Java.lang.outofmemory error - need help editing JRE parameters
Posted on 2004-08-13
I'm running an application that uses the Sun Java Plug-in 1.3.1_09 on a Windows XP desktop with IE6.
After running the application for a little while it locks up. When I review the Java Console, I see the error Java.lang.OutOfMemory Error.
I have done some research and the application's tech support site addresses the issue and provides the following recommendation:
"Here is the solution: Error: java.lang.OutOfMemory in java console
JRE parameters set on the machine: "-Xms128 -Xmx512 -Xss10"
Adjustment made to resolve:-Xms256m -Xmx256m -Xss6m"
Unfortunately they do not go any further and assume the user knows how to adjust these parameters.
Please provide suggestions on how I can implement the fix that is suggested.
