that's doesn't work!!
I've tried to set ANT_OPTS from the command prompt:
set ANT_OPTS = -Xms512m
set ANT_OPTS= -Xmx512m
It has been set successfully, but still get outOfMemory Error !!

What I'm trying to do is writing a JUnit testCase for a method in a class, this method returns the sum of size of 3 ArrayLists in this class, in that method I want to check if the counter == Integer.MAX_VALUE then return Integer.MAX_VALUE!!

To be able to test this method I have to set the three Lists to number of elements it exceeds Integer.MAX_VALUE, so when calling size() method it will return Integer.MAX_VALUE!!

This is the testCase, but It gives me outOfMemory during adding elements to the lists:
public void testCollectionView1Accuracy1() throws Exception {
            for (int i = 0; i < Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2+100; ++i){
                  collection.add(new Character('A'));
            }
            for(int i = 0; i<Integer.MAX_VALUE/2+100; ++i) {
           elementsToAdd.add(new Character('A'));
        }
        collectionView = new CollectionView(collection, elementsToAdd, null);
            assertTrue("size() incorrect.", collectionView.size() == Integer.MAX_VALUE);
    }

what should I do??

The class is wrapper for some collections in java, I'm using it as a view so it allows to filter the collection, makes changes on it without affecting the original collection.

>>why does the test need to add so many elements to the collection?
to check if size() method returns Integer.MAX_VALUE if the sum of the three lists exceeds it!!
in the real-world this wrapper class will hold a large number of records from database, for large systems.
