2D) g;
          g2d.setPaint(...);
          g2d.setStroke(...);
          g2d.draw(new Line2D.Double(...));
          g.drawRect(...);
     }

     gr.drawImage(img_, 0, 0, this);

}

Luca,
How did you build your application.
For long images memory required is more and possible of out of memory.
But wonderful abt the smaller images.
