Array Maximum Bounds - OutOfMemoryError

Posted on 2006-10-22
Last Modified: 2011-10-03

I'm trying to create an array with the following:

      int[][] imgArray = new int[3200][4800];

But i get an error:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

Why is this and is there any way around it? Are there maximum array bounds?

Increase the heap size
    -Xms<size>        set initial Java heap size
    -Xmx<size>        set maximum Java heap size
java.exe -xmx512m

Since 3200 * 4800 * 4 (int size) = 58.6 MB
