Hi All


Why I am asking this question is  Afer having a testrun on my system, program raised OutofMemoryError though my system contains 150 MB of free memory at the time  of Memory raised.

I haven't  understand why java vitrual machine is not using free mory that still exists


Following is the program to test the JVM performance


public class StringBufferTest
{
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            int i=0;

            StringBuffer sb=new StringBuffer(3365);
      for (i = 1; i <=10000 ; i++) {
      long t3 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        // sb=new StringBuffer(n);
            int len=sb.length();
         sb = updateStringBuffer(sb);
         String s2 = sb.toString();
      long t4 = System.currentTimeMillis();
      System.out.println("StringBuffer with initial length "+len+" took "
         +(t4 -t3) +" milliseconds for appending 3365 characters and StringBuffer size is "+sb.length()+ " and it's capacity is "+sb.capacity());

      }

      }

   public static StringBuffer updateStringBuffer(StringBuffer sb) {

      sb.append("A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text.... A Large Text....

the vm only uses the amount of memory allocated to it.
Use the -Xmx option to increase max memory available to vm.

eg. to give it 150Mb use:
-Xmx150m

Unless you can be more specific I can't help you.
As I stated originally the amount of free memory available to the OS is not related to the amount available to the vm.
If you want to increase the memory available to the vm use the -Xm option.
